Was this a big win? I’d say. The Bucks hadn’t beaten anyone significant heading into Wednesday night’s win and now have a bit of a feather for their cap. Scott Skiles talked about dominating at home before last Saturday’s game against New York and to do that, it’s important to blow out the bad teams and beat the good teams. This is a step in the right direction.
It all starts with Anthony. ‘Melo dropped 33 on the Bucks in their meeting last February and got to the free throw line 16 times. That’s been a problem for the Bucks again this year and should be a focus for the Nuggets. The Bucks showed they do have some scoring punch against the Knicks and they’ll need all of it against a not-so-great defensively Nuggets team to keep up.
