His shooting prowess was on full display, going 17 for 28 from the field and sinking 5 of 10 three-point attempts during his 36 minutes of play.

However, Brunson's impact transcended the game itself, as he made Knicks history by recording 40+ points in consecutive games, a feat last achieved by Carmelo Anthony in 2014. 


This milestone also cemented Brunson as only the fourth player in franchise history to achieve such a remarkable feat.

The stellar performance by Brunson further underscores his sensational season, boasting averages of 27.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists, and 1.0 steals per game, with impressive shooting percentages of 47.8% from the field and 40.2% from beyond the arc across 62 games.


With this crucial victory, the Knicks solidify their position in the Eastern Conference, improving to a 40-27 record in 67 games and claiming the fourth seed. 

Currently riding a three-game winning streak and posting a 6-4 record in their last ten games, the Knicks are poised for continued success as they gear up for their next challenge against the Golden State Warriors on Monday evening.

Meanwhile, the Kings, despite a valiant effort, fell short, dropping to a 38-28 record in 66 games and securing the seventh seed in the competitive Western Conference standings.
