Julius Randle’s big night; scouts on RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley’s development

A few Knicks notes as the club enters Wednesday’s game at the Dallas Mavericks…

AGGRESSIVE RANDLE

Julius Randle set a season-high in 3-point attempts during his career-high 46-point night against the Sacramento Kings.

The Knicks forward took 16 threes against the Kings, hitting eight of them.

His previous high for 3-point attempts in a game was 10. Last season, it was 13.

In the nine games prior to Tuesday’s win, Randle averaged 3.7 3-point attempts per game.

On Tuesday, he missed four of his first five attempts from beyond the arc. So why did he keep letting them fly on Tuesday?

“I’m not second-guessing myself. Just going out there playing, and if it’s the open shot, it’s the right shot,” Randle told MSG Network’s Mike Breen and Walt ‘Clyde’ Frazier in an on-court interview after the game. “Sometimes I get myself in trouble where I try to make things a little easier, be a little more aggressive and get to the rim sometimes.”

Randle said that approach can lead to his “turnovers” or cause him to “force tougher shots.”

The 2021 All-NBA player said that his mindset going into the Mavs game is simple:

“Open shot, shoot it, in my mind. Miss them, make them. I’m just going to be aggressive regardless.”

On the season, Randle is shooting 31 percent from beyond the arc. That’s 10 percent lower than last year’s 3-point percentage. His two-point field-goal percentage is mostly consistent with last season’s rate. He’s shooting 76 percent on free throws this season after hitting 81 percent last year.

BARRETT ELEVATING PLAY

It was overshadowed by Randle’s big night, but RJ Barrett had a very strong game against Sacramento. He finished with 29 points on 11-of-21 shooting and added eight rebounds and six assists. That well-rounded performance has become the standard for Barrett of late.

In his last nine games, Barrett is averaging 27 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 4.8 assists.

Other teams see Barrett making quick decisions with the ball in his hands and eluding defenders in ways they hadn’t seen in Barrett’s first two seasons in the league.
