Where will Mitchell Robinson help the Knicks the most in the postseason?

Mitchell Robinson will be instrumental in helping the Knicks stymie the Bucks’ interior attack with Giannis Antetokounmpo, who leads the league with 20.3 points per game, as well as the Miami Heat front that thrives on close-range opportunities and has stars in Bam Adebayo and Jimmy Butler who excel at grabbing rebounds on both ends and converting them into offensive opportunities.

Robinson spoke about how he felt after the game and expressed no discomfort with his sprained left ankle or surgically repaired right ankle, saying that he thought he “played a solid game,” according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Post.

With nine games left on the regular season schedule, Robinson can help the Knicks (44-29) eclipse the Cleveland Cavaliers (45-29) and even overtake the Milwaukee Bucks (47-27) for the No. 2 seed in the ‘East.

In the playoffs, the former second-round pick will be huge both coming off the bench and back into the starting lineup. His track record in the playoffs isn’t the best telltale sign of how he’ll perform this time around, as he took a major step as a contributor and a step back in the health department this year. As long as he can generate additional opportunities for the Knicks and protect the rim at a high level, New York will have a great chance to make a deep postseason run.
