The All-Star Game is up next for Julius Randle. Randle capped his breakout first half with 27 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists, sending the New York Knicks into the break with a winning record after a 114-104 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Thursday night. RJ Barrett added 21 points to help the Knicks improve to 19-18 in their first season under Tom Thibodeau.
