Following Wednesday night’s easy 122-101 defeat of the Atlanta Hawks, New York Knicks superstar Julius Randle seemed very happy with his team.
“Vibes are smooth for sure,” Randle told the New York Post.
It’s been a long time since we have seen the team looking and feeling this good and a huge reason for that is the one-two punch of Randle and his teammate Jalen Brunson.
I repeat when we talk about Dynamic Duos in the league… make sure we MENTION Randle and Brunson!!! Carry the hell on…

NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins praised that duo on Wednesday following their big success.
“I repeat when we talk about Dynamic Duos in the league…make sure we MENTION Randle and Brunson!!!” Perkins said.
He isn’t the only one floored by the hard work of these two.
They showed the power of their collaboration on Wednesday, with Brunson posting 28 points and 5 assists while Randle was good for 25.
Between them, they totaled 20 rebounds as well.
The pairing of Brunson and Randle is working well and it’s clear that fans see them as the future of the team.
After many struggles, the Knicks are now the sixth team in the East and have won three games in a row.
They head into the All-Star break feeling good, working well together, and expecting great things for the next few months.
The importance of Brunson to this team cannot be overstated.
Since joining the Knicks in the summer, Brunson has added a jolt of electricity and urgency to the team’s backcourt and has brought life to the roster.
It’s as if everyone around him is playing better too and the entire team is performing at a higher level in 2022-23.
