Kevin Knox goes for 31 in career night for the Knicks

One night after former Cat Karl-Anthony Towns had one of the best stat lines in the NBA in the last 40 years with 27 points and 27 rebounds, fellow former Cat Kevin Knox put on a show of his own. The Knicks went down early, losing by 16 at the half, and the deficit was as high as 24 at times during the second quarter. However, New York battled back against Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and the rest of the 76ers. Knox had a huge night and was instrumental in the come back effort that eventually fell short as the Knicks lost to Philadelphia by the score of 108-105.

Knox finished the night with a career-high 31 points, 7 rebounds, and 2 steals in a career-high 44 minutes. The rookie even took a page out of James Harden’s book with his patented double step-back three.

Knox has been tearing it up since the beginning of December for the Knicks, averaging 16.8 points, 5.4 rebounds, and shooting over 37% from three-point land. The Knicks have been struggling as a team, going just 3-17 since the start of December, but the future does look bright for rookie Kevin Knox. Tonight’s performance puts Knox on a list with some heralded company.

Check out Knox’s full highlights from today’s game below:

    A few big free agents and the Knicks are a playoff team next season. Going to be fun watching Knox shine in the playoffs!

    I’m glad Knox is doing well. He seems like a good kid and the New Yorkies can eat their words.
