The Knicks starter gets angry comparing him to Hall of Fame member Shaquille O’Neal

The New York Knicks “needed” Jalen Brunson in their 97-92 Game 4 win over the Philadelphia 76ers to take a 3-1 lead.

Brunson finished with 47 points, scoring 38 points in three quarters.

He also dished out 10 assists and grabbed four rebounds and only turned the ball over once. But Brunson’s offense helped deliver the victory, leading all scorers with nine of the Knicks’ 20 points in the fourth quarter.

“We needed this,” Josh Hart told reporters on April 28. “His small forward, power forward, whatever I am, that’s not a possibility. I was like Shaq at the free throw line, so we needed that. But no, he played very well in attack. Aggressive and I felt we needed it. So now we have to continue to build on that in Game 5 and move forward.”

Hart finished the game with four points, going 0-for-7 from the floor, 0-for-8 from beyond the arc and 4-for-8 at the free throw line.

The Knicks shot 61.5% as a team at the charity stripe in the contest.
