Both David Fizdale and Brad Stevens complimented RJ Barrett following his 26-point, 7-rebound performance in the New York Knicks' 118-95 loss to the Boston Celtics.

"He's a stud, that's the only way I can put it. He's a stud," said Fizdale after the game.

Stevens noted Barrett's offensive versatility.

"His ability to shoot the ball early on has been impressive. He's always been able to get down hill and finish. Big strong guard. The way the league is going, he can play 2-through-4. And he finished the game the other night at the point. So quite an impressive young guy," added Stevens.
