The Knicks head to Charlotte for a perfect chance to get back to .500 against an injury-decimated Charlotte Hornets team.
Tonight will also apparently be the debut of RJ Barrett, power forward. I have been asking to see if RJ could pull off a little four for a few years now, so I’m curious as to how this experiment will go. RJ is small, but he is strong, and it’s not like the Hornets have some dominating post presence at the four (they start PJ Washington there, who is only an inch taller than RJ), so it should be interesting.
Thibs has actually hinted that he might use Hartenstein as a power forward, though, instead, paired with Sims at the 5. So we shall see!
Let’s go, Knicks!
