A hard-fought game 6 rewards the Knicks led once again by Jalen Brunson

The Knicks arrive in Philadelphia with the possibility of going through and start very strong, even going beyond 20 points already at the end of the 1st quarter. The Sixers, however, come back by finding unexpected resources from the bench like Buddy Hield (20 points and 6/9 makes threes) and the 4th quarter turns into a very tight point by point. New York wins on the shoulders of Jalen Brunson once again being decisive and Josh Hart with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists.

To close out the series in Game 6, the Knicks needed another great evening from their star, and Brunson responded once again with the third consecutive game over 40 points. In his game there are 41 points and 12 assists, in addition to managing the ball in all the decisive passages of the victory that sends New York to the second round of the playoffs.

If Brunson was once again the leader of the Knicks and Hart confirmed himself as the team’s driving force, it was Donte DiVincenzo who made the decisive plays in game 6. For the former Bucks and Warriors 23 points, 7 assists and 4 rebounds, but above all the coolness from the line in the final minutes and the defense on Maxey which effectively prevented the Sixers from trying and scoring the triple of a possible draw at the final siren.

In the recovery of the Sixers, who started game 6 very badly but then returned to the game in a great way, there was, as usual, the signature of Joel Embiid. The Cameroonian finished with 39 points and 13 rebounds, but showed some fatigue in the second half of the 4th quarter, with some carelessness that cost him the 6th foul which excluded him from the final possessions in the final point-to-point.

After a game 5 like an authentic superhero, Tyrese Maxey returns to the humans playing a very tiring game 6 for large stretches. The Knicks defense almost always prevents him from gaining speed and the Sixers point guard ends up shooting poorly (6/18 from the field and 1/6 from three) and ends with 17 points a game in which Philadelphia needed him to put on his costume again and cloak.
