New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Zaza Pachulia and Giannis Antetokounmpo each posted double-doubles and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the New York Knicks 95-82 on Sunday night.

Pachulia had 16 points and 14 rebounds, while Antetokounmpo added 16 points and 12 boards for the Bucks, who have won three of their last four games. Brandon Knight put in a team-high 17 points in the triumph.

Tim Hardaway Jr. poured in 17 points and J.R. Smith supplied 15 points, seven rebounds and four assists for New York, which has lost 11 in a row for the first time since 1984-85.

"They're going to get healthy and be better than what their record is," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said of the Knicks.

The Knicks have lost a franchise-worst 10 consecutive games at home.

"It will turn for us, it just doesn't look that way right now," Knicks coach Derek Fisher said.
