Jericho Sims is doing some really good stuff. Even on that PnR with Burks just now, he rolled hard and to the right spot, enough to open up the driving lane for a Burks layup. Also, he’s jumped 8+ feet like 7 times already. – 7:59 PM

7:33 in and this lineup held its own – tied 19-19 with the Hawks. They haven’t slowed Trae, but who would? – 7:50 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
For all the talk of “Will Alec Burks or Immanuel Quickley by the Knicks point guard tonight?!” the real answer is Julius Randle. – 7:50 PM

“It’s just depends. Some nights it catches up with you. Some nights you play better on the second night than you did the first.”
