But even with Dennis Smith Jr. taking the floor for his first game action Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden, Frank Ntilikina expected back from a day off of practice with a sore groin and newcomer Elfrid Payton, Fizdale threw in the possibility of a wild card taking the job this season. Asked about the possibility of putting the ball in the hands of his 6-7 rookie, RJ Barrett, Fizdale was happy to add him to the mix.
Ntilikina took a step back, two crossover dribbles forward to build momentum, and then went straight downhill, not stopping until he finished for a layup and took a foul. It was the kind of play Ntilikina has rarely made in his two seasons in the NBA and something he was intent on doing when he saw Chiozza on him. “I’m trying to make the right play, and now I’m seeing that being aggressive for myself sometimes is the right play,” Ntilikina said. “I’m just playing and getting a feel for the game.”
