For the first time since 1977, Milwaukee sports fans will get a dash of basketball with their newly-opened jerseys on Christmas.

The Bucks will travel to face the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Dec. 25, one of five games on the day that serves as the NBA's marquee regular-season showcase.A The game will be televised on ESPN.
