MANILA, Philippines – The New York Knicks may have fallen short in their game against the Los Angeles Lakers, 109-92, but Knicks rookie Kevin Knox put on a show in the second half of their game in the 2018 NBA Summer League.

At the break, the Lakers were up by 11 points, 53-42, and later stretched it to as much as 25 until Knox happened.

The 9th overall rookie pick erupted for 29 points, highlighted by 16 in the third quarter. Knox had a 5-of-7 shooting clip from beyond the arc, and in one stretch, knocked in 3 triples in a row. He also had 9 rebounds and two assists.

Knox’s hot hands heated up Twitter as the former Kentucky Wildcats standout trended with over 10,000 tweets.

It’s just the 5th day of the Summer League, but clearly, Knox has already been topping many basketball fans rookie list.

With that, have a good sleep Knicks fans!
