Milwaukee (36-38 SU, 33-41 ATS, 36-36-2 O/U) is coming off a 107-98 loss at home to Minnesota on Wednesday, giving 4.5. New York (48-26 SU, 40-32-2 ATS, 35-37-2 O/U) has won 10 straight including a 95-82 win over Atlanta on Wednesday night. The Knicks are rolling and as long as they have Carmelo Anthony, Ray Felton and J.R. Smith in the rotation, this is a tough team to beat. They are also trying to hold off the Indiana Pacers to keep the number two seed in the East. They are led by Anthon, who after scoring 50 points in a win over Miami on Tuesday, produced 40 to spark a 95-82 win over Atlanta on Wednesday. Anthony has shot 35-for-53 (66 percent) in the two high-scoring efforts and should get his share of looks against the Bucks, who are stuck in the eighth seed in the East. The Bucks allow teams to average 100.5 points per game and the Knicks average 99.4 points. Expect Anthony to go off on the Bucks and continue his scoring barrage. The Bucks travel to Madison Square Garden to take on the Knicks at 7:30pmET on Friday.
