Reggie Miller on Brunson’s credit for Knicks’ 8-game winning streak
The 2022-2023 NBA regular season continues. The Knicks beat the Warriors 132-94 at home, ushering in an 8-game winning streak. After the game, NBA commentator and NBA star Reggie Miller talked about the Knicks’ 8-game winning streak in an interview with the media. Miller said that the Knicks’ ability to win 8 consecutive victories is inseparable from the Knicks player Jalen Brunson, who resisted the Knicks on his shoulders.
In this game, Knicks player Jalen Brunson performed well. He played 30 minutes and made 7 of 16 shots, 2 of 5 three-pointers, 5 of 6 free throws, 21 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists. 1 steal, the plus-minus value of the game is as high as +22.
Miller said: “The Knicks have won 8 consecutive victories recently, but this team needs to rely on Brunson. Guess what, Brunson’s shoulders are wide enough, and his performance can carry this team.”
It is reported that Knicks player Jaylen Brunson joined the team with a four-year $106 million contract during the offseason this summer.
So far this season, Brunson has played a total of 31 games on behalf of the Knicks, averaging 32 minutes per game, scoring 20.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.2 blocks, shooting 46.8% from the field and 37.4% from the three-point range , averaged 1.6 three-pointers per game, and made 89% of his free throws. With the Knicks inside core Julius Randle playing unstable, Brunson has become the Knicks’ outside stable core ball-holding point.
