Luke Kornet scored a career-high 18 points in Sunday’s loss, drawing the start at center and logging 34 minutes against the Raptors.
Kornet also added four rebounds, a steal, a block and three triples while shooting 7-of-15 on the night. He looks like the next Garden favorite, assuming the role previously held by luminaries like Ron Baker and Jimmer Fredette. He started because Enes Kanter is dealing with a back injury, and he’s got to be added in pretty much all deep leagues after this performance. The Knicks might give Kanter a few days on the sidelines and Kornet can clearly pitch in in several categories. Kanter’s absence also helped Kyle O’Quinn, who went four eight points, seven rebounds, five assists and three blocks in 22 minutes. KOQ should already be owned in 12-team formats.
