Knicks Take Down Warriors in West Coast Swing
The Knicks are starting to gain some momentum as they defeated the Golden State Warriors last night 119-104 to with their third straight game.
RJ Barrett has a career high 28 points. Mitchell Robinson put in 18 and Julius Randall was one assist shy of a triple double.
The knicks welcomed the return of Alec Burks (11 points) who will help them with long range shots behind the arc.
The New York Knicks have had a roller coaster beginning with both winning and losing streaks in their first 16 games that has put them at an even 8-8 in the eastern conference.
The Knicks have had a difficult schedule to start the season but have managed to beat some very good teams.
The chemistry that is starting to develop between this young team has been exciting and fun to watch.
When you watch a team and start to see all the tangibles, they bring both individually and team play you can almost feel the quality increase from game to game.
It is the start of a very young season and a lot can still happen, but if you’re a Knick fan you have to love the play of Mitchel Robinson, who’s vibrant slam dunks, alley oops and rejections can bring you right out of your recliner.
Julius Randle is a proven leader, and continues to be the glue of this team.
RJ Barrett who continues to improve with every game, and the rookie Immanuel Quickley with his drives to the basket, ability to draw fouls, and some good shots behind the three point line.
Kevin Knox has become a threat behind the arc, his minutes have been down but he is a quality bench player that they can call on.
Obi Toppin continues to improve and watching him continue to grow in his first year is exciting.
The Knicks continue their West Coast swing with games at Sacramento, Portland and Utah.
It’s been a while since we have had even a 500 team so enjoy it and hope it gets better.
