|I got busy at work so this is coming out 2 days late, which means I have to include the Houston game instead of it being a 3-0 week. A 3-1 week is still way more fun than last weeks 0-3 week. Maybe I won’t have a meltdown halfway through the rankings this time.
||Last weeks Rank
||Porzingis averaged 33 and 9 in the three wins and 19 and 5 in the loss. Porzingis has now scored over 30 in 5 of 7 games this season. Would like to see him average more than 1 assist a game, but everything else about his game looks pretty great right now.
||Really hoping Kanter can improve on defense. He’s so efficient on offense every night. If he plays over 24 minutes you can pretty much lock in a double double.
||Speaking of consistency, Lee doesn’t light up the box score but he knows his roll. He defends, shoots a good % and does what he’s supposed to do. One of the best signings the Knicks have made in the last 10 years. Of course that’s not saying much.
||O’Quinn has been so good Knicks fans aren’t even grumbling that much about not seeing fan favorite Hernangomez on the floor. One of the best deals in the NBA.
||Frank finally got healthy enough to play and the team ripped off 3 wins in a row. His defense is already way above average and he’s had some really nice passes. Not much of a scoring threat but I’d rather defense and passing. We tried a scoring PG with Rose and it didn’t work.
||Jack gets a huge bump for bringing league average talent to the PG position. It doesn’t sound like a complement but the Knicks haven’t had that in years and the difference was immediately noticable.
||McDermott has been better than advertised so far. His defense isn’t great but hasn’t been the train wreck we were expecting.
||Hardaway Jr., Tim
||Two good games this week. And those games were really good. Still going to have to do that more than once or twice a week to be worth that contract. I feel like the inconsistency is going to be absolutely maddening.
||Seeing minutes for Dotson way earlier than I thought we would. He’s looked pretty decent so far in limited playing time.
||Willy looks like he hasn’t improved at all on defense which is probably why he can’t get minutes over O’Quinn.
||I’m beginning to see why so many teams passed on Beasley.
||Baker really got injured at the wrong time. I wonder if there will be any minutes left for him when he comes back.
||I almost forgot Lance was on the team. He has two more years after this one on his contract because Knicks.
||The team looked so much better when Sessions got benched. Not a good sign for Ramon.
||Pretty sure Kuz will be wearing a suit for 4 more games and then will get cut.
||4 more games and then Noah will take minutes from a more deserving player.
