For Jalen Brunson it will not be a game like any other against the Mavs. The Knicks have found the best point guard around, while the Mavericks are still struggling after Brunson’s departure to New York.

Jalen Brunson spoke about the Mavericks and Saturday afternoon’s match: “I think they need to find some rhythm just like we need to do”, explained Brunson who didn’t appear in the least excited about facing his former team: “I don’t I’m excited, it will simply be our next game.”

Although Brunson does not show any emotion, his bond is strong with the Mavericks: “They know me and I know them. It will be a battle of who wants to win the most.”
