Game Highlights

Brunson’s Stellar Performance

Jalen Brunson was the undeniable star of the night, racking up a massive 47 points. His performance was not just about scoring; he also dished out 10 assists, showcasing his dual-threat capability. Brunson’s 52.9% shooting from the field, including key baskets down the stretch, kept the Knicks in the driver’s seat throughout the contest.

“It was all about finding the rhythm, and once we got that, we just rolled with it,” said Brunson after the game.

Knicks’ Defensive Prowess

Defensively, the Knicks were on point, holding the 76ers to a mere 35.4% shooting from the field. The defensive strategy was clear: stifle the 76ers’ attempts from beyond the arc, where they only made 27.3% of their shots. Key defensive plays, including three blocks from Precious Achiuwa, were crucial in keeping the 76ers at bay.

76ers’ Struggles

For Philadelphia, Joel Embiid tried to carry the load with 27 points and 10 rebounds, but his 36.8% shooting night reflected the team’s overall struggles. Tyrese Maxey and Kelly Oubre Jr. contributed 23 and 19 points, respectively, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Knicks’ momentum.

Looking Ahead

With the series heading back to New York for Game 5, the Knicks are looking to capitalize on their home-court advantage and clinch the series. The 76ers, facing elimination, must regroup and find a way to ignite their offense if they hope to extend their postseason run.

What’s Next?

The Knicks could close out the series with a win in Game 5, while the 76ers need a victory to keep their playoff hopes alive. It’s do-or-die for Philadelphia, and they’ll need more than just Embiid firing on all cylinders to survive.
