This has been a growing year for Kevin Knox. Literally. Knicks coach David Fizdale said Knox sometimes has sore knees because the 19-year-old is experiencing growing pains. Knox confirmed doctors have told the 6-foot-9 rookie forward some good news. “Doctors said I have a half-inch or an inch left in the tank,” Knox said following Sunday’s practice at the NIKE campus ahead of their Monday battle with the Blazers. “You never know — hopefully I have an inch [left]. Maybe 6-10, 6-10½. If not, I’m perfectly fine with where I’m at.”
Such as averaging 20.3 points over his last seven games, starting with a 26-point, 15-rebound performance against Charlotte on Dec. 9, when the 19-year-old Knox joined LeBron James as the only teenagers with 25 points and 15 rebounds. Knox said the key to his surge has been not settling for jumpers, instead using his 6-foot-9 frame to get inside. “The game is really kind of slowing down for me and that’s a really good thing,” Knox said, “because at the beginning of the year I was going 100 mph with everything I was doing, just running up and down the court as most young dudes are. They come in the league just trying to run and just do what they want, but once the game started to slow down for me I’ve been able to make the right reads.”
