Video: Knicks’ RJ Barrett bullies P.J. Tucker for game-sealing basket
The New York Knicks pulled off a huge upset over the Houston Rockets on Monday, as Knicks rookie RJ Barrett hit a clutch layup over Rockets forward PJ Tucker with 7.6 seconds left in regulation to seal the win for New York.
The Knicks won by a final score of 125-123. Barrett played 30 minutes and finished with 27 points, five rebounds and four assists. This particular bucket by Barrett on Tucker is really impressive considering how elite of a defender the Houston power forward is.
Barrett entered Monday averaging 13.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists for the Knicks. The lefty has been up and down all season, just like everyone on New York’s roster.
However, look for Barrett to finish the season strong and try and lock up one of the All-Rookie spots.
