Although Magic remains winless. There is one certain and clear for the young team – they have a great future ahead to them. They have the young and potential cornerstone core in Paolo Banchero, Franz Wagner, Bol Bol, Jalen Suggs, and even in Markelle Fultz. Speaking of Paolo Banchero, he became the first teenager to score an average of 20 points per game in four straight games. Bol Bol produced his yet career night after scoring 19 points and 5 rebounds came off the bench as he also shows a significant potential after making moves and showcasing his footwork dribbling skills which is rare to his 7 foot size. He also received significant amounts of playing time with his new team – with this progress, we will not be shocked if Bol Bol became a star caliber player in the near future.
On the other hand, the New York Knicks’ potential comeback into the playoffs, after last season’s terrible and disaster performance, is now looking bright as the team found the right guard that will point to a very promising future.
“You can’t say enough about what Jalen does for the team,” Thibodeau said. “He’s just in complete control at all times. You hit some tough spots in the game and he has just such a strong demeanor and strong face, and it’s one of determination. It gives your team belief that, ‘We can do this,’ “ he added during the post-game interview.
The mini-spark that Brunson brought gave the Knicks a comfortable victory (2-1) as the team’s shot began to fall and continued to sink Magic into another defeat. Now, with Jalen Brunson excellent fulfillment on the guard position for the New York Knicks, it alleviates some pressures carried by their stars, especially in RJ Barrett and Julius Randle (who also shows a hunger for redemption by putting an exclamation with a strong performance with 25 points and 12 rebounds.)
“Julius was terrific from start to finish,” Thibodeau said. “I love the way he’s diversifying his game. Running the floor. Sometimes he’s the pace guy, he’ll push it up and then he’ll create movement. Sometimes he just beats people down the floor. Him getting easy baskets is huge for us.”
Randle and Barrett voiced out their high praise to the newcomer as they kept on praising Brunson’s ability to show in the crunch time, being a floor general, making necessary plays and passes, dictating the teammates into the right position, taking the pressure off of other stars, and keeping the team in poise.
