Knicks beat Blazers in matinee game

The New York Knicks capitalized on the fatigue shown by the Portland Trail Blazers getting the win, 110-99, in a matinee meeting at the Madison Square Garden Saturday. Elfrid Payton dropped a team-high 22 points. Julius Randle got 20 points plus 11 rebounds. RJ Barrett had 18 points and Alec Burks had 16 points in a balanced offensive effort paired with effective defense in long stretches of the 2020-21 NBA Regular Season tilt.
One individual familiar with the coaching staff’s thinking said Thibodeau still senses Bullock, Toppin and Burks provide “more energy” than Knox has recently, though no data exists to back that up. One of Knox’s issues coming out of Kentucky was a low motor, but he had competed harder this season. Thibodeau recently commended Knox’s shot selection – feeling last season he launched a lot of ill-advised attempts. For his part, Knox said recently he needed to attack the rim more and not rely solely on 3s.
