New York Knicks’ Julius Randle Scores Career-High 57 Points in Disappointing Loss to Timberwolves



A Dominant Performance

Julius Randle put up a career-high 57 points, including a record 26 points in the third quarter, but it wasn’t enough for the New York Knicks to secure a win against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The game was filled with poor defense and ended with a score of 140-134. Despite Randle’s impressive performance, Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau expressed disappointment in the team’s loss.

Teammates Acknowledge Randle’s Effort

Randle carried the Knicks throughout the game, with his teammates acknowledging his performance. Knicks guard Jalen Brunson praised Randle, saying that “he played unbelievable.” Unfortunately, Randle’s valiant effort was not enough, and the team fell short of securing a much-needed win.

Carmelo Anthony’s Scoring Record

Randle’s career-high puts him alongside Knicks legends Carmelo Anthony and Bernard King, who put up 62 and 60 points respectively in past games. Randle scored 52 points by the end of the third quarter, putting him on pace to surpass Anthony’s record. However, the Knicks fell behind, and Randle was held to just five points in the fourth quarter.

Lack of Intensity on the Defensive Side

The Knicks struggled with their defense throughout the game, allowing the Timberwolves to shoot 61.4% from the field. Even when the team needed a defensive stop in the final seconds of the game, they couldn’t deliver. The lack of intensity ultimately resulted in a frustrating loss.

Randle Hopes to Reflect Positively in the Future

Although Randle delivered an outstanding performance, the fact that the Knicks lost the game made it difficult for him to reflect positively in the moment. He hopes that he can eventually look back at his career-high with pride.
