Yikes. This is a tough one. In two games since the last player of the week post, the Knicks gave in to the superior Lakers and suffered a public emasculation of biblical proportions against the Mavericks. Though he might not have been the best performer of the week, I'm gonna pick Jordan Hill as this week's lone bright spot. The big fella is finally starting to get some minutes in Mike D'Antoni's short rotation.
In 11 minutes against the Lakers, Hill was all over the offensive glass, dropping 8 points and 7 boards, and going toe-to-toe ably with Pau Gasol.
In 14 minutes against the Mavericks, Jordan was just about the only Knick to shoot decently, scoring 6 points on 3-5 shooting.
It was a bad week for the team, but Jordan Hill finally got some burn. Hopefully, there's more to come.
