Jalen Brunson (PG) vs. De’Aaron Fox (PG)


Jalen Brunson from the New York Knicks’ point guard, has given no reason to question him. Throughout those 60 games and having never come off the court until every game’s closing minute, he accumulated 35.1 minutes and an impressive 26.9 points every game. Such exceptional playmaking abilities are confirmed by his assists record which amounts to 6.6 per game, in spite of his position, he still manages to get 3.7 rebounds on average.


Meanwhile, De’Aaron Fox, Sacramento Kings’ star, had quite a season. He played all 56 games with 56 stars and he is just slightly over Brunson in this game with an average of 27.1 points per game. With his amazing quickness and speed, he becomes a menace to the opponent, and is one of the contributors to making the team more deadly with his rebounding and assists. Fox consistently defended well throughout the season with a remarkable 1.9 steals average per game that might puzzle Brunson.


When two most important actors match on the court, one can say that should be the showcase of skill, thought and then persistence. The pair of guards who played prominent roles in each team’s success, and their duel will be without a doubt a showdown in the game that will affect its ending. Their varying strengths will make for a great encounter, where Brunson’s special focus on passing and scoring gives way to Fox’s speed, defense, and equally formidable offensive talent.
