Jalen Brunson (PG) vs. Tyrese Maxey (PG)

Jalen Brunson has been a cornerstone of the Knicks, starting all 77 games he played, and ending the season with an outstanding stat line of 28.7 points and 6.7 assists per game. His capacity to dictate the tempo of the game and effectively perform in the clutch gives him significant importance to the Knicks’ offensive strategy. Conversely, his 2.4 turnovers per game indicate his weak side that the 76ers players can work on.

Tyrese Maxey while he is more similar to Brunson’s effect but substitutes that with a better defensive edge with 1 steal per game and an assist-to-turnover ratio of 3.7. While his scoring of 25.9 points per game is slightly lower, it is compensated with his clutch performance in the most crucial time, especially in fouling and scoring from the free-throw line.

When these two vital actors compete against each other, the outcome may prove to be off-kilter depending on the extent of their participation. Both of the guards are capable of taking a game by the storm with their scoring and by facilitating, and the duel between them is going to be the key part of that match. Their battle head-on may not only influence its tempo but they may end-up deciding the result.
