Happy trails! The New York Knicks Big 3 quiet the thunder and end the trip on a high note

What a difference eight days…and 26 missing points…makes.

The New York Knicks headliners played their fullest game of the season Monday night as RJ Barrett, Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle enjoyed lucrative evenings in a 129-119 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Paycom Center.

Brunson tied his career-high regular-season 34 points on 14 of 20 shots from the field and dished out nine assists, including two alley-oops on Barrett and Jericho Sims, silencing the crowd to round things out. The former had his best night of the season by far, breaking out of a prolonged shooting slump with 25 points on 10-of-16 shooting, including 3-of-4 from three-point range. Although he also missed a double-double, Randle finished the job by matching Barrett’s 25 points and 11 rebounds.
