We're going to the Finals! Wondering why RJ Barrett played 39 mintues though in a preseason game.
Impressive debut. Not flawless though. 17 points, 7 rebounds, 3 assists on 6-13 shooting. It was really a tale of two halves for him. Started off 1-6. Primarily a floor spacer in the first half for whatever reason. Had 14 points in the second half and showed that he has some NBA level moves and can drive and finish with contact. Knocked down a couple 3's. He took over in the second half.
|RJ Barrett with Elfrid Payton: 3 points on 1-5 from field, 0-3 from three, 1 assist
RJ Barrett with Frank Ntilikina: 14 points on 5-8 from field, 2-3 from three, 2 assists
Biggest stat. Team high +16. He makes our team just play better defensively when he defends at the point of attack. He shot 3-10 from the field. Still not gonna cut it on the offensive end. He just needs to find a way to knock down another shot or two.
Early ejection from bouncing the ball off defenders head. Kinda funny if you ask me. Team high 17 points. 6-12, 3-4 from 3, 7 rebounds, 2 assists. Played a good game. He also looks to be playing more of the 3 this year than the 4.
: He played an overall good game offensively. Defensively he's going to have to be hidden around Mitch or Morris. 11 points, 7 rebounds, and 7 assists. His passing is much better than I remembered.
: Typical game from him. Scrappy on the boards, 4 blocks with a few dunks.
: Appears to be stronger and in better shape this year. Had some good plays. Had some bad plays. Inconsistent game from him. Would have been an overall good game from him if you take out the 4th. His 4th quarter was bad.
Overall this should be a FUN year for the Knicks in a LONG, LONG time.
