Alongside Jalen Brunson, Julius Randle was the franchise’s go-to scorer. However, Randle had a horrible start to the campaign, causing the Knicks to lose four of their first six games.
The player was extremely inefficient from the field and was constantly being trolled for abysmal shooting figures.
Over the Knicks’ last five games, the forward has been averaging 24.5 points and 10 rebounds, leading the team to a solid 4-1 record.
Responding to all the naysayers, Kendra Randle – Julius’ wife – came to her husband’s defense.
With their latest win over the Atlanta Hawks, the New York Knicks improved to a 6-5 record. Further, the New York side also jumped up a few spots and is now 6th in the East.
Julius Randle did have a pretty forgettable start to his 10th professional campaign. The man lodged merely 15 points on a horrendous 29.5% FG and 64% FT during October.
