The Knicks take revenge for the defeat two days ago against the Bucks, putting their head ahead already in the first quarter without ever falling behind in the score. Jalen Brunson is absolutely unstoppable and finds the support of three other teammates who go above 20, making the high-level performances of Damian Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo useless.
The absolute dominator of the match is called Jalen Brunson, who starts very strong by scoring 15 points in the first quarter and then continues to be an unsolvable enigma for the Bucks defense, eventually finishing with 38 points after the 36 points scored two days ago again against Milwaukee . New York has five other players in double figures, including three above 20 (Julius Randle 24 and 9 rebounds, RJ Barrett 21 and Immanuel Quickley 20).
Only someone like Giannis Antetokounmpo could think of catching the ball raised very high by Khris Middleton, but the two-time MVP still managed to volley away the alley oop raised by his teammate, making one of the most beautiful plays of the first game Christmas. For him 32 points (17 in the third quarter alone) and 13 rebounds in his sixth Christmas game (3 wins and 3 losses).
