Knox totaled 25 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-12 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and a steal across 24 minutes in the Knicks' win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday. Knox did a little bit of everything in the win, including lead his team in scoring. He's put together a strong string of games in the LVSL so far, averaging 18.5 points per game on 50 percent shooting in his last two contests. Knox will need to improve on last season's shooting percentage (37 percent) to score more than the 12.8 points per game he averaged as a rookie.
Knox finished with 12 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes during the Knicks' 105-100 overtime loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Sunday. Knox had put together a solid 17-point, eight-rebound effort to open summer league play, so Sunday's tally represented a slight downturn. However, the fact the 2018 first-round pick should see plenty of minutes in Las Vegas should only help him build on the improvement he displayed during the latter part of his rookie season, one he finished with 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 28.8 minutes (75 games).
Knox tallied 17 points (5-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, and two assists in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 96-86 victory over Chicago. Knox had his first double-double in over six weeks Tuesday, finishing with 17 points and 10 rebounds in the victory over the Bulls. Efficiency was an issue once again and has basically been the sticking point when looking at his rookie season. He also struggles to put up numbers outside of points and three's, leaving him as more of a fringe standard league player.
Knox finished with 21 points (7-13 FGKnox continued his strong play to end the season, topping double digits for the eight time in his past 10 games. After suffering through growing pains at the beginning of the season, the rookie forward has managed to shoot above 40-percent from the field for the past month, upping his season-long field goal percentage to 37.0. While he continues to post largely empty lines asided from scoring, Knox has secured a large enough workload to nearly guarantee above-average scoring production on a regular basis.
Knox put up 19 points (6-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 40 minutes Monday in the Knicks' 113-105 win over the Bulls. Knox has received exactly 40 minutes in back-to-back contests, which suggests the Knicks don't have much concern about his health after a recent bout with a minor ankle injury. With New York already having seemingly shut down several veterans for the season, Knox should benefit from robust playing time over the final five games. That alone should be enough for him to deliver quality point totals, though his lagging across-the-board production and poor shooting don't make him a fit for every season-long roster.
