Kyle O’Quinn a proven contributor off the bench

With the recent trade of Carmelo Anthony to OKC, the Knicks acquired Enes Kanter who become another addition to the center position for a team that already had three game ready players for the position. This didn’t stop Kyle O’Quinn from proving his worth coming off the bench behind Kanter as he’s proven his rebounding ability is hard to not use. For the season just starting, O’Quinn has already secured 3 double-digit rebounding games and has been averaging about 1.5 blocks per game. O’Quinn energy and hard nose defense has continued from where he left off last season and his ability to grab offensive rebounds has provided energizing moments for the Knicks during their recent win streak.

As the season continues to progress, O’Quinn’s proven success will be relied on for the Knicks whose bench has helped relieve the young Knicks starters as they have gotten off to strong scoring start and have brought playoff hopes back for the new look team. Games like his recent monster performance against the Nuggets where he put up 15 points to go with 12 rebounds, and 5 blocks show what kind of versatility O’Quinn brings to his team. The Knicks are top 10 in the league in both field goal shooting and rebounding and are in the top half of the league in passing and free throw shooting. It’s definitely been a surprise that the team has rebounded well from their slow start and have proven with their young core that the Knicks will be a legitimate team to be dealt with for a while.
