Carmelo Anthony's had tests on his sore left knee, which has been an issue since the 2nd game of the season. More: es.pn/11rmONz

Chris Herring

My nephew looks like he's about to be the coldest harmonica player this side of the Mississippi. http://t.co/7meCj3AYAQ

Ian Begley

Derek Fisher's defensive strategy includes the idea that threes "won't beat you." Is that hurting the #Knicks? More: es.pn/1uGW1ZR

Frank Isola

Melo claims his knee has been sore since Oct. 30 proving again that him losing a few pounds was a story almost as overblown as the triangle

Tina Cervasio

Carmelo says his knee has been bothering him since CLE game (Oct 30), he's had tests, & more on loss->VIDEO: msg.com/teams/knicks.h… #Knicks

Steve Popper

A 3-9 record is bad. Falling behind the Bucks by 26 is bad. But if Carmelo's knee is a problem that's a disaster for the Knicks.

Steve Popper

JR Smith: "For some reason it’s something we have to be reminded of, to play hard, something that’s really embarrassing at some point."

Alan Hahn

Thanks. RT @MRNYKALLDAY: Always good insight on Wally Wall. This time bad overplay Defense by knicks #unbias @Alan Hahn @Wally Szcerzbiak #nykextra

Marc Berman

Anthony says knee has been sore since Cleveland and has had tests but claims it's "not that serious.''

Steve Popper

Carmelo said left knee has been hurting since second game and got worse tonight. Hasn't talked about tomorrow yet.

Al Iannazzone

Anthony said he's playing through it and plans to continue to do so.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo said his left knee has been bothering him since second game of the season. Said he has had some tests but didn't say what it is.

Chris Herring

Carmelo says he's had tests on the knee. Tape came off of it tonight, and he could feel it while he was trying to play thru the issue

Chris Herring

Melo says he left knee has been sore since the Cleveland game. Yikes.

Chris Herring

Not really a training room in Knicks' locker room. So Melo is in here getting his sore left knee iced down as other players give interviews.

Marc Berman

Melo on trainers table getting treatment. Right knee in brace. Fisher said nothing serious though.

Chris Herring

He sends people to the line every other play, and struggles to board. RT @The_OrangeMamba: why not play stat more mins if there's no limit?

Jonah Ballow

Fisher said he'll talk to Melo & medical staff about his knee that had to be re-taped. We'll talk to Melo in a couple mins in locker room.

Jonah Ballow

Fisher said Acy & Jason Smith not receiving time was due to matchup issues. He felt they needed to go small vs. MIL.

Chris Herring

Fisher: "Our offense was coming easy. And I think it played into the mindset that we didn't have to get [defensive] stops every time down."

Steve Popper

Kidd needs to balance free throw shooters here with players who aren't completely panicked.

Jonah Ballow

Fisher will go off/def w/ THJ on offense & Prigioni on defense.

Steve Popper

Whatever happens here, it's astounding how few fans are here in Milwaukee.

Steve Popper

Bucks had 95 points through 3 quarters - now have 5 FG's in the 4th - and 6 turnovers.

Steve Popper

Kind of funny to watch J.R. and Quincy Acy calming down Shumpert after near blows with Giannis.

Jonah Ballow

Kidd letting his team play through this #Knicks run.

Chris Herring

People keep saying defensive effort hinges on the O. Knicks have shot 50% basically every qtr tonight. Its a flawed team that can't defend

Chris Herring

It's definitely not effort, IMO. RT @Gibberman10 : Can we stop making believe the Knicks issues are "effort?" It's a personnel thing.

Jonah Ballow

I do not like what I hear from twitter on this KU-UK game.

Jonah Ballow

Hardaway Jr. trying to jumpstart a big comeback w/ 20 off the bench on 7-for-10 shooting from the floor and 3-of-6 behind the arc.

Chris Herring

Love Shumpert's effort on the glass.

Chris Herring

Every Bucks' player who's taken a shot attempt tonight is shooting at least 50% in this game.

Chris Herring

SMH; @Al Iannazzone making fun of me for dancing outchea. But he's dancing, too. He clearly just needs to let me be great once and for all.

Jonah Ballow

A 7-footer euro-stepping like Giannis just did is terrifying.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo appears to be wincing. Down 21 Fisher should think of pulling him out.

Steve Popper

And to add to the bad news - Carmelo is clearly limping and wincing.

Chris Herring

Carmelo's knee clearly bothering him.

Steve Popper

Bucks are so young, tall and athletic. You'd think they'd have more fans here, even if it's just to get out of the cold.

Alan Hahn

I haven't heard a specific reason. RT @flatbush_finest: @Alan Hahn any reason why Acy is a DNP so far?

Steve Popper

Bucks are out rebounding the Knicks 35-14. So bad offense, horrific defense and lazy board work.

Steve Popper

I know Giannis is growing taller every minute, but he's still playing the wing - and just got 3 offensive rebounds over the Knicks center.

Al Iannazzone

The Bucks have more offensive rebounds than the Knicks have rebounds. Even @Alex Raskin knows that's not good.

Marc Berman

Rebounding edge to Milwaukee is 35-14. Kidd is headed to Brooklyn later tonight with a winning team.

Alan Hahn

Don't have dribble-drive guards. RT @kenkward: @Alan Hahn how come nobody drives to the basket.

Steve Popper

The Bucks rank 25th in the NBA in scoring. They have 83 midway through the third quarter - up 24 on the Knicks.

Al Iannazzone

Derek Fisher must be doing the Phil thing of not calling timeout to see how his team handles trouble.... They're not handling it well.

Marc Berman

Honestly, #Knicks look as frozen as the Milwaukee wind on defense. Looks like they are saving now for Minnesota tomorrow. Disgraceful.

Steve Popper

If Iman Shumpert was playing for the Bucks tonight the score would be Milwaukee 1,000,000-Knicks 38

Al Iannazzone

If Iman Shumpert wasn't here, the Knicks would be down 40.

Steve Popper

So easy, every time. The Warriors are just scoring at will on Knicks. What? This is the Bucks, not Golden State? Oh boy, that's a problem.

Steve Popper

To start the 2nd half the Knicks defense allows 2 open 3-pointe looks that the Bucks pass on and take a layup instead. And then another one.

Chris Herring

Other bright side: I'm in a good mood at the arena, and have Dougie'd and Schmoney danced multiple times tonight.

Alan Hahn

#Knicks allow 9.4 threes per game, for 28 points per game. In the first half, Bucks hit 7 threes for 21 points.

Chris Herring

Bright side: Shump looks great; Knicks shooting 54%. Glass half empty: Bucks are 2nd-worst O in NBA, yet shooting 61% and have 66 at half.

Alan Hahn

The continued inability to contain dribble penetration is the genesis of this teams defensive issues. Same as last season.

Steve Popper

Coincidentally, he also had an open 3-pointer. RT @Scott Cacciola: Knicks down 17 at the half. This is known as the @benjstrauss curse.

Scott Cacciola

Knicks down 17 at the half. This is known as the @benjstrauss curse.

Chris Herring

Knicks lose Melo briefly while he gets his knee taped. Offense grounded to a halt, while floodgates opened on D. Bucks lead 66-49 at half.

Marc Berman

#Knickis gave up 120 to #Bucks in preseason loss. MIlwaukee on pace to shatter it with 66-49 halftime lead.

Steve Popper

Bucks are blowing by Knicks defenders - layups or kicking it out to open 3-point shooters. And they don't even have Zen.

Chris Herring

God Bless 'em, tho. RT @thatNYKfan: @Chris Herring The Bucks are shooting 70% from 3.

Chris Herring

The Bucks have missed 16 shots. They've gotten nine offensive rebounds off those misses already.

Steve Popper

Despite Carmelo's knee retaping, the Bucks are right now running the Knicks out of the empty building - 62-47 late in 1st half.

Marc Berman

Bucks shoot to 59-47 lead. #Knicks living and dying with Travis Wear's jumper. Only Begley wants to see that and he's not in Wisconsin.

Al Iannazzone

Bucks are shooting 61 percent. Offense isn't the Knicks' issue. It remains defense.

Tina Cervasio

Melo is back. Tape on left knee. I may have typed right, in hast earlier. #knicks

Steve Popper

Now we see why Melo walked right across the court - because he's checking right in.

Alan Hahn

Against team last in 3PT% defense. RT @KEGR123: @Alan Hahn a team LAST in 3pt shooting 67% from 3

Al Iannazzone

Make that Melo just checked back into the game.

Steve Popper

Carmelo back from trip to the locker room - he not only is walking well, but walked right across the court.

Jonah Ballow

Melo now making his way back to the bench and will check right back into the game.

Al Iannazzone

Melo is back, walking to the bench.

Marc Berman

Hope Anthony didn't catch Cleanthony's loose particle. Melo winced after a rebound. Back getting knee taped. Interesting.

Jonah Ballow

Correction: Melo is getting his knee re-taped not ankle.

Tina Cervasio

Carmelo went back to locker room to get right knee re-taped. He's expected to return. #Knicks

Alan Hahn

According to @Tina Cervasio, Melo getting tape on the knee that's been bothering him. He wore tape on it last game.

Alan Hahn

Melo is headed to the locker room.

Al Iannazzone

Carmelo is heading to the locker room with a Knicks' trainer.

Chris Herring

Carmelo headed to the locker room with 6:35 to play in the half

Steve Popper

Derek Fisher praised Bucks defense on the season. Right now Kincks are shooting 63 percent from the floor.

Jonah Ballow

Travis Wear on the floor for the #Knicks. Fisher said he likes his versatility on the defensive side of the court.

Chris Herring

Tonight marks 4th-straight game Knicks have allowed 30 points or more in the first quarter.

Chris Herring

Feels like Knicks have shot really well in opening quarters for the past week. But they don't get nearly enough stops to build leads.

Alan Hahn

The good news: Knicks score 30 in 1Q again. Bad news: Allow 30.

Chris Herring

Melo hits buzzer-beating jumper to end 1Q. Knicks shoot 60% to open the game, but only have a tie to show for it.

Jonah Ballow

Shump next to me here just off the floor on the bike. Fisher talked about making sure he stays warm w/ that hip injury.

Jonah Ballow

Already 3 trips to the line for Melo. Good sign as he continues to be aggressive & seek FT opportunities.

Steve Popper

Does anyone have the "DidTimHardawayJrShootIt" domain name already?

Jonah Ballow

Weird I saw the movie James Franco was in last night & now he’s playing for the Bucks wearing No. 7.

Chris Herring

Shumpert has looked like a new player this year. Still has a lot to work on, but he's played so much better in this offensive system.

Alan Hahn

Shumpert should cut his flat top into a triangle.

Marc Berman

Shump 5 of 6 for 11 points. Gosh, to watch a shell of him play last season and stand in the corner. Triangle has enlivened him.

Al Iannazzone

Shumpert is making his presence felt on offense - 5-of-6 with 11 points. But two turnovers on bad passes.

Jonah Ballow

Man, Shump looks dialed in tonight. He’s drilling that fadeaway jumper. #Knicks

Chris Herring

Lowkey, Shumpert's hair is beginning to look like those hats the security guards wear at Buckingham Palace.

Marc Berman

Shump's back. Hits open J from elbow on first possession. Points to get Melo in right spot on 2nd possession. Takes handoff for layup-and-1

Alan Hahn

No. RT @wendo2000: @Alan Hahn if he scores less than 30 can i get one haha
