The New York Knicks picked up a wild 104-101 win over the Philadelphia 76ers in Game 2 of the first round of the NBA Playoffs on the back of Jalen Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo's back-to-back three-point shots in the waning seconds that came after the Knicks trailed by five, and the two spoke on the never quit mentality the team has under head coach Tom Thibodeau.

“The one thing about this team, no one really cares about who's doing what, who gets the credit for what or anything,” Jalen Brunson said, via Knicks Videos on X. “We just want to go out there and win. I said last time if I played bad again and we win that's fine for me. Obviously I want to play better, but to the point where we're all sitting together no matter what, no matter what the situation is, we're all gonna have each other's back. And so whatever's working at the time we're just gonna keep doing.”

Brunson has not shot well in the first two games of the series for the Knicks, and if you were told that would happen ahead of Game 1, many would think that the 76ers would be up 2-0. Instead, it is the Knicks who came away with the first two games. In Game 1, Brunson shot 8-for-26 and scored 22 points, and followed that up with an 8-for-29 shooting performance in Game 2, but the three-point shot he made with the Knicks down five set up a steal on the ensuing inbounds play, which led to the Donte DiVincenzo three-point shot for the lead.

DiVincenzo said that the Knicks were confident the whole time, despite being down five in the last minute.

“I don't think our confidence ever wavered,” DiVincenzo said, via Knicks videos. “In the timeout, it wasn't like the game was over. It never is, especially playing for Thibs.”

The Knicks now will go to Philadelphia and try to win at least one of the next two road games to take a stranglehold on the series.

Knicks players love playing for Tom Thibodeau

DiVincenzo said that the Knicks never felt like the game was over, and that it was in part due to Tom Thibodeau's coaching. Josh Hart raved about his coach in the press conference as well after playing all 48 minutes of the game.

“Thibs has that unfair wrap, I think we all love playing for him. I think we'll all run through a wall for him,” Josh Hart said, via Knicks Videos on X. “Right now it's playoff time. You want to play every second you can, so that's our guy and we're gonna back him all the time.”

Hart has been an integral part of the first two wins for the Knicks. Brunson hopes to turn in a better performance to hope the Knicks get a road win in Game 3 and take a 3-0 series lead.
