New York Knicks
The team from the Mecca continues to roll having won five of their last seven games. Julius Randle earned a well-deserved All-Star nod from the coaches. Randle picked right back up where he left off prior to the break.
He delivered his second triple-double of the season in the recent victory versus the Oklahoma City Thunder registering 26 points, 12 rebounds, and 12 assists.
RJ Barrett is also having a breakout season averaging 17.9 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.9 assists. Barrett also stood out in the victory versus the Thunder delivering 32 points, five rebounds, three assists, three steals and hit half (3 of 6) of his 3-point shots.
Rookie Immanuel Quickley (21), Alec Burks (15), and Reggie Bullock (14) were the other double-figure contributors.
Elfrid Payton (hamstring) missed the Saturday match but is expected to play Monday. Quickly is nursing a sore groin but listed as probable.
Austin Rivers (personal), and Derrick Rose (health and safety protocols) are listed as day-to-day on the injury report. Mitchell Robinson had surgery on his fractured hand and remains out.
After the All-Star break, the Nets returned to continue their win streak posting wins versus the Celtics and Pistons.
Although Blake Griffin was picked up by the Nets after the Pistons bought him out, he’s yet to play for Brooklyn. Likewise, Kevin Durant remains sidelined having missed 11 consecutive games and 14 of the last 15 with a lingering hamstring injury.
The Nets are thriving in spite of missing KD beating Griffin’s former team on Saturday.
James Harden posted his ninth triple-double of the season against Detroit registering 24 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. The superstar has raised his defensive intensity with the Nets and showcased that Saturday with two steals and three blocks.
Kyrie Irving (18), Landry Shamet (15), DeAndre Jordan (14), and Joe Harris (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is probable for Monday. Durant (hamstring), Griffin (assimilation), are out while Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is out for the season.
