On Saturday, the Bucks blew a 64-49 halftime and matched a franchise low with eight points in the third quarter of a 98-94 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Knicks are 3 1/2 games behind the Bucks and Wizards and have lost 12 of 20 games since the start of February.
New York comes off consecutive losses, including Friday’s 107-104 setback at Atlanta. Allan Houston led the Knicks with 28 points and Kurt Thomas added 26, nine rebounds and five blocks. But Latrell Sprewell made just 3-of-15 shots and was only 2-of-7 from the free-throw line.
