|Another 3-1 week with the only loss coming in a game that Porzingis (get well VERY soon) missed. The Knicks also came back from double digits to win in back to back games for the first time in franchise history, which is a lot more fun than the fake comebacks we saw in previous years.
||Last weeks Rank
||Against the Pacers Porzingis had 40 points on 24 shot attempts with 8 rebounds and 6 blocks. A stat line Melo wouldn’t have even in the wettest of dreams.
||Kanter looks like he’s improving on defense. He’s got a long way to go but he looks like he’s putting in effort and getting some stops. Very good news for the Knicks.
||Hardaway Jr., Tim
||With Porzingis out Timmy stepped up with a nice 26 and 11 game. He’s been very inconsistent with his shot but at least he’s contributing in other ways. He’s more than doubling his average in assists, rebounds, and steals than he did his first time with the Knicks.
||Over the last 3 games Frank is averaging 8 assists per game while playing some of the best defense on the team. He’s only 19. Be excited.
||I think it’s fair to say KOQ has one of the best contracts in the league.
||McDermott felt like a throw in with the Melo trade, but he’s now a key part of the Knicks bench.
||Lee hasn’t been bad this week, but a number of his teammates have played better.
||Lance had a +/- of +58 in over the last 4 games. Impressive but not quite ready for a Lance apology episode yet.
||Just goes to show how this team is playing right now. Jack had a decent week and is still ranked 9th.
||I think we’ll see more Dotson when coach realizes that the Beasley experiment isn’t working.
||With Porzingis out it was time for Beasley to step up and show what he’s got. Except that didn’t happen.
||I was pretty high on Baker a few weeks ago and now I can’t see where he gets minutes.
||In the limited time we’ve seen Willy it looks like he does the same things as O’Quinn only worse.
||At this point Ramon’s official position is injury insurance.
||The Knicks are looking to trade Kuz. Probably should have started that process a few games ago. Everyone knows he’s getting waived by the end of the weekend to make room for Noah.
||I mentioned above KOQ might have the best contract in the league. If you don’t count Chandler Parsons the Knicks might have the best and the worst contract on their roster.
