Enes Kanter was dynamite in Monday's 115-116 loss to the Bulls, coming off the bench for 23 points, 24 rebounds, a career-high seven assists and one steal in 41 minutes of action.
Kanter became the first Knick ever to drop 20 & 20 after coming off the bench. He went 8-of-14 and breathed life into the punchless Knicks the second he hit the floor. David Fizdale has challenged the big man to contend for the Sixth Man of the Year award, but Kanter has been pretty clear about wanting to start again. It wouldn't be surprising to see him back in there eventually but there's no telling how aggressively the Knicks will commit to a full-on youth movement. He'll still be a solid middle-round guy even off the bench, but there's no denying that he has a much higher ceiling as a starter.
