New York beats Sacramento in a comeback

At Madison Square Garden the start belongs entirely to the Kings, who even lead 46-25 in the 2nd quarter, but the Knicks play a great second half, comeback and win led by the usual Jalen Brunson. The other great protagonist of the evening is Josh Hart, who scored 31 points, shooting 14/19 from the field and coming close to a triple double with 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Sacramento has 29 points, 7 assists and 7 rebounds from De’Aaron Fox, but in the second half the team shoots 36.7% from the field and collapses.

With Julius Randle officially out for the entire season, the Knicks need Jalen Brunson’s offensive talent more than ever to avoid throwing away a season that was taking an excellent turn for Tom Thibodeau’s boys. And even against Sacramento the former Mavs does not betray, leading his team to the comeback and therefore to victory with 35 points and 11 assists.
