Alec Burks had a good night off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with 21 points (7-of-12 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.
With RJ Barrett (6/4/1/2/1 with one 3-pointer) shooting 2-of-10 from the field, the Knicks needed someone to step forward alongside Julius Randle. Enter Burks, who scored 14 of his 21 points in the fourth to help New York pull away for its fourth straight win. And given the slump that he was on, Burks needed a performance like this. In the six games prior he averaged 7.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 3-pointers per, while shooting 26.7% from he field and 91.7% from the foul line. Due to that slump Burks' fantasy value took a hit, but he's still worthy of a look in deep leagues heading into the fantasy playoffs. Apr 14 10:33 pm (EST)
