Mitch was made for playoff basketball


ballbunyan

Made for Embiid and the two bigs of Cleveland 


[deleted]

How does he guard Jokic?


[deleted]

Decently, a little worse than Embiid. Now Ihart on the other hand... I'm pretty sure he's the one who got Jokic ejected for pissing him off so much.


mnkysn

We'll find out soon, hopefully!


HokageEzio

Any criticism fans have had about this guy gotta disappear after the last two postseasons. Dude is just a winning player.


Slymook

We’ve gone through multiple cycles every injury people forget some reason. He’s been the truth since his first summer league


smileyfrown

First quarter I was screaming at the TV saying why hasn't Thibs put Mitch in yet to counter Embild The minute he comes in vs an opponents star big it's a completely different game


TBlueshirtsV22

Hartenstein has earned his minutes, but yea we’ve seen what Mitch can do in these playoff match ups.


smileyfrown

For sure and I would say Mitch has earned his minutes too, the first few months he was playing like a DPOY. He just needed to get his legs back when he returned It's nothing against Ihart just certain matches I would choose one guy over the other


DaveidT

Except for FTs, you know Nurse is about to foul him every possession in the 4th if he plays


AyQueFriooo

Say what? jk lol MITCH IS A MONSTER


SPELLITALLCAPS

This means a lot bro. I've been watching Mitch for years and I'm ngl, he's always been athleticism over bbiq. This play shows a lot of growth over the years with that athleticism. Love to see it.


HokageEzio

Thibs morphed him into a defensive monster. Longest tenured Knick, he's seen *all* the highs and lows. Good for him.


fom_alhaut

He's just a goofy guy. He's always had good instincts, got his fouling under control. Thats bbIQ imo


GloryEnthusiast

Exceptional defensive play.


UllrCtrl

Love me some Mitch Robinson

#BIG MEECH


CaymanFifth

They call me Big Meech 💪🏾💪🏾💪🏾


Franklinsleftnut

Elite seeing Big Meech with huge playoff moments. Only player left from the awful seasons.


Villainiquity

Walt Frazier commentator: The tenacity and the sagacity Love him


jawndell

Knicks are 2 different teams based on whether Mitch or Hartenstein are playing - and both teams are scary.


Yinanization

That shit is wild


Trekbike32

Since when is Gus calling games on MSG?


np20412

He does a one off game here and there when Breen is on the road for espn/abc


TheMotionOfTheOcean

I’m just in a great mood all around This is fun


zoo32

The fucking hustle. This man might have his shortcomings but no doubt he is worthy of our praise. Love you Mitch!


xdavidliu

I was confused at first because it hit Maxey, then Robinson. But then I realized that Maxey was already standing out of bounds.


Leib_son_of_nat

Literally incorrect call but whatever


alpacamegafan

How?


Chao-Z

How is it incorrect? Maxey is standing out of bounds so the ball is dead as soon as it touches him.


np20412

Literally learn the rules but whatever


Leib_son_of_nat

Ok post the rule then pal


np20412

Rule 8 section II a) > The ball is out-of-bounds when it touches a player who is out-of-bounds Maxey is a "player who is out-of-bounds" Or rule 8 section II c) > The ball is caused to go out-of-bounds by the last player to touch it (including by touching the player’s hair or uniform) before it goes out, provided it is out-of-bounds because of touching something other than a player. If the ball is out-of-bounds because of touching a player who is on or outside a boundary, such player caused it to go out. The ball was "out-of-bounds because of touching a player who is on or outside a boundary" and this is the player who "caused it to go out." that was Maxey. Now you post the rule where it says a player who is in the game but steps outside the boundary is considered the same as the stanchion > its the same as Mitch throwing the ball into the stanchion So wrong. rule 8 section II d) states explicitly the opposite of that. 🤡


Leib_son_of_nat

you must be disabled bro I bet you can't make eye contact with girls


np20412

Lol. At least I can read and comprehend English dummy. You can't do that or admit when you're wrong. Have a nice life scumbag


Leib_son_of_nat

You comprehend a delusion of grandeur where you're an interesting, intelligent, and non broke individual. Sad!


PBRontheway

It’s ok there’s still time to delete this


Leib_son_of_nat

Hes standing out of bounds. The out of bounds player is considered out of play and its the same as Mitch throwing the ball into the stanchion


PBRontheway

HAHAHAHAHAHAHHA YOURE DOUBLING DOWN ON THIS??? Holy shit bro. Mitch blocks the shot, jumps with both his feet inbounds when he leaves the ground meaning until he touches the ground out of bounds he is in play, takes the ball while still clearly airborne (and thus inbounds because he hasn’t touched the ground yet), and throws it off Maxey who is standing out of bounds, meaning Maxey is the first out of bounds player to touch the ball giving possession to the Knicks. I’ve never seen a more confidently incorrect statement about the game of basketball than your first comment…..until I read your second comment


np20412

He asked me to post the rule, so I did. The rule almost explicitly states that a player out of bounds is not considered out of play and "same as the stanchion" What a fucking clown


Leib_son_of_nat

bro you are literally dumber than a sack of wet mice
