The Knicks win in the final against Detroit

The Knicks needed a basket and a free throw from Josh Hart (23 rebounds, 8 rebounds and 6 assists) to get the better of Detroit in a tense final game. The hosts lead throughout the match thanks to the usual Jalen Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo with 21 points, but Detroit remains in the wake with Cade Cunningham (32 points and 8 assists) and with the double double of 11 points and 16 rebounds from Jalen Duren, suffering the decisive blow only in the final seconds.

The absences among the Knicks are starting to be numerous and heavy, but coach Tom Thibodeau can always count on Jalen Brunson. Even in the match against the Pistons, which proved to be less easy than expected, the former Mavs player finished with a double double with 35 points and 12 rebounds.
