On the day, New York kept its victory by shaking off Washington’s persistent pursuit despite the physical strain of its back-to-back schedule. New York’s ace, Jaylen Brunson, was at the center of the victory.
Despite playing for as long as 40 minutes, Brunson had 41 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists, leading his team to victory. Notably, Brunson had 21 points through the third quarter, but managed to score 20 points in the fourth quarter alone. This is the fourth time this season that Brunson has scored more than 40 points in a single game.
Brunson, who is spending his career high season averaging 25.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and a 42.5% three-point shooting success rate, proves himself on the court that his four-year, $104 million contract with New York ahead of the 2022-2023 season was not overpay.
New York, which is ranked fifth in the Eastern Conference with 25 wins and 17 losses this season, recently hired OG Anunubi through a trade with Toronto, strengthening the size of the wing line where Dante DiVinchenzo and Josh Hart were holding out.
However, as he invested R.J. Barrett and Immanuel Quickley, who had quite a lot of offensive roles in the process of recruiting Anunubi, Brunson has to play a more consistent role as an option.
Still, New York made a bold decision to embrace Anuobi, the league’s best offense and defense wingman, because it believed Brunson, who scored 26.6 points on average in November, 26.9 points on average in December, and 25.9 points on average in January.
New York, looking higher with Brunson, will meet Toronto, its trade opponent, on the 21st and try to win three consecutive games.
