|A 2-1 week that should have been a 3-0 week. If you told me the Knicks would be ahead of the Cavs in the standings 14 games into the season and LeBron was healthy I would have asked you to share whatever drug you were on. Oh and farewell to Kuz. We hardly knew ye.
||Last weeks Rank
||Porzingis efficiency was down a good amount this week. I hope it doesn’t have to do with his elbow as that probably won’t get better any time soon. The good news is that even with lower efficiency KP still averaged 25 and 7.
||Lee had a great week, especially agains the Kings. He’s been an underrated part of the Knicks success.
||Hardaway Jr., Tim
||Hardaway had monster games against the Cavs and Jazz, which makes up for the turd he layed against the Kings. He’s showing some good signs like improved defense and passing. If he can get his consistency up he’ll be worth his contract.
||Not only did Frank have 6 steals against the Cavs, he stood up to LeBron. He’s going to be really good. Dennis Smith Jr. who?
||Kanter can score and he can rebound. What he can’t seem to do is defend and that was exposed against the Cavs and Jazz. Still, he’s an emotional presence. Standing up for Frank like he did in the Cavs game is important.
||Jack averaged over 5 assists per game this week. I’ll take it.
||No one on the bench really stood out this week. Doug was the only one to have a positive +/- in all 3 games.
||Quiet week from KOQ. Not terrible, but not as good as the last few weeks.
||I’m glad I didn’t bow down to the pressure and issue a Lance apology.
||Dotson looked really good against the Kings and then played 1 minute over the next 2 games.
||Has the Beasley experiment come to an end already?
||Coach said he’s bringing back Noah slowly. Zero minutes over the first two games is an excellent pace if you ask me.
||Now that Noah is back I think the only way Willy is getting on the court is if he leaves hundreds of marbles in the locker room in the hopes of multiple sprained ankles.
||Baker is out of the rotation. At least we’re paying him twice market value!
||I remember really wanting Sessions on the team. That was about 7 years ago but still.
