Julius Randle Puts Up A Historic Performance In A New York Knicks Loss On Monday

The New York Knicks may have come up short against the sharp shooting Minnesota Timberwolves at Madison Square Garden on Monday night, but for Knicks fans, it's a night that they won't forget any time soon.

After seeing a career rejuvenation this season from All-Star forward Julius Randle, the Knicks were treated to the best game of his career, as he set a new career high of 57 points, tied for the third-highest scoring game in the storied history of the New York Knicks.

That performance was even more impressive when you consider it was achieved on 19/29 shots including 8/14 from beyond the arc, and with a 26 point third quarter, Randle set the all-time Knicks record for points in a single period. 

The Knicks may have fallen short of a big win, but given their form as of late, there's no doubt that they will be a threat in the playoffs, and if Randle can do anything close to this when the lights are on brightest, we could be looking at a deep postseason run.
