Knox totaled 25 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-12 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and a steal across 24 minutes in the Knicks' win over the Lakers in the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday.
Knox did a little bit of everything in the win, including lead his team in scoring. He's put together a strong string of games in the LVSL so far, averaging 18.5 points per game on 50 percent shooting in his last two contests. Knox will need to improve on last season's shooting percentage (37 percent) to score more than the 12.8 points per game he averaged as a rookie.
Knox finished with 12 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 33 minutes during the Knicks' 105-100 overtime loss to the Suns in a Las Vegas Summer League game Sunday.
Knox had put together a solid 17-point, eight-rebound effort to open summer league play, so Sunday's tally represented a slight downturn. However, the fact the 2018 first-round pick should see plenty of minutes in Las Vegas should only help him build on the improvement he displayed during the latter part of his rookie season, one he finished with 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 28.8 minutes (75 games).
