He might hardly purchase a basket, beginning the video game 1-for-12 from the field, and NBA Twitter roasted him for it. Its worth noting that Randle was a perfect 8-for-8 from the charity stripe through the very first three quarters, in spite of the crowds best efforts.
Hawks fans ruthless towards Randle.
Its not lost on Hawks fans– or Knicks fans, for that matter– that at one point in the third quarter Randle was simply 2-for-13.
Its never an excellent sign when a basketball gamer has a shooting portion that appears like a batting average, and a bad one at that.
If the Knicks desire to salvage this series, theyre going to need their lone All-Star to begin playing like one.

Julius Randle is having a hard time up until now in the 2021 NBA Playoffs, and Atlanta Hawks fans arent shy about letting him know.
Julius Randle has struggled exceptionally in the first playoff series of his NBA career. He averaged simply 15.0 points per game and shot less than 30 percent from the field in the New York Knicks first two video games versus the Atlanta Hawks — and that was within the friendly boundaries of Madison Square Garden.
The series moved south to Atlanta for Game 3 on Friday night, and Hawks fans are far less encouraging. When Randle stepped up to shoot his complimentary throws, the crowd at State Farm Arena kindly advised him what they actually think: the NBAs Most Improved Player is overvalued.
Hawks crowd opting for the old school “overrated” chant with Julius Randle at the line.
