Don’t look now, but with Mitchell Robinson’s recent rise to the starting lineup, the New York Knicks future starting five looks scary.

They’re long, quick and young.

  • 5. Mitchell Robinson
  • 4. Kristaps Porzingis
  • 3. Kevin Knox
  • 2. Tim Hardaway Jr.
  • 1. Frank Ntilikina

On Friday night, the center showed just how nasty he could be.


With just under six minutes remaining in the third quarter, Robinson took an alley-oop from Lance Thomas, of all players, and slammed it home in reverse style.

Robinson, 20, enjoyed his best professional game to date. Pouring in 13 points while shooting 5-for-6 from the floor while also chipping in with 10 boards, the second-rounder collected his first NBA double-double. He also added a block, three steals and three assists while leading the Knicks to the impressive 118-106 victory in Dallas over the Mavericks.

Fellow rookie Allonzo Trier finished with a team-high 23 on the night. Tim Hardaway Jr. added 18 on 7-of-17 from the floor.
