Jalen Brunson Makes Knicks History vs. Kings

New York Knicks point guard Jalen Brunson has solidified his status as one of the best players in the NBA at his position. He has put the team on his back at many points this season with injuries to key players derailing the team’s success.

In the team’s final game, Brunson had another standout performance that helped lead the Knicks to victory. Playing in a tough environment on the road against the Sacramento Kings, Brunson scored 42 points.

It was a masterful performance from the NBA All-Star, with Brunson shooting 17-of-28 from the field and 5-of-10 from 3-point range. He added four rebounds, two assists, four steals and a block for an impressive stat line.

In the process, he made Knicks history, joining an elite group. This was the second consecutive game in which Brunson scored more than 40 points, as he had scored 45 against the Portland Trail Blazers in the game before the Kings.

This makes Brunson just the fourth player in Knicks history to score 40+ points in consecutive games. The last player to do so was Carmelo Anthony in 2014. However, Brunson is the first guard to accomplish the feat for the franchise. The other two players to score 40+ points in consecutive games were Bernard King and Patrick Ewing.
