Knicks win and stay alive

Once again the Knicks scored more that 110 points and won at home; they still can’t lose Game 6

Two teams could qualify for the Conference Finals yesterday. But at the end of the night, neither of them did. The first one was the Miami Heat. They were up 3-1 in the series versus the New York Knicks and could advance with a victory. However, the Knicks managed to win the game and stay alive for another day.

Jalen Brunson was the man for the Knicks last night. Much thanks to him, New York won Game 5 and is still fighting for the qualification. But they are still on the edge and can’t afford another loss from now on. And their biggest challenge will be Game 6, in Miami.

Once again in this series, we had a not-so-high score, as predicted. The New York Knicks once again won the game scoring more than 110 points, and with the 112-103 victory, they now have the highest-scoring points by a team in the same game in this series. The Miami Heat on the other hand remains close to their 106 points average.

As we mentioned, Jalen Brunson was the man of the match in Game 5. He was the only one to score more than 30 points. But we also had some other great performances in the game. Check out the numbers.
