Kendrick Perkins has been one of the very few media non-local personalities that has been genuine in his praise of the Knicks. Not just recently either.

What?!?!? If he was joining delicate superstars, I'd be pissed. But I hope he's healthy and sees playing time.

After a mad scramble to find a recent pic for the article, they gave up and went with 2020-21 Randle.

Don’t worry CBS. We’ll still give you credit for the effort.

Last week was the toughest stretch of the Knicks’ post-break schedule, and they won all four games, improving to 9-0 since adding Josh Hart to the rotation. Two of the four wins came against the Celtics, and one of those (a double-overtime victory in Boston on Sunday) came without Jalen Brunson. Immanuel Quickley (who’s been closing games alongside Brunson) started in Brunson’s place, played 53 minutes, scored a career-high 38 points (including 11 in the clutch, and added eight rebounds, seven assists, four steals and two blocks. His Kia Sixth Man of the Year case keeps getting stronger and the Knicks have now been 7.9 points per 100 possessions better with Quickley on the floor (plus-6.2) than they have with him off the floor (minus-1.7).

Of course, while Hart and Quickley have been a huge part of the winning streak, it’s just as important that that the Knicks aren’t getting killed with their starters on the floor. Over the 5-8 stretch that preceded the streak, they were outscored by 15.5 points per 100 possessions in 226 total minutes with their starting guards and forwards — Brunson, Quentin Grimes, RJ Barrett and Julius Randle — on the floor together. And over these last nine games, the Knicks are a plus-5.2 per 100 in 136 minutes with that quartet on the floor.

That’s not dominant, but it gets the job done when you have a bench that simply destroys teams when it enters the game. And it’s not a coincidence that improvement has come with better availability for Mitchell Robinson (who’s been back for six games). The Knicks’ full starting lineup has outscored opponents by 8.6 per 100 in 468 minutes, but the Knicks are a minus-14.5 per 100 in 326 minutes with the other four on the floor without Robinson.

After they host the Hornets on Tuesday, the Knicks will play six straight games against the Western Conference. They’re just 11-11 against the West, but they’re one of two teams (the Sixers are the other) to have held the Kings’ No. 1 offense under a point per possession. A four-game trip begins in Sacramento on Thursday and includes a weekend back-to-back in L.A.

Always... always remember: Less is less. More is more. More is better and twice as much is good too. Not enough is bad, and too much is never enough except when it's just about right. - The Tick

Also in the same article:
Plus-Minus Players of the Week

Right Way: Josh Hart (NYK) and Jordan Poole (GSW) were each a plus-59 in four games last week.
Wrong Way: James Wiseman (DET) was a minus-53 in three games last week.
