Sophomore shooting guard Quentin Grimes was excited about the job he did on Cleveland Cavaliers star Donovan Mitchell yesterday during the New York Knicks’ 92-81 home win, as Mitchell shot just 1 of 6 in the 1st quarter and ended the game at 8-22 from the field/2-11 from behind the three-point line.

“I knew that was going to be a big matchup with everything that happened this summer,” Grimes said. “Come in focused. That’s one of the best players in the NBA. Had to stay locked in, and I feel like I did a good job on him today and we came out with a win.”
