Knicks’ Jalen Brunson Leaves Game 7 With Hand Injury 

Knicks’ Jalen Brunson Leaves Game 7 With Hand Injury 

Jalen Brunson did what he could for the New York Knicks before he broke his left hand Sunday in the second half of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.

He was yet another painful loss to injury for the Knicks after they had already lost four key players.

The Knicks were unable to slow down an Indiana Pacers team that was the highest-scoring team in the NBA and one that was far deeper. The Pacers won 130-109.

“I’m proud of what we were able to do this year and the way we fought,” Brunson said. “Obviously, the outcome is not what we wanted.”

The Knicks got within a victory of reaching the conference finals for the first time since 2000, despite losing All-Star forward Julius Randle in January and key reserves Mitchell Robinson and Bojan Bogdanovic in the playoffs.

They had also lost OG Anunoby after the star strained his left hamstring in game 2. He missed the next four games before returning to start Sunday. But he was clearly limited and played just five minutes before he was removed for good.

“I was trying,” Anunoby said. “I couldn’t really sprint, I couldn’t really jump, but I wanted to try my best.”

He made both of his shots, but his defense, the strength of his game, wasn’t there with his lack of movement. The Pacers could tell and used that to get open shots.

“I know it’s Game 7 and you want to give everything, but you’ve got to be healthy and I thought he didn’t look healthy out there,” said Pacers forward Pascal Siakam, a teammate of Anunoby’s in Toronto.

Brunson had five 40-point games in the postseason but was struggling Sunday, going 6-for-17 for 17 points. He also had nine assists before leaving in the third quarter.
