Knicks, record of RJ Barrett against OKC

Tom Thibodeau’s team recovered from Thursday’s defeat in Milwaukee with a redemptive 119-97 win over the weakened Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena for their 20th win of the season (20-19). Their winning tally represents one less win than last season as they finished 21-45 first under David Fizdale and then Mike Miller, now assistant manager of the Thunder.

RJ Barrett set a record of 32 out of 12 out of 21 points for the Knicks, whose next two games are at the Eastern Conference’s two top finishers: the Nets on Monday and the 76ers the next night.
