The Westchester Knicks split their weekend back-to-back, losing Saturday to the Greensboro Swarm and defeating the Erie BayHawks Sunday afternoon. For the purposes of this article we are going to ignore Saturday’s game and focus on Sunday, a win featuring some nifty point-guarding by Ron Baker — a.k.a. the best thing to come out of Kansas since Superman.
Yung Ron finished with 16 points on 5-8 shooting, 3 steals, 1 block and 8 assists, several of which came off some legitimately sweet dishes. Observe!
Ron did turn the ball over 4 times, but generally he did a fine job of putting his teammates in position to get buckets. Just look at him repeatedly hit W-Knick shooters in the corners — when was the last time a Knicks point guard did that?
Ron hasn’t got many chances to lead the offense, even in Westchester, as most of the time he played with Chasson Randle. He’s obviously not a pure point guard, but he can do some things.
As for the other Knicks on loan, Maurice Ndour struggled from the field (3-10 shooting) while putting up 9 points and 9 rebounds. Marshall Plumlee fared much better, dropping a 15-point, 11-rebound double-double on Erie.
All three players were recalled to the Big Knicks on Monday morning.
