BOSTON (AP) — Knicks guard Jalen Brunson missed the game against Boston on Sunday because of soreness in his left foot.
New York came into the game with an eight-game winning streak, matching its longest of the season.
Brunson was the Eastern Conference’s player of the month for February, averaging 27.3 points, six assists and shooting 52.9%
Immanuel Quickley replaced Brunson in the starting lineup.
Boston came in having lost two of its last three games, including a 109-94 loss to the Knicks last Monday at Madison Square Garden when star Jayson Tatum was ejected for the first time in his career after getting two technical fouls.
