Knicks center Mitchell Robinson scored a career-high 23 points and added in 10 rebounds, two blocks, and two assists during the team's 125-115 win over the Chicago Bulls on Saturday.
Teammate RJ Barrett talked about Robinson's dominance as of late during practice on Sunday afternoon.
"He's going on a real good run right now," Barrett said. "I think he's just being himself, and he's just playing hard. That's his talent. His talent is playing hard. He can get every offensive rebound, block everything, and he dunks everything."
Robinson is averaging 9.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game this season over 56 games. He's shooting a ridiculous 73.2 percent from the field this season -- which would set the all-time record for field goal percentage in a single-season, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain's mark of 72.7 percent from the 1972-73 season.
Robinson is also currently tied for fourth in the NBA in total blocks (111) with Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert -- who's won the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award the past two seasons.
