The Milwaukee Bucks are clinging to the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference as they welcome the New York Knicks to the B-M-O Harris Bradley Center tonight (Friday).  Interim coach Joe Punty’s team has lost six of its last seven games, but it has handled New York this year, beating the Knicks every time they met.  Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is starting to play up to his potential again, gashing Houston for 30 points last time out.  New York is even colder than Milwaukee, losing 13 of its last 14 games.
