Julius Randle is one of the breakout players of the season, and he has shown what he can do when given the reigns to a franchise. Julius Randle has developed into a top-tier power forward, and he has elevated the New York Knicks into playoff contention. The New York Knicks are the 6th seed in the Eastern Conference, and it seems like there could be good things that are brewing in New York.

The New York Knicks have had a reputation among the league as a hapless franchise for many years, but it seems like that is changing this season with Randle's emergence. By beating the Dallas Mavericks, the New York Knicks are now on a 5 game winning streak. They haven't had a 5 game winning streak in 7 years.

The win against the Dallas Mavericks was special in many ways. Aside from the winning streak, we witnessed Julius Randle outplay Luka Doncic on national TV. Julius Randle finished with 44 points, 10 rebounds, and 7 assists, and was the best player on the court. The tide is changing for the New York Knicks, and their recent winning streak signifies that. Julius Randle has been instrumental to their winning streak, and hopefully, they have many more in the future.

There is a lot to like about this New York team. They play with heart and hustle, and there is not a night where they don't leave it all on the floor on defense. Even if they don't get far in the actual playoffs, this season has been a success for them and their best player.
