Mayo (22) and Melo (25) top scored for their respective teams.
Milwaukee Bucks 92 - 76 New York Knicks
O.J. Mayo with his fourth three pointer may just have sealed the win and put to bed any Knicks comeback.
Hold on a second...
Knicks staging some form of a comeback. Down 89 - 76 with 4.17 remaining. Will the Bucks regret giving their bench a run out this last quarter? Stranger things have happened (probably),
His Milwaukee Bucks may be well on their way to a win (85-71 up with 6 to play) but head coach Jason Kidd has just been surpassed in the record brooks.
9 minutes remaining in Fourth Quarter -
Bucks 84 - 64 Knicks
The Bucks have led for the entirety of this game and it doesn't look like changing in the final nine minutes. Melo is on the bench and the Bucks look in control.
End of Third Quarter: Milwaukee Bucks 82 - 56 New York Knicks
The Knicks are shooting 18/51 field goals and 5/16 from three point range. Put these stats together and you have got a 16 game losing streak.
The Bucks have struggled in efficiency tonight too but the likes of Mayo (7/9 FG and 3/4 3PT, 19 points) and Knight are looking good.
Milwaukee Bucks 77 - 52 New York Knicks
Time out with 3.31 to play in 3rd quarter and the final five seconds sum up the Knicks' woes. Meandering in search of someone open to shoot a three Knight steals the ball, lays it up to The Greek Freek who obliges and slams in the dunk to the delight of the crowd.
7 to go in 3rd quarter and it is now just a 17 point game (that is a success for New York). Carmelo Anthony has 22 points, he may get some stick from some Knicks fans but imagine if he was still out injured tonight!
Second half under way and you guessed it, the Milwaukee Bucks are first to score in the third quarter
Milwaukee Bucks 62 - 37 New York Knicks
End of Second Quarter: Milwaukee Bucks 56 - 37 New York Knicks
That brings the first half of the game to a close and it has been one way traffic. The Bucks jumped to a big early lead and haven't let it slip since. Anthony may currently top score with 17 points but it is the likes of Mayo and Antetokoumpo who are putting on a show.
Away from the on court action, some big names in attendance at the o2 tonight.
5.50 remaining Second Quarter:
Milwaukee Bucks up by more than 20. (46-25)
The crowd is a little subdued with such a big gap in the scoreline. Melo looking rusty but he and his teammates have to respond soon before this game gets away from them - if it isn't already.
- INJURY - Milwaukee Bucks no 5 Kendall Marshall heads to the locker room
Half way through second quarter and the Bucks are up 38-17. Knicks struggling to get within touching distance.
technical foul called on New York coach Derek Fisher - at least he is trying to get involved unlike some of his team.
End of first quarter: Milwaukee Bucks 31 - 13 New York Knicks
The Knicks took SIX MINUTES to get score as the Bucks caught them cold. Bucks led 18-0 at one point.
The Greek Freek top scores at the minute with 9 points with O.J. Mayo just behind on 8 with a couple of corner threes to his name.
Milwaukee Bucks 28 - 11 New York Knicks
Time out for New York who, after making a slight impact on the Bucks' lead, have seen the likes of O.J. Mayo open it right back up.
Milwaukee Bucks 14 - 4 New York Knicks
STOP THE PRESS. The Knicks have scored some points. Hardaway Jnr gets 2 and the foul but misses the free throw. Carmelo Anthony grabs 2 from the FT line soon after.
Can the Knicks blame jet lag!? 0-12 down to the Bucks with 8.17 left in 1st quarter. Giannis Antetokounmpo already with 7 points
We are off in London with both teams, and a vocal crowd, pumped up for the game...and the Bucks jump to a 6-0 lead with The GREEK FREAK dunking all over Melo.
Safe to say Carmelo Anthony is a hit in London.
Here are your line ups with tip off coming soon...
