Ends season on low note
Playing on a minutes restriction, Noel failed to have any sort of tangible impact in what was a disappointing end to the season for the Knicks. He picked up his ankle injury during Game 1 of the series and never really looked right despite suiting up in all five games. Looking ahead to next season, it is hard to see Noel carving out a more sizable role, meaning he will likely remain a defensive streaming specialist once again.

Scores 13 in 19 minutes
The rookie played a playoff-high 19 minutes, and he was on the floor for the entire fourth quarter, which the Knicks entered down 17 points. Toppin's 13 points were also a playoff career high, and Sunday marked the first time since Mar. 11 that he scored in double figures. Coach Tom Thibodeau appears to be gaining some trust in Toppin, though he'll likely continue to play a relatively minor role for as long as the Knicks can manage to extend the series.
