The Knicks defense continues to underperform against top competition

The Knicks are now 0-6 on the season against the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics. Three of the Bucks’ best shooting games this season have come against the New York Knicks.

After a strong defensive performance against the Nets and Lakers, New York gave up 130 points to a team considered one of the best in the East. In the game where you expect them to play harder, Coach Thibodeau also mentioned the low energy of the Knicks players.
