Kevin Knox isn’t having the year many had hoped for, but until he went through a small slump that led to a bench, he gave the Knicks good backup minutes. Chances are, whether it’s due to injury or others not playing well, Knox will eventually end up in the rotation again.
It didn’t look like Ntilikina would see the court again, and here we are. Knox is also due, especially given the one skill the Knicks know he is bringing to the field: shooting. His three catch-and-shoot knockdowns and winger size should both be invaluable to Tom Thibodeau in this second half.
