The New York Knicks have been on the upswing lately. They were at or close to .500 for most of the season. After a 128-120 win in OT vs the Chicago Bulls, the Knicks are 15-13 on the year and sixth in the Eastern Conference. New York has won six of its last ten games. Head coach Tom Thibodeau praised Jalen Brunson after the game for being a player the team can rely on in critical situations.
Yesterday’s game was the second of a back-to-back mini-series against Chicago. The two will play again Friday in Chicago. It was the fifth straight win for the Knicks. Jalen Brunson had an incredible game for the Knicks and it’s proven that he’s getting better as the season progresses. In the OT win, Brunson had 30 points, 2 rebounds and 7 assists for the game. He continues to produce for New York this season.

Jaylen Brunson hit the sword to ensure the victory for the Knicks
Brunson has dealt with a few injuries this season, but has yet to miss a game for the Knicks. He suffered a concussion last Sunday against the Kings and somehow was unharmed. Brunson said if he can walk, he’s going to play and give it his all. Tom Thibodeau had this to say about Brunson’s performance last night.
“He’s been through a lot of different things. [He] He has a strategy for everything,… “He just goes out there and gets it done. – Tom Thibodeau
Bottom line, the team was happy to win and are now on a somewhat good run. After the second game of a back-to-back against Chicago, the Knicks will play the Indiana Pacers on Sunday at 5:00 p.m.
