Knicks Beat Pacers 121-117 in Controversy Ending

In Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the New York Knicks showcased their resilience and offensive prowess, securing a hard-fought 121-117 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

Standing shoulder to shoulder with these icons of the game, Brunson has firmly established himself as a force to be reckoned with in the postseason, drawing comparisons to some of basketball’s greatest players.
