The New York Knicks rolled with Emmanuel Mudiay at the point guard position coming off the All-Star break, but it’s his resolve that is meant to keep him in the starting lineup, after taking over for starter Jarrett Jack after the All-Star break. “I’m not going to take it for granted. I came in as a lottery pick, so I was kind of handed the spot and stuff like that. So the fact that I’m in that position again, it’s a blessing,” Mudiay said, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley. “Thank God for it. I just have to take full advantage.” Mudiay had only played in three games as a Knick before getting the nod from head coach Jeff Hornacek, dropping eight points, five rebounds, four assists, and a steal in a win over the Orlando Magic, snapping an eight-game skid.
