New York's do-it-all forward Josh Hart drops a 10-11-11 line in a full 48-minute game as the Knicks escape Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors

Jalen Brunson weaved his way to a game-high 34 points, Miles McBride chipped in with a career-best 29 and the New York Knicks used their offense as the driving force in a 119-112 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Monday night (Tuesday, March 19, Manila time) in San Francisco.

Donte DiVincenzo added 18 points against his former team and Josh Hart completed a triple-double with 10 points, a game-high 11 rebounds and a game-high 11 assists in a full 48-minute run as the Knicks (41-27) improved to 3-0 on their Western road trip with a fourth consecutive win overall.

Stephen Curry overcame a slow start to post a team-high 27 points and rookie Trayce Jackson-Davis had 19 for the Warriors (35-32), who used superior bench play to get within 99-95 on a Jackson-Davis alley-oop dunk with 9:29 to go.

But the Knicks used a timeout to get Brunson back into the game, and he responded with five points down the stretch to help the Knicks put up their biggest point total since February 6.

Brunson shot 12-for-25 overall en route to his 27th 30-point game of the season. He has totaled 121 points in New York’s wins at Portland, Sacramento and Golden State over the past five days.

After never having scored more than 21 points as a third-year pro, McBride drilled six of his nine 3-point attempts and nine of his 13 shots in all.

He had 19 of his points in the first half, during which the Knicks built a lead they never relinquished in a wire-to-wire win.

Isaiah Hartenstein aided the New York cause with a 13-point, 10-rebound double-double, helping the Knicks’ starters outscore their Golden State counterparts 104-52.

Curry and Klay Thompson, who finished with 18 points, combined for nine 3-pointers for the Warriors, but they could do no better than play the Knicks evenly from beyond the arc, with each team scoring 42 points from deep.

Thompson also found time for a team-high eight assists, while Jackson-Davis flirted with a double-double with a team-high nine rebounds.

Jonathan Kuminga had 16 points and Chris Paul supplied 14 for the Warriors, who fell below .500 at home for the season at 17-18 in the opener of a three-game homestand. –
