Julius Randle is the tone-setter of the New York Knicks. No matter how Brunson is performing, it’s Randle’s consistency and aggressiveness that tells the story of the Knicks’ results.
Starting the game pretty poorly at 2/7 from the field set the Knicks back, but Randle showed an incredible recovery from such a poor start. Finishing 6/10 from the floor and 9/9 from the free throw line, the Knicks faithful are not used to this, as a bad start from Randle usually spells doom for his performance for the rest of the game.
Finishing with 26 points and eight rebounds on 60.7 TS%, hopefully a better start from Randle on Christmas Day.
