The New York Knicks power forward Julius Randle admitted that fighting through a twice-sprained ankle over the past month has been “hell,” but his return helped lift the team from the depths of a potential 0-2 hole in their second-round playoff series vs. the Miami Heat.

“We just wanted to come in and be more physical. I think that was one of the spots, especially in the first game, where we felt [we came up short],” Knicks big man Isaiah Hartenstein said. “Having Julius back also brings another dimension to the game.

“When you can be a lot more physical, especially on the offensive boards, it’s hard when you got Julius, Josh [Hart], me or Mitch [Robinson] in the game. It’s hard to box out in those situations. So having Julius back was great.”
