    Randle missed a late FT.

    Did RJ play?
    The funny thing about the Halliburton vs Toppin comparison is that if you go to per 36 minute stats, Halliburton is averaging 14.7 points per game and Toppin is averaging 14.5 points per game. Halliburton’s biggest accomplishment on the rookie front is getting more minutes per game. He’s not really done a ton with those minutes.

    For comparison, Quickley’s per 36 minute scoring is 22.3 points per game.

    All the Knicks hate from the media for passing on Halliburton. Where’s all the hate to the rest of the NBA and all these genius draft analysts for not knowing about Quickley?

    I hear you. I’ve watched 7 SAC games and have seen almost every minute Obi has been on the floor.... While OBI barely makes a ripple while on the floor, Halliburton has impacted winning.

    He’s not dominating or taking over games.
    Thinking M Bridges in PhO. Just a solid piece, perhaps even a starter, on a winning team.

    Against Knicks, when second unit came in, he stabilized his unit and prevented our second unit from going on a run in the first half. He helped hold serve and protected lead the starters amassed. Then, at end of game, he made 3-4 crucial plays that put the nail in our coffin.

    He makes smart decisions, plays within himself, and isn’t a liability when shots aren’t failing. Toppin might get numbers if given his minutes, but it would be a sloppy, inefficient production with a negative plus-minus.

    Bottom line: Halliburton looks comfortable on the floor, while Obi looks lost. Not what you expected from the most NBA ready prospect.
    Doesn’t he turn 24 soon?


    IQ is clearly the steal of the draft. Knicks might be on yo something... if you build from scratch, you need to hit a late first and a second... we got MRob, IQ... boom!

    We get RJ... boom.

    Now we just need that generAtional talent and a supporting 1B star. Then we are open for biz
