A second-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Mitchell Robinson appeared in 66 games with the New York Knicks as a rookie. He was incredibly efficient with a 69.4 shooting percentage. The 7-foot center averaged 7.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks. Those 2.4 blocks per game ranked second in the league behind only Myles Turner. He also played 20.6 minutes per game. Robinson recorded 11 double-doubles but just one of those came before February when he really started to heat up. However, he did block nine shots in one game on Nov. 11, tying the NBA season-high for 2018-19. In 11 games from Feb. 5 to March 3, he averaged 11.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks on a tremendous 73.2 shooting percentage. He also recorded five double-doubles during that stretch. Robinson's best game of the season came on March 28 where he posted season highs in points (19) and rebounds (21).
