Jalen Brunson delivered a phenomenal 44-point performance as the New York Knicks surged past the Indiana Pacers 121-91, reclaiming a pivotal 3-2 lead in their playoff series.

The Knicks bounced back from a tough loss with Brunson leading the charge, supported by contributions from Josh Hart (18 points, 11 rebounds) and Miles McBride (17 points).

Supported by contributions from Alec Burks (18 points) and Isaiah Hartenstein (7 points, 17 rebounds), the Knicks dominated the Pacers on both ends of the floor, particularly on the glass.

Despite a strong effort from the Pacers’ Pascal Siakam (22 points, 8 rebounds) and Myles Turner (16 points), the Knicks’ collective effort proved too much to overcome.

With the series shifting back to Indiana, the Knicks have an opportunity to close out the series on Friday, aiming to secure a spot in the Eastern Conference finals. The Knicks aim to advance to the conference finals for the first time since 2000.
