Smith finished second in Saturday night's Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend in Charlotte.
It was the second straight runner-up finish for Smith, who came up short against Donovan Mitchell in 2018 and Hamidou Diallo on Saturday. Smith tallied a first-round score of 95 to advance to the finals, where he put up a 35 on his first dunk and a 50 on his final effort of the night. In the end, it wasn't quite enough to eclipse Diallo, who amassed 88 points in the final round.
Smith totaled 19 points (7-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-8 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and a steal across 32 minutes in the Knicks' win over the Hawks on Thursday.
After putting up a dud in his Knicks' debut on Feb. 3, Smith has found his groove in the Big Apple, averaging 18.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per game over his last six contests. With no real playmakers on the team, Smith will be the focal point of the offense for the rest of the season.
Smith scored 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and collected two rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three steals over 31 minutes Monday against Cleveland.
Smith finished with 10 or more points for the fourth straight contest, and he surprisingly swatted a pair of shots in a 107-104 loss on the road. The 21-year-old point guard is putting up 17.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.8 steals over his previous five games, so although his scoring output isn't typically overly impressive, his contributions across the board add certain value for fantasy owners.
Smith put up 13 points (4-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six assists, four rebounds and three steals in 30 minutes Saturday in the Knicks' 104-99 loss to the Raptors.
After erupting for a career-high 31 points in the front end of the back-to-back set Friday in Detroit, regression hit Smith hard Saturday. Efficiency will likely remain somewhat of an issue for the second-year point guard the rest of the season, but he'll undoubtedly improve on his current 2018-19 averages of 13.6 points and 4.6 assists with his usage on a major upswing since he arrived in New York.
Smith erupted for 31 points (9-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 11-19 FT), two rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 35 minutes Friday against Detroit.
Smith went off in just his third game with his new team, knocking down 60.0 percent of his shots while distributing the basketball with ease. He also attempted 19 shots from the charity stripe on the night. Despite his best efforts, New York would fall 120-103 in Detroit. While Smith has been unable to lead the Knicks to victory just yet, he's scored 25 or more points in two of his first three matchups.
