The Knicks come back to win again

The Knicks return to success and after having collected two defeats against top-tier teams in the East they beat the Magic in a sprint thanks to the decisive defensive play by Reggie Bullock (20 points off the bench) – who steals the ball from Evan Fournier, author of 23 points, and thus condemns Orlando to the ninth consecutive defeat. The 17 points each scored by Nikola Vucevic and Aaron Gordon are also useless for the guests.

New York instead, without point guard given the simultaneous absence of Payton, Rose, Rivers and Quickley, ranks Alex Burks in the quintet (21 points and excellent impact) leaving the management of the attack in the hands of Julius Randle: the All-Star of the Knicks thus collects the third triple double of his season, author of 18 points, 10 rebounds and above all 17 assists – a personal best in career and all-time for a “non-guard” in the history of the Big Apple franchise.
