The Knicks were hoping his return would bolster their struggling defense against the Bucks’ impressive offense. Milwaukee ranks 3rd in field goal percentage, 9th in points per 100 possessions and 10th in three-point percentage.
The Greek Freak’s breakout season has been well-documented and Parker has turned into a well-rounded offensive player, averaging nearly 50 percent from the field and 40 percent from three-point range.
The Knicks really could’ve used their unicorn tonight.
Wednesday’s game tips off at 7:30 p.m. ET on the MSG Network.
