The New York Knicks guard Miles McBride made a major impact on Tuesday night, scoring a career-best 18 points on 6-for-8 shooting, including four made 3-pointers, in 25 minutes in the team’s 123-107 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

“Honestly, I knew I needed to step up,” McBride said after Tuesday’s game. “End of a road trip, I felt like we came out flat and I just wanted to be a spark, give energy and do what I can.”
