3. Knox outplays Giannis

Yeah, I know this may seem a little bit too much, but then again, it is Christmas, and Kevin Knox did record 26 points, four rebounds and four assists the last time he played Milwaukee.

Since the start of the season, Giannis has had four games in which he scored under 20 points. Three of those four games have happened since the start of December, so you could make a case that he is having a below-average past couple of weeks.

On the other hand is Knox. Even though he is not as legendary as his NBA Summer League numbers would suggest, Knox has been great for the New York Knicks so far.

Being the complete opposite to Giannis, December seems to suit Knox perfectly. He is averaging 16.6 points along with 6.1 rebounds per game, paired with a 37.9 percent conversion rate from behind the arc.

Remind you of a young Giannis going up against an established superstar in Carmelo Anthony? This could be a big duel in a big city on the biggest night of the year.
