Joakim Noah helped spark a New York Knicks comeback against the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
With just under 5 minutes to go in the 4th quarter, and the Knicks facing a 107-103 deficit, Noah put matters into his own hands. After working a pick-n-roll with Ron Baker, Noah headed towards the rim with a full head of steam, while Giannis Antetokounmpo tried to rotate over and deliver a block for the Bucks at the rim. Unfortunately for the Greek Freak, he would find himself on Noah’s latest poster with the Knicks’ centre throwing down a two-handed jam.
It was some sweet revenge after Antetokounmpo hit a game-winner over the Knicks just a couple nights ago in Madison Square Garden.

Noah’s dunk would help the Knicks also get a win of their own, and snap a 6-game losing streak, as they finished the game on a 13-4 run to come away with a 116-111 victory. They received a solid performance from Noah, who finished with 8 points on 4-6 FG, to go along with 9 rebounds in 20 minutes of action.
The Knicks improved their record to 17-19 with the win, which is only good enough for the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference. They’ll look to continue winning when they take on the Indiana Pacers tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST.
