The New York Knicks had a rough Tuesday night against our Milwaukee Bucks.
First, the team lost its all-star unicorn, center Kristaps Porzingis, for the season to a brutal ACL tear that looked like bad news from the second it happened. Then, to make matters worse, later in the game, Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo dunked Tim Hardaway Jr.'s soul of out of his god damn body on a fast break ally-oop from Khris Middleton in the third quarter.
Hardaway Jr. also left the game early in the fourth quarter with a broken dignity but mainly a left leg injury. Because that's what happens when you no longer have a soul because a rival player dunked it out of you.
Even John McEnroe was rendered speechless.
After all of that, the Knicks unsurprisingly fell to the Bucks, 103-89, because when the basketball gods have it out for you, they show no mercy – much like the Bucks' very own Greek god on the fast break.
The Bucks are now 30-23, making the team now 7-1 under interim head coach Joe Prunty and putting them a half-game out of the three seed in the Eastern Conference and seven games over .500 for the first time since February of 2015. Their next game is on the road Friday night at Miami against the Heat.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
