MILWAUKEE, WI (WHBL) - The Milwaukee Bucks lost their fifth straight home game, 107-101 in double overtime Wednesday night to the New York Knicks. Andrea Bargnani missed a three-pointer with 11.3 seconds left that could have put the Knicks in front by one. John Henson then sent the game to a second overtime with a tip-in at the other end. J-R Smith put New York in front for good with a jumper early in the second O-T. Carmelo Anthony then finished off the Bucks by scoring 8 of his 29 points in that second overtime. The Knicks led by as many as 9 in the second quarter, but there were 19 lead changes and 11 ties in the third-and-fourth periods. Former Buck Beno Udrih scored 21 for New York. Tyson Chandler had 9 points in his first game since November fifth. Milwaukee point guard Brandon Knight had 36 points in nearly 50 minutes. He also committed 8 of the Bucks' 22 turnovers. Henson had 20 points and 14 rebounds. Bucks' shooting guard O-J Mayo missed the game, while attending the funeral of a grandmother. Milwaukee only dressed eight players. 19-year-old rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo became the youngest player to start an N-B-A game since 2006, and the youngest in Bucks' history. He had 10 points and 7 boards. The Knicks won their seventh straight over the Bucks despite being out-scored at the free-throw line 25-14. Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said he felt his team wore down mentally, as they dropped their 15th of 18 games after starting at 2-2. The Bucks will play at Cleveland tomorrow night.
