The Knicks still are a bad basketball team — Toronto handed New York it’s 16th straight loss Saturday night.
But Dennis Smith Jr. has made them a lot more entertaining. Picked up from Dallas in the Kristaps Porzingis trade and unleashed (because the Knicks don’t have anyone better) he has averaged 19.3 points per game in the four has played for New York. Plus, he’s making plays like this with DeAndre Jordan.
That is going to be in the top dunks of the season highlight packages.
Smith will try to defend his title in the All-Star Saturday Night Dunk Contest next weekend.
