Brunson's broken hand affected the Knicks' long injury history

Jalen Brunson He was the undisputed leader of the New York Knicks in these playoffs, but his end was the same as many of his teammates: injury.

The Knicks star broke his left hand on Sunday in the second half of Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, the latest injury to a team that has been plagued all season.

The Pacers stormed Madison Square Garden 109-130, thus imposing logic, as reaching the seventh game in this scenario is almost a miracle. Julius Randle He was sidelined for several months due to shoulder issues, like other luxury minor leaguers Mitchell Robinson and Bojan Bogdanovic They fell during the playoffs and Thibodeau's philosophy claimed two more casualties during the series against the Indiana Pacers. Josh Hart He had difficulty finishing Game 6 due to an abdominal injury. The goalkeeper was able to play the seventh match without problems, but his luck was worse OG Anunoby. The Briton was also injured in that match, but today he was only able to play five minutes.

“I was trying,” Anunoby said. “I couldn't really run or jump, but I wanted to do my best.” He hit both shots, yes, but it was clear something was wrong and the Pacers knew it…and took full advantage of it. “I know it's Game 7 and you want to give everything you have, but you have to be healthy and I thought he didn't look healthy out there,” said Pascal Siakam, Anunoby's teammate in Toronto and his rival today with the Pacers.

Same luck, starting the game and not being able to finish it, ran Jalen Bronson. After some playoff appearances on par with the greatest of all time. With five games of 40 or more points in the title playoffs this season, the Knicks' great hope faced a Game 7 that had everything necessary to be historic… but ended almost tragically. To say the least, the Knicks finished the season not knowing what would have happened if they had had a full roster. If they get this far with a 5-6 player rotation, the future in the Big Apple is promising.
