Brunson

After Joel Embiid’s game-changing 50-point performance, the New York Knicks‘ star player in Game 4 was Jalen Brunson. It was an exciting matchup. In a game that saw the Knicks win 97-92 and take a commanding 3-1 series lead, Brunson led the team to an incredible triumph on the road with an incredible 47 points.

In addition to helping the Knicks to a vital victory, Brunson’s incredible performance left a lasting impression on the team, shattering the franchise record for the most points scored in a single playoff game.

The Philadelphia 76ers had a lot of momentum going into the game, especially since Mitchell Robinson of the Knicks was not playing because of an ankle strain he suffered in Game 3. They had a great start, outscoring the Knicks 27-17 in the first quarter, but the Knicks fought back, cutting the margin to 49-47 at the half.

With an incredible performance that includes making 9 of 11 free throws and shooting 18 of 34 from the floor to score an incredible 47 points, Brunson deserves a lot of the credit for the Knicks’ comeback.

Achiuwa plays more defensively while Brunson shines.

While his teammates struggled offensively, Brunson shone brightly in a stunning show of defensive skill. Josh Hart rebounded with an incredible 17 rebounds, demonstrating his value beyond scoring, despite Donte DiVincenzo’s struggles outside the arc and his 0-for-7 shooting performance.

The Knicks’ efforts were strengthened by OG Anunoby’s double-double of 16 points and 14 rebounds, while Precious Achiuwa’s crucial role off the bench—particularly in restraining Embiid following Hartenstein’s foul trouble—highlighted his defensive perseverance.

Achiuwa’s heroics in the fourth quarter not only demonstrated his defensive prowess but also helped the club secure a vital win, demonstrating the tenacity and depth of the Knicks’ squad.

Despite being worn out, Embiid persevered for the duration of the second half, scoring 27 points on 7 of 19 shots after his incredible effort in Game 3. In addition, he scored with 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 2 blocks.

For the Sixers, Tyrese Maxey scored 23 points on 8 of 21 shots. The Knicks can now anticipate a passionate home audience when the series moves back to New York, where fans are hoping for a trip to the NBA playoffs’ second round.
