We have 11 games remaining in the regular season, and we have 41 WINS under our belt ..
And sitting comfortable as a 5 seeded team in the East ..
We also got 3 days rest after the 4 game west coast road trip we split ..
Having no Brunson on the court .. We had Randle, Barrett, and Quickley pickup on the scoring ..
And the outstanding energy off the bench Josh Hart brings is our 9 Game Win Streak player ..
Plus Hart's leadership has all the Knicks bench players playing outstanding winning B.ball on both sides of the court.
My big worry are the playoff, plus depending on Randle's bully-ball going against two/three defenders down the stretch of games. And no strategy coach Thibs giving (Randle/Barrett/Brunson) way to many playing-time minutes (27 to 30), before the start of the 4th quarter.
Coach Thibs have made Randle an important piece to our team making Randle the first option on offense the past 3 seasons. Randle has showed he can carry the team for stretches in the first/second/third quarter.
But is Randle the guy that will put us over the top? Probably not.
I think that's Brunson .. or at least, he's the best one we've got.
Or we start playing team-ball like Curry's GS, or Tatum's Celtics, or Giannis Bucks.
The Raptors scored 49 pts in the first quarter on the Denver Nuggets .. We need to do the same on Saturday vs Nuggets.
