Masterclass by Josh Hart of the Knicks in the victory against the Sixers

Josh Hart played at a Player of the Month level for the New York Knicks. Against the 76ers, Hart had 20 points, 19 rebounds and ten assists.

Over the last five games, Hart has averaged 15 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. Averaging a double-double this month and two 19-rebound games, Hart is playing well beyond expectations. If one has watched Hart since last summer playing with FIBA, then one has always seen what Hart can do, but translating that effectiveness to the NBA has made Hart an extraordinary player.

The cohesiveness of the New York Knicks has allowed Hart to maximize his abilities in a rotation that leans more heavily on a defensive-based style of play. Hart has been excellent on both ends and is a great example of the player style that Tom Thibodeau proudly relies on.
