Not only did John Henson return to the lineup after missing time with an injury, he was a force in the Milwaukee Bucks 99-92 victory over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Friday night.
Henson had 22 points, five rebounds and three blocks in his return after missing four games with a sore left Achilles. Giannis Antetokounmpo added 20 points and seven rebounds while holding New York’s Carmelo Anthony to 17 points on 6 of 16 shooting.
Henson hit eight of 12 field goals and six of seven free throws.
The Bucks went on an eleven-to-two run in the fourth quarter and Henson scored seven points during that stretch.
The Bucks lost the season opener to the Knicks 122-97 just over a week ago as the Knicks bench outscored the Bucks bench 73-32 on that night. Last night, the Bucks bench outscored the Knicks bench 48-47.
The Bucks are back home tonight to host the Brooklyn Nets at the Bradley Center.
