London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - O.J. Mayo scored 22 points and the Milwaukee Bucks handed the New York Knicks their franchise-worst 16th straight loss with a 95-79 victory Thursday at O2 Arena in London.

"I love the international atmosphere," Bucks coach Jason Kidd said. "As a player and as a coach, I've had some success. I've been very fortunate to have as a player some great teammates to help us win, and also as a coach, some great players to step up and deliver."
Knicks star Carmelo Anthony had 25 points and three steals following a six- game absence due to a knee injury. Travis Wear added 13 points off the bench.
New York, which turned the ball over 21 times, has not tasted victory since Dec. 12 at Boston.
"I can't really pinpoint or sit here and say what exactly is wrong," Anthony said. "The one thing we can control as a team and as players is our confidence. It seems like guys are not playing with confidence. That was just what I saw the past couple of weeks being able to sit back and watch and see what's going on kind of from a spectator's view."
The Knicks started the game 0-of-10 from the field while watching the Bucks build a 14-0 lead. However, New York scored the next nine points.
