RJ Barrett had a terrific game on Friday night, carrying the New York Knicks against the 1st seed in the Eastern Conference, Miami Heat, going off on the Floridian, although the Knicks couldn't get the win. 

The Canadian young player dropped 46 points on his rivals, which were the most by a Knicks player since Carmelo Anthony also had 46 in 2014. He was on a tear during the game, and everybody was in awe of his performance. 

Even though he couldn't get the win, Barrett's performance granted him a lot of praise, including from the rivals he dominated during the entire match. Following the game, some Heat players praised the 'Maple Mamba,' with Jimmy Butler even claiming he'll be the face of the Knicks in the future. 

“I don’t think anybody is surprised or should be surprised. He’s gonna definitely be playing in this league for a long time and he’s going to be the face of the Knicks."
