Randle, Knicks hope to keep building on surprising success

  Randle, Knicks hope to keep building on surprising success NEW YORK (AP) — Before last season, the New York Knicks had few expectations and no real star power. Julius Randle changed a lot in New York. He led the Knicks to a surprising playoff berth and turned himself into an All-Star who was rewarded over the summer with a contract extension. Now, the Knicks believe they are in a good position going into this season and set up for success in the future. “I think getting established as a team last year, getting credibility by the degree of how hard, how smart and how together, it makes it appealing for other people to look at us,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “And we have to win.

What a game! The two teams that were there at the beginning of the NBA, provide an absolute classic to tip-off NBA 75 for each of them.

The historic Knicks-Celtics rivalry provided a thrilling entertainer. It had everything but in the end, the hosts outlasted the visitors after 58 minutes of action.

Julius Randle dropped 35 while Evan Fournier put up 32, most of them in the second half, as they helped the Knicks overcome a franchise record 46 points from Jaylen Brown.
