Jalen Brunson is the first Knicks player with a 30-point playoff game at MSG since Melo in 2013 🤩 PM

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA
Took seven and a half quarters, but Jalen Brunson has finally figured out how to isolate a bad defender in his wheelhouse. A testament to Miami’s collective paint protection. – 9:55 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Jalen Brunson is the Knicks’ closer, and he’s getting hot in the fourth quarter.
The Heat’s closer is on the bench getting popcorn crumbs on his Alo Yoga jacket. – 9:51 PM
Mike Vorkunov @MikeVorkunov
What a great job by Isaiah Hartenstein to flip the screen last second there and trap Gabe Vincent on the wrong side and free Jalen Brunson for that go-ahead 3. – 9:51 PM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
Jalen Brunson hits 5 of his 7 shots in 3rd Q – including 3 of 4 from three – to rebound form a slow start in 1st half. Knicks trail MIA, 77-76, heading into the 4th. NYK season’s on the line over next 12 minutes. Only 7% of of the 446 teams to fall down 0-2 in series have won it. – 9:26 PM

3-point shooting in 3rd quarter:
– Miami Heat (2/9)
– Jalen Brunson (3/4) – 9:25 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Heat clinging to a 77-76 lead. Jalen Brunson scored 13 points in the third. Heat need to close off those driving lanes in the fourth. – 9:23 PM
Law Murray @LawMurrayTheNU
Josh Hart’s playmaking has been just what New York (and especially Jalen Brunson) needed in this 3rd quarter – 9:15 PM
Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs
Jalen Brunson is hurt. Doesn’t have explosion. That takes nothing away from the fantastic defense MIA is playing on him. – 8:24 PM

Julius Randle and Jalen Brunson (ankles) will warm up . . . and then we’ll see. Typical waiting game. Spoelstra speaks at 6 pm, with Butler up in the air. All three listed on 5:30 p.m. NBA injury report as questionable. – 5:49 PM

More on this storyline

The slumping Sixth Man of the Year finalist could be called upon again to step in Tuesday night with starting point guard Jalen Brunson questionable for Game 2 against the Heat with a sore right ankle. Quickley averaged 22.6 points and 5.1 assists in 21 starts this season, but he’s scored just 9.0 points per game on 34 percent shooting in six appearances off the bench in the postseason. “Just doing anything the teams needs me to do to win,” Quickley said after practice Monday, before Brunson’s injury status was revealed. “It’s playoffs, so it’s not really about necessarily what you’re doing, but how you’re doing it and how you can help the team win. That’s what I’m here to do.” Whether he starts in Game 2 or not, Quickley vowed that the Knicks will “shoot better [Tuesday], for sure” after they missed 27 of 34 attempts from 3-point range in Game 1. -via New York Post / May 2, 2023
