New York Knicks Stage Stunning Comeback to Take 2-0 Series Lead Over Philadelphia 76ers

New York Knicks (E2) – Philadelphia 76ers (E7) 104:101 (SCORE A BAKER), Series: 2-0

With 30 seconds left, the Knicks were down -5 before complete chaos ensued. Fortunately, Jalen Brunson, who had missed seven shots in the previous six minutes, converted a three-pointer from the corner after the ball first hit the hoop and then bounced into the basket. The Sixers then failed to throw the ball in properly, so Tyrese Maxey fell to the ground and Josh Hart was able to rip the ball out of the Sixers guard’s arms.

After that, Donte DiVincenzo was completely free and missed the throw, but Isaiah Hartenstein was there under the board and the ball found its way to DiVincenzo again, which this time was successful from the pear. Philly had 13 seconds left but was determined to drive from Maxey Hartenstein was there again, clearing the guard properly.

The Knicks won with an 8-0 run in the final 27 seconds of the game.

For the Knicks, all starters scored in double figures, Brunson (8/29), DiVincenzo (19, 4/8 3P) and Hart (21, 4/7 3P, 15 re -turnovers), who played the entire 48 minutes. , he converted four threes each. Hartenstein (14, 7/8, 8 rebounds, 3 blocks) did a great job against Embiid and also had some good moments offensively with two floaters in the fourth quarter. But his defense in the second half stood out.
