New York Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau praised Jalen Brunson’s ability to never complain about officiating after this past weekend’s 98-91 road win vs. the Sacramento Kings (42 points/4 rebounds/2 assists/4 steals/1 block/17-28 FG/5-10 3-PT/3-4 FT/+5 +/-).

(via New York Knicks):

“He’s such a gifted shotmaker. He’s a hard guy… I don’t want to say too much, but I felt like he’s getting hit a lot. But the best part of him is he never complains. He’s not crying, he’ll just keep going and he’ll focus on making the shot, which he did. So without getting off his game, he just kept going. But to drive the ball as many times as he does and the physicality that he’s being trapped. They’re pursuing him, they’re hitting him, and he only had four free throws. But that’s what I love about him, he’s tough-minded, he’ll figure it out, he knows how the game’s being called. He knows he’s on the road, it’s going to be tough, and that doesn’t slow him down. He doesn’t let the officials impact him in any way.”
