Isaiah Hartenstein and Jalen Brunson Lead New York Knicks to Victory in NBA Playoff Series against Indiana Pacers

Thanks to hard work from Isaiah Hartenstein and another strong performance from Jalen Brunson, the New York Knicks also won game two in the NBA playoff series against the Indiana Pacers.

Hartenstein recorded a double-double of 14 points and 12 rebounds in 39 minutes of play at 130:121. There were also eight assists for the basketball player from Lower Saxony, who now needs two more wins with the Knicks to reach the final series of the Eastern Conference. Hartenstein had to play for so long because substitute Mitchell Robinson was injured.

Although Brunson missed a fifth game in a row with at least 40 points and finished the game with 29 points, he still led his team in the decisive phases.

He caused great enthusiasm when he returned for the second half after missing the entire second quarter due to an injury. The Knicks were ten points behind at halftime.

“He’s a great leader. The guys all respect that when a guy is willing to give everything he’s got. That says a lot about him,” said Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau.

Tyrese Haliburton had the best performance for the Pacers and scored 34 points. Games three and four of the series will be played in Indiana on Friday and Sunday.
