In a stunning comeback, the New York Knicks overcame a 21-point deficit against the Miami Heat, securing a nail-biting 100-98 victory fueled by Jalen Brunson’s stellar performance with 24 points.

The 27-year-old point guard revealed an unexpected source of motivation for the Knicks’ resurgence, acknowledging the impact of a fan’s candid critique.

“We just stuck together. Honestly, a fan looked at me in my eye over here and said ‘This is embarrassing.’ So I’ll say him,” Brunson disclosed postgame when asked about the driving force behind the remarkable comeback.
