“Jalen Brunson’s 42 points lead Knicks to narrow win against league-worst Pistons” – New York Daily NewsDecember 1, 2023
The Knicks narrowly avoided a surprise loss to the Detroit Pistons, the NBA’s worst team, despite needing a strong effort from Jalen Brunson to secure a 118-112 victory. Despite the team’s all-star talent, including Julius Randle, the Knicks struggled to put away the undermanned Pistons, with Brunson’s 42 points leading the scoring effort. Immanuel Quickley and Quentin Grimes, however, failed to contribute much offensively, leaving the Knicks vulnerable. With a back-to-back against the Toronto Raptors on the horizon, the Knicks will need to regroup and come out ready to play if they hope for a different result.
