|The Knicks are 9-8 but it feels like they’re 4-13. They barely beat the 1-14 Rockets. Lately when they win it feels like an absolute struggle. They better get it together soon because it feels like this could get ugly fast.
||Last Weeks Rank
||You can count on Rose to show up every night. He hasn’t been great every night but hasn’t had a terrible game all season and he’s been healthy. It’s great that he’s playing like this but not a good sign that he’s in the #1 spot.
||Burks snapped out of his shooting slump and led the bench mob in a number of games, including a podcast saving win over the Rockets this weekend.
||Toppin outplayed Randle for a few times over the last two weeks. Great to see him improved so much since last season where he looked unplayable a lot of the time.
|| Immanuel, Quickley
||Quickley also came out of his shooting slump. The bench was the only reason the Knicks won any games over the last two weeks and IQ was a huge part of that.
||Randle was downright bad a number of times recently. The Bulls game being the first time we’ve seen the Randle of last season in what feels like a very long time. Is it in his head? I have a hard time believing all of last season was a fluke.
||Somehow Mitch has been injured 37 times in only 17 games.
||Fourniers only good game this week was the day after I dropped him from my fantasy team. He went back to his disappearing act against the Bulls.
||Holy crap what’s going on with Barrett? He looks completely lost and his shot is nowhere to be found.
||Even when Kemba puts up good numbers you look at the plus minus and he’s a minus.
|| Noel, Nerlens
||Noel came back from his 12th injury this season and…..let’s say there’s some rust to work off.
|| Gibson, Taj
||Considering the Knicks centers are made of glass and teflon I’m glad Taj is always there for insurance.
||I have a feeling there’s going to be a game this season where he’s the only healthy center.
|| Grimes, Quentin
||If Kemba keeps playing like this we might see Grimes sooner than later
||McBride tore up the G league last week
