RJ Barrett hit 10-of-14 shots, 6-of-6 3-pointers and 3-of-4 free throws for 29 points, five rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes of Wednesday's tough 101-99 loss to Boston. This was his second-highest scoring game of the season and by far his most efficient one. He had 22 points and four triples on Monday and while he hasn't had a steal or a block in three of his last four games, he's having a breakout season for the Knicks. His last 3-pointer tied the game but Marcus Smart answered with a triple of his own and the Celtics closed it out at the free-throw line.
