The New York Knicks had an injury scare at the end of Game 2 after Julius Randle took a hard fall. Randle was still in the game as the Knicks were down 20+ points, as was Jarrett Allen, who was assessed a flagrant one foul. Randle exited the game and went back to the locker room.
After the game, Randle called Allen’s foul “unnecessary” while Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that it wasn’t worthy of a flagrant foul. Luckily for Knicks fans and Tom Thibodeau, Randle appeared to be fine after the game.
With Randle’s status still up in the air entering Game 1, he ended up playing and finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds. His efficiency was off in Games 1 and 2, and especially with Games 3 and 4 being at MSG, the Knicks are going to need the best of Randle.
