In a thrilling Game 5 showdown, the New York Knicks seized control with a resounding 121-91 victory over the Indiana Pacers, taking a 3-2 series lead on Tuesday night. The standout performance of the night came from Knicks’ guard Jalen Brunson, who delivered an outstanding 44-point performance, showcasing his prowess despite having struggled with a foot injury in the previous two games.

On the flip side, the Pacers’ T.J. McConnell had a tough night, registering his lowest impact with just seven points and a disappointing minus-19 rating in 19 minutes of play, failing to make a significant dent in the game.

The game saw an intense moment when Donte DiVincenzo of the Knicks ignited the Garden crowd with a fiery confrontation with Pacers’ center Myles Turner following a thunderous dunk in the third quarter, adding an extra layer of intensity to the already charged atmosphere.

One of the key factors that propelled the Knicks to victory was their dominant performance on the offensive boards, outrebounding the Pacers 20-5 in that department. Isaiah Hartenstein was a standout in this area, contributing a remarkable 12 offensive rebounds to further solidify the Knicks’ control.

In the post-game press conference, Knicks’ head coach Tom Thibodeau lauded Brunson’s stellar performance, describing him as a relentless machine on the court, fully focused and prepared for the challenges ahead as the series progresses.
