Knicks Disappoint NBA Fans as Pacers Cruise to Game 7 Win; Brunson Exits With Injury

The New York Knicks’ season is over after they fell short against the Indiana Pacers 130-109 in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The already injury-riddled Knicks took another blow when star point guard Jalen Brunson exited the game in the second half with a fractured hand. Without Brunson, New York didn’t have enough to overcome a 70-55 halftime deficit.
The Knicks got an outstanding performance from Donte DiVincenzo, who had 39 points, but all the injuries left New York severely undermanned against the Pacers.
Indiana didn’t give the Knicks a break either, shooting a playoff-record 67.1 percent from the field and 54.2 percent from deep.
After the game, Knicks fans lamented the loss and the seemingly never-ending injuries throughout the playoffs.
Considering all of the injuries, it was a commendable playoff run for the Knicks, but ultimately their first Eastern Conference finals appearance since 2000 will have to wait.
