Brunson won’t complain about Randle’s last play
On February 1, at the end of an NBA regular season, the Los Angeles Lakers defeated the New York Knicks 129-123 in an away game thanks to the team’s outstanding performance and through overtime battles. In an interview with the media after the game, Knicks player Brunson talked about player Randall‘s handling of the final attack under double-teaming.
Brunson mentioned in an interview: “Randall got an open chance, and then the Lakers chose to double-team, and his shot was lost, but it doesn’t matter, he can make up for his mistakes in overtime, so I think I don’t care too much about his choice of the last attack.” Randall played 43 minutes and 01 seconds in this game, and hit 6 goals in 19 shots, including 2 of 9 three-pointers, 9 of 11 free throws, and 23 points and 12 free throws. Rebounds and 5 assists.
The Knicks fell behind by nearly double digits in the fourth quarter of the game, but they caught up in the last few minutes and got a 4-second lore, but Randall chose to face the double-teaming of James and Davis alone. In the end, he didn’t get a chance to make a shot, and Brunson was in a wide open position at this time. Randall’s offensive choice this time was obviously very bad. In this game, the Knicks finally lost, and Randall needs to bear certain responsibilities.
In this game, Brunson played 43 minutes and 37 seconds and hit 13 goals in 29 shots, including 2 of 7 three-pointers, 9 of 9 free throws, 37 points, 2 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal and 1 block.
