New York Knicks Team Report – April 4

=== New York Knicks Team Report – April 4 ===

(Sports Network) – The Knicks’ recent woes continued on Sunday as they fell
106-102 to the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center.

Tim Thomas had 23 points for the Knicks, who have dropped six in a row.
Maurice Taylor had 18 points for New York, which has dropped nine of its last
12 overall. Taylor has registered double-digits in scoring in two of the last
four contests.

Kurt Thomas tallied 13 points and 12 rebounds, while Stephon Marbury tacked on
15 points and nine assists. Jamal Crawford posted 11 points in the losing
effort. Thomas is averaging a double-double with 11.7 points and 10.4 rebounds
per contest.

The Knicks shot 42.2 percent from the field in the game, including 7-of-21
(.333) from three-point range. New York hit 19-of-25 (.760) from the free
throw line, but committed 17 back-breaking turnovers which led to 25 Milwaukee
points.

New York seems happy to continue increasing its amount of balls in the NBA’s
lottery for the upcoming draft. The Knicks currently own the eighth-worst
record (29-43) in the league, just 1 1/2 games ahead of the steadily improving
Golden State Warriors.

The Knicks have a day off before hosting the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night.
New York will also take on New Jersey at the Meadowlands (Thursday), Chicago
at home (Friday) and Indiana at Conseco Fieldhouse (Sunday) this week.
