BBNBA: Knox Drops 27 Points in Career-High 46 Minutes

Good afternoon, folks. The Knicks are clearly tanking which means ALL THE MINUTES for Kevin Knox. Let’s talk NBA.

RECAP

  • The New York Knicks were obliterated by the playoff-bound Utah Jazz, 137-116, but that didn’t prevent Kevin Knox from having his best game in months. The former Kentucky forward went off for 27 points on an efficient 10-17 shooting – including 3-6 from deep – to go along with eight rebounds and three assists in over 46 minutes, a career-high for him. His 27 points were the most he’s registered since he poured in 31 points against the 76ers back on Jan. 13. He sat out this game for only 1:14 in the late first quarter and didn’t get another rest for the remainder of the game.

  • The next best performer from Wednesday night was Eric Bledsoe, who’s Milwaukee Bucks (sans Giannis Antetokounmpo) fell to the Cavaliers in Cleveland. Bledsoe finished with 24 points on 7-19 shooting in addition to eight rebounds, eight assists, and two steals. On the other side of the ball, Brandon Knight contributed 13 points on 5-12 shooting to go along with four assists for the Cavs.
  • Enes Kanter posted a 14-point, 10-rebound double-double against the Mavericks in a mere 20 minutes. He also dished out four dimes in the process.
  • Bam Adeabyo scored only six points for the Miami Heat in a massive team win over the red-hot San Antonio Spurs, but he made up for it elsewhere. Adebayo hauled in 15 rebounds – his third-most this season – while also recording five assists and two steals.

Other notes

  • Anthony Davis was absent from the team in the New Orleans Pelicans blowout loss to the Orlando Magic for personal reasons with the team Twitter account citing “a family matter” as the cause. Julius Randle shot 1-9 from the field for only six points while Darius Miller wasn’t any better, going 3-10 from the field for seven points.
