According to a report from, Robinson has recorded a block in 29 straight games, which is good for a new franchise record. The previous mark was held by Patrick Ewing (28 consecutive games with a block). Overall, Mitchell is just the 5th rookie in league history to block two or more shots in 20 consecutive outings.

Being mentioned in the same breathe as Patrick Ewing in any defensive category is a great honor, as he was one of the most formidable big men in the league's history.

New York selected Robinson with the 36th overall pick in last year's draft. He's been a fine addition to the roster, though the team has struggled to find a rhythm throughout this season.

In 56 appearances with the Knicks (12 starts), Robinson has racked up averages of 6.6 points on 68.1 percent shooting from the field, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in 19 minutes per outing.

The Knicks (14-58 and 5th in the Atlantic Division) will be back in action on Friday night, when they'll welcome the Denver Nuggets to town. Tip-off inside Madison Square Garden is set for 7:30 p.m. ET.
