Slowly but surely, the New York Knicks have been getting better and better.
For a while, fans were afraid that this season was going to end up like the last but the Knicks have had some serious oomph and fight in them lately and are now the 6th best team in the East with a 15-13 record.
The team looks smart, fast, and efficient on both ends of the court.
Their offense is so much better lately too, partly because of Jalen Brunson.
Jalen Brunson dropped Caruso!

Brunson is officially one of the best choices the Knicks have made in some time and the acquisition of him in the summer is universally celebrated by all fans of the team.
On Wednesday night, Brunson showed just how great he is as he moved so quickly that he left one of the best defenders in the league, Alex Caruso of the Chicago Bulls, on his back.
It’s not often that Caruso is left so dazed by an opponent.
But it’s not often that he goes against someone like Brunson.
Brunson Getting Buckets
On Wednesday night, Brunson scored 30 points and 7 assists.
As always, he did it with his patented speed and skill.
He is never the biggest athlete on the court but he plays fearless ball, not afraid to get into the paint against towering giants or attempt great perimeter shots with unbelievable speed.
That’s what Caruso and the rest of the Bulls saw on Wednesday and it led to a big 128-120 win over the Bulls.
The Knicks are looking a lot better and Brunson is looking incredibly fun.
