MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Derrick Williams scored 24 points, 20-year-old Kristaps Porzingis had 16 in his NBA debut, and the New York Knicks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 122-97 on Wednesday night in the season opener for each team.

Williams got easy looks under the basket to help New York open a 12-point halftime lead. He started the fourth quarter with a dunk off an alley-oop pass from rookie Jerian Grant that made it 92-73.

Greg Monroe led the Bucks with 22 points and 14 rebounds.
