The New York Knicks win the derby against the Nets again

The Knicks make sure to play the first round of the playoffs with the home advantage, but they still have the chance to take second place in the standings having the same record as the Bucks (49-32). Jalen Brunson starts slowly but finishes with 30 points and 11 assists, OG Anunoby scores all 15 points in a 30-13 third quarter for the Knicks which overturns the 30-14 with which the Nets had started the New York derby, the fourth lost out of four in this bad season.

With nothing left to ask of the season, the Nets still put up a fight, starting strong before melting away in the second half. Leading the guests are Cam Thomas’ 41 points, perhaps the only happy note of Brooklyn’s season as they faced this match without Dennis Schroder, Dorian Finney-Smith, Cam Johnson and Dennis Smith Jr. The season is about to begin for them too. end and they can move on.
