The New York Knicks have a rising star in RJ Barrett. 

On Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers Barrett scored 20+ points for the fourth straight game.

The 21-year-old was the third overall pick by the Knicks in the 2019 NBA Draft. 

Against the New Orleans Pelicans last week he had 35 points.

On Wednesday against the Pacers he had 23 points, five rebounds and three assists. 

On the season he is averaging 18.6 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists. 

He's also shooting a ridiculous 51.1% from the field and 42.9% from the three-point range. 

If this continues, Barrett could end up being an All-Star this season. 

The Knicks lost to the Pacers 111-98, but are still 5-3 on the season. 

  • Enes Kanter And Myles Turner Get The Same 2k Ranking: Myles Turner of the Indiana Pacers got the same rating in NBA 2k22 as Enes Kanter of the Boston Celtics. The two centers getting the same ranking comes as a surprise. Turner is one of the best defenders in the NBA, and while Kanter had a productive season, he is not on the same level as Turner.

  • Opinion: The Pacers Should Look At Harry Giles: The former Duke star was once ranked as the best player in the country in high school by ESPN. After several injuries, he never hit stardom as everyone had anticipated. However, he is still just 23-years-old and could for sure help many NBA teams, including the Pacers. CLICK HERE.
