The Knicks got thrashed on Monday afternoon but saw some positive things out of Frank Ntilikina, who had nine points, two rebounds, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.
Most importantly, Ntilikina was one of the few Knicks who looked even half-engaged on the defensive end. He only went 4-of-12 from the field but somehow finished as a plus-three in a game that featured a 20-point margin for well over 30 minutes. It should lead to more minutes for him going forward but you never know with the Knicks. Deep-league owners in need of steals and assists can keep an eye on his minutes going forward. Emmanuel Mudiay had an empty 14 points in 18 minutes and was a minus-21 as Oklahoma City jumped out of the gates and put this one to bed early.
