New York Knicks Dominate in Victory Against Miami Heat: Jalen Brunson Shines with 32 Points

At the end of a one-sided final quarter (36-23), the fans at Madison Square Garden were able to sing the glory of the New York Knicks. Or that of Jalen Brunson, leader of the franchise, author of 32 points for 8 assists, but above all of some particularly appreciated actions in the last act, which allowed his team to come away against the Miami Heat in a match until – there rather close (victory 135-109).

Guided by Jimmy Butler (28 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists), the visitors had so far done rather well but inexplicably gave up while their opponents made a string of baskets. It should be noted that the New Yorkers finished the meeting with a nice 17 out of 33 from three points (51.5%), helped by the activity of OG Anunoby (19 points, 4 rebounds, 2 interceptions). Evan Fournier, who will hopefully be traded before the team’s Feb. 8 deadline, is the only Knicks player who did not come into play during the game.

New York perd Randle

Moreover, the arrival of the latter, obtained as part of an exchange agreed with the Toronto Raptors at the end of December, transformed the “Big Apple” franchise, fourth in the Eastern Conference (29v-17d): in January , it displays a superb record of 12 victories for 2 defeats, the best form in the League. Tom Thibodeau’s men are riding a series of six successes, also the best current series in the regular season. The only downside of the evening: the shoulder injury to Julius Randle (19 points, 9 rebounds) at the very end of the game. The pain was serious enough that the inside went straight to the locker room without being able to shoot the free throws he had been given.

For the Heat, nothing is going well at the moment: last season’s losing finalist has lost its last six matches, is in 7th place in the East (24v-22d) and could see the sixth spot, synonymous with direct qualification in the play-offs, occupied by Indiana (26v-20d), move away a little further.
