Victorious debut in the playoffs at Madison Square Garden for the New York Knicks thanks to a superb defense that wowed the crowd.
After the game, the Knicks players spoke about the incredible atmosphere that is created in the most important games at MSG.
“There’s no audience that comes close to Madison Square Garden… There’s no such setting, there’s no way to replicate the electricity generated here. Personally, I’m just happy to be a part of it,” Brunson explains.
On the same wavelength was RJ Barrett, who was back on offense after two negative shooting tests in Ohio.
“As a basketball player, you grow up with moments like this… There was an electric atmosphere and I’m excited to be able to relive it on Sunday.”
