The Knicks had an answer to every Warriors rally

It wasn’t plain sailing for the Knicks, who led by 15 points several times. The Warriors cut their lead to six, 62-56, at halftime as Curry scored 13 of his 15 first-half points. He finished with 27 on 8-of-20 shooting.

Golden State came close to four points several times, most recently with Trayce Jackson-Davis’ dunk to make it 99-95 with 9:29 left in the fourth quarter. But the Knicks had an answer to every Warriors rally.

“It’s tough and their coach did a really good job of calling timeouts,” Jackson-Davis told reporters. “He used them all whenever we had a little bit of momentum.”

Bojan Bogdanovic and Josh Hart teamed with Jalen Brunson to push the Knicks’ lead back to double digits.

Hart earned his fifth career triple-double with 10 points, 11 rebounds, and 11 assists while playing all 48 minutes. Brunson finished with 34 points to lead all scorers following back-to-back 40-point performances that earned him his third NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week honor.
