DOTSON TO START FOR THE KNICKS!
Coming from a huge Knicks fan, I watched the game in its entirety and was excited to hear he was going to start in place of injured Tim Hardaway Jr. He played very well despite what appeared on the box score a lot of what he contributed does not show up on the box score. He played great defense on Evan Fournier pretty much took him out of the game, just did not get too many looks and airballed one badly (probably just nerves from getting his first start) He looked sharp though excited to continue to watch him play and develop . Was fortunate enough to watch him play for my favorite college and now favorite NBA team. Here is a great video detailing him on the defensive side of the ball tonight.
Thanks for posting ryan that was a good watch.
Dotson has been assigned to Westchester off and on this year. In 7 games, he’s averaged 17.7 PPG 6.3 RPG 2.1 APG and 1.3 SPG.
Dotson’s been back with the Knicks since Jan 31st and has played in 10 of the last 14 games
DOT GOES FOR 30 & 11
It took 5 injuries (3 in game) for Knicks to go with 4 guards. Dot finally got some serious run & the ball enough to do his thing.
“The bulk of the credit has to go to Damyean Dotson, who scored a career-high (duh) 30 points, and grabbed 11 rebounds. He is the first rookie with at least 30 and 10 since—I kid you not—Patrick Ewing.”
Dot just proved he can play in this league. Now, he just needs the opportunity.
Since Knicks added Burke & Mudiay (2 massive lottery busts for Jazz & Nuggets) they use this years lottery pick Frank N at SG.
Add C Lee & Dot just cant get his run.
Dot with 11 pts , 4 rebs, 3 ast in just 19 minutes.
Last Knicks home game of season.
Dot gets 30+ minutes in Knicks finale & puts up double double. 11 pts /10reb/ 2ast.
So, Dot had a pretty good 1st season for a 2nd rounder:
Be interesting to see how he’ll do going forward. Knicks just fired Hornacek so there will be a new coach there.
