Fresh off the first win of the Mike Miller era against the Golden State Warriors, the Knicks carried the momentum to another victory, this time in Sacramento on Friday night, beating the Kings, 103-101. The Knicks (6-20) scrambled to a thrilling fourth-quarter comeback against the Kings (11-14).
Buddy Hield dominated the Knicks on both sides of the court for most of the night. The Sacramento guard made RJ Barrett and Julius Randle work to catch up to him.
In the first half alone the 26-year-old went 4-for-4 on threes, soaring through the air for rebounds. Hield finished with 34 points, 12 rebounds and three assists. But Julius Randle had a strong game, with 26 points, nine rebounds and four assists.
But it was the bench, led by point guard Elfrid Payton, that came through in the clutch. The Knicks trailed by 16 at the half — as many as 17 in the third quarter — and rallied in the fourth. Payton, Mitchell Robinson, Damyean Dotson, Bobby Portis and Kevin Knox helped lead the comeback off the bench.
“I saw unbelievable effort,” Miller told reporters after the game. “I’m really happy for that group. That group is fun to watch.”
