Over the past two weeks, Ball has been outstanding, posting a top-4 value with averages of 23.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 8.1 assists, 1.9 steals, 4.7 triples on 46.5% shooting. Monday night, he came back down to earth with inefficient shooting numbers but had solid counting stats.

The Knicks' free throw shooting was terrible tonight but they still held on for a tough win over the Bulls.
