Knicks rookie Frank Ntilikina has shown some nice flashes on the defensive side of the floor. But on offense, he is very hesitant, and appears aware of his limitations in shooting the basketball. In 21.4 minutes per game so far this season, he’s averaging 6.0 points, 3.5 assists and 1.3 steals. But he’s shooting just 37% from the field, and that’s with pretty selective shot-taking.

“Sometimes it’s who meshes well with what group,” he said. “Frank is meshing well with our second group, Jarrett (Jack)’s meshing well with the first group. We see times when they do mesh with other group and it’s not so comfortable. It’s Frank’s continued work. He’s learning the teams in this league, the guys in this league, he’s going to get better as the season goes on.”
