The New York Knicks dropped their third consecutive game of the Las Vegas Summer League campaign, falling to the Toronto Raptors by the score of . The Raptors are world champions ... but these weren’t those guys ... but these guys were still way better than anyone the Knicks threw out there.
Toronto’s boys of summer fell behind in the first quarter, but stormed back in a massive way as the Knicks couldn’t buy a bucket in the second and third quarters. The ‘Bockers played a bit better in the fourth quarter — particularly RJ Barrett — but the game was already well out of hand by then.
RJ had undoubtedly his best game of Summer League, with 17 points on 6-14 shooting, 10 rebounds six assists, one turnover and two blocks. Many of those buckets came after the game had been decided, but the passing was there all evening.
Ok I wasn't gonna clip any more of this game in protest but this was a nice cut by Iggy and pass by RJ pic.twitter.com/3pTsVdFG3O— Posting and Toasting (@ptknicksblog) July 10, 2019
Great drive & finish by RJ going to his right pic.twitter.com/vzm3uAsgG4— The Knicks Wall (@TheKnicksWall) July 10, 2019
Mitchell Robinson put up some nice numbers (13 points, 14 rebounds), but he looks to be a bit bored on defense, chasing blocks far too often. He can still do crazy stuff around the rim, though.
Kevin Knox couldn’t buy a bucket (3-15 shooting), but managed 15 points thanks to an 8-11 performance at the free-throw line.
Overall, the defense sucked.
Alex will have the recap tomorrow morning. Stay cool, buckaroos.
