Chalk one up for the Baby ‘Bockers.
With Julius Randle missing his second straight game with a bruised quad, youngsters RJ Barrett and Obi Toppin led the Knicks to an emphatic victory Wednesday over the Hornets, 121-106.
Toppin was especially impressive in his second straight start, recording 18 points with 11 rebounds, six assists and zero fouls in 40 minutes. Barrett dropped an efficient 30 points on 10-of-19 shooting, picking up the pace for a team that recorded 30 assists Wednesday.
Rookie Jericho Sims (10 points, 5-for-5 shooting) started at center because Mitchell Robinson was ruled out with an injury.
The Knicks (31-42) went up by 16 after the first quarter and never gave up the advantage, snapping the Hornets’ (37-36) five-game winning streak.
