Knight's three knocks out Knicks

MILWAUKEE - Brandon Knight's three-pointer with two seconds remaining propelled the Bucks to one of their most exciting wins of the year, 101-98 over the New York Knicks Monday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Carmelo Anthony hit a three to tie the game with 19 seconds to play, part of a 36 point night for Anthony. J.R. Smith added 30.

But in the final seconds, it was Knight who delivered the dagger, shooting a three from the wing over a leaping Raymond Felton.

The night was especially satisfying for 19-year-old Bucks rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo, whose family got to see him play in the NBA for the first time Monday night. The Antetokounmpo family had been experiencing visa issues that delayed their move to the United States for several months.

Giannis scored 15 points. Knight led the Bucks with 25 and seven assists, and Khris Middleton added 19 points for the Bucks (9-39).
