Here's Frank Ntilikina after his 10-point, 10-assist, 7-rebound game against Brooklyn on Monday: "My last two games were not that good so I learned about it. I was like let's go, stop thinking about it. I was thinking too much in these games. I just said let's go, let's bring what I can to the team." Richie Felder, one of Ntilikina's representatives at CAA, had a two-hour breakfast with the rookie point guard before the game. Felder talked to Ntilikina about being aggressive and leaving the first half of the season behind him. That message seemed to resonate. "It's time," Ntilikina said after the Nets game. "I know it's about time especially I have to go out there and be confident and be aggressive. I won't relax now. I'm just motivated to do more in the future." The Knicks will need more from Ntilikina and guard Trey Burke during a grueling 6-game road trip, which may define their season.
