After a slow start in summer league play, RJ Barrett has caught fire at the end: in his last two games, in 58 minutes, he has had

38 points, 20 boards, nine assists three treys, three blocks and just two assists. And in his last game he nearly got a triple doubled with 21 points, 10 assists and eight boards.

Just as it’s foolish to get too wound up about poor summer league play, you shouldn’t get too hyped about good play too. However, it’s not like he’s just scoring. And he’s taking care of the ball too.

The Knicks are going to love him.
