MILWAUKEE — Maybe it wasn’t David Fizdale’s fault.
Fizdale was out as coach one game after a 44-point blowout loss to the Bucks here on Dec. 2. So what’s the solution when the Knicks ventured to FiServ Forum again Tuesday and found themselves trailing by 35 points in the third quarter, settling for a 128-102 loss to drop to 11-30 at the season’s halfway point?
The simple solution is that the Bucks (36-6) are a very good team, the Knicks are not a good team at all. Changing coaches doesn’t fix that.
The Knicks had tried to push the memory of that game out of their mind, but the Bucks put it right back in the forefront as they never trailed, opening a double-digit lead just minutes into the game and methodically pulling away as the game wore on.
