Kornet scored 23 points (7-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-8 FT) and totaled five rebounds along with five assists and a steal across 34 minutes Sunday against the 76ers.
Kornet erupted for his best performance of the new year, sinking a respectable 37.5 percent of his shots from beyond the arc and posting a 53.8 percent success rate from the field. He came off the bench for the first time since Christmas day, but it appears a role change was just what he needed to get over his recent slump. Lance Thomas picked up the start Sunday in Kornet's place, although it seems unlikely that this change is permanent.
Though he remains the Knicks' starting center, Kornet hasn't played more than 21 minutes in any of the team's last three games. Blowouts in two of those contests might have artificially deflated Kornet's playing time, but the Vanderbilt product hasn't performed especially well on a per-minute basis in those contests to warrant added run. Meanwhile, backup center Enes Kanter has awoken from his statistical slumber to post four consecutive double-doubles, which further damages Kornet's chances of reclaiming minutes. With Mitchell Robinson (ankle/groin) also likely to rejoin the center mix in the near future and New York set to play just one game next week, Kornet is a viable drop candidate in most leagues where he was recently scooped up.
Kornet contributed 19 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one block in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 115-108 loss to the Nuggets.
Kornet topped the team in scoring for the second time in the last three games. He has combined to score 56 points (on 19-of-37 from the field) while draining 15 three-pointers across 90 minutes during these last three contests. Meanwhile, Enes Kanter (back) came off the bench and finished with 17 points and 12 boards in 20 minutes to redeem himself after going scoreless in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, and Mitchell Robinson (ankle) is nearing his return. It's unclear how long Kornet will be able to keep this up, or if his minutes will remain plentiful once Robinson is healthy. Nevertheless, Kornet has been impressive lately and at the very least makes for an interesting speculative add in most leagues.
Kornet accumulated 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's 129-97 loss to the Jazz.
Kornet drew his second straight start and delivered another quality stat line. Meanwhile, Enes Kanter earned less than 20 minutes for the second straight game. Kornet's ability to stretch the floor gives him at least one advantage in the competition for minutes at center, and the sophomore has played well these last two tilts. It's unclear how long it will last, but Kornet is certainly worth keeping an eye on going forward.
Kornet scored 23 points (8-17 FG, 7-11 3Pt) and added five assists, three rebounds and a block in 33 minutes Thursday against the Bucks.
Kornet played his best game of the season, starting over Enes Kanter and tying a career-best with 23 points. The spot start appeared to be primarily due to matchup purposes, so it's unlikely that Kornet will consistently produce at this rate, although with more solid outings he may be able to expand his role for the Knicks. In 13 games this year, the second-year center is averaging 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds in 8.8 minutes per game.
