Dotson had struggled with his shot prior to Friday's game, as he'd drained just 26.0 percent of his 31 attempts over the prior four contests of summer league play. The 2017 second-round pick's 75.0 percent success rate from the field was easily his best in Las Vegas, and the strong performance certainly gives him impressive momentum heading into training camp.
Dotson registered 13 points (4-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one block across 28 minutes during the Knicks' 91-89 win over the Hawks in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Saturday.
The big man is coming off a rookie campaign in which he averaged 4.1 points and 1.9 rebounds across 10.8 minutes over 44 games. While he saw modest opportunity, the 2017 second-round pick did gain some valuable experience, which should help him shine in summer league play. He got off to an impressive start in that regard Saturday, even as his shot wasn't at his sharpest. Dotson will look to continue putting together a productive body of work in Las Vegas in anticipation of a potentially larger role in the coming regular season.
Dotson managed 4.1 points, 1.9 rebounds and 0.7 assists over 44 games with New York in 2017-18.
Dotson was an average contributor at best before he exploded for a career high 30 points and 11 rebounds against Miami on Apr. 6. On the final day of the regular season, the 23-year-old added his second career double-double of 11 points and 10 rebounds as well. Dotson will enter the second year of his three-year contract with the Knicks next season.
Dotson collected 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, three steals and two assists across 30 minutes in Saturday's 115-102 loss to the Bucks.
After posting a monster double-double last time out, Dotson cooled a little bit, but he still played a solid 30 minutes Saturday night. He was less aggressive on the offensive end in the contest, taking just eight shots as opposed to 21 the night before. The three steals shows that he is putting in effort on both ends, which could earn him similar minutes as the Knicks close out the season.
Dotson compiled 30 points (12-21 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 35 minutes during Friday's 122-98 victory over Miami.
Dotson was unbelievable Friday, recording career-high numbers in multiple categories. Prior to this game, he had been basically invisible from a fantasy perspective and was even out of the rotation for a few games. Tim Hardaway (ankle) and Michael Beasley (knee) both left this game and if they are forced to miss time, Dotson could be in line for some additional playing time.
