Frank Ntilikina finally got to start at point guard on Monday and responded with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Wizards.
Ntilikina also picked up five personal fouls, which certainly didn't help his playing time. The Knicks managed to find 20 minutes for Trey Burke and 10 for Emmanuel Mudiay, so while each of the three has now started in the preseason there isn't much in the way of separation. We'd imagine that Burke opens the year as the starter before eventually stepping aside for Ntilikina, but hopefully David Fizdale can see enough from the sophomore in the team's final preseason games and practices to make the call before opening night.
