Dennis Smith Jr. turns in a gem as Knicks' starter

New York Knicks point guard Dennis Smith Jr. scored 15 points (5-of-12 field goals, 4-of-5 free throws) with 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 7 steals, 1 3-pointer, and 3 turnovers in 29.4 minutes of a 123-112 loss to the Houston Rockets on Monday.

What It Means:

Elfrid Payton (ankle) and Frank Ntilikina (groin) were both sidelined, so Smith stepped in with his best game of the season. The steals set a new career-high and the rebounds represent a new season-high. Smith may be in line for another start on Wednesday versus the Charlotte Hornets if Payton remains out.

DSJ scored a season-high 48.9 FanDuel points on Monday. He's averaging only 14.4 FanDuel points through 32 games this season.
