Mitchell Robinson was impressive tonight against the Bulls helping the Knicks put an end to a losing skid. In particular, the young center scored a new career-high 23 points in the 125-115 win against the Bulls.

Robinson also recorded 10 rebounds along with 2 assists and 2 blocks. The New Orleans “product” claimed before the game that he doesn’t care if he starts or not.

“Starting not starting, it doesn’t matter,’’ Robinson said before the game. “I’m just here to play and play hard. If I start it’s cool. If not, not going to cry about.’’

Robinson is averaging 9.6 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2 blocks per contest this season, as the Knicks improved to 18-42 after their home win against Chicago.
