Mudiay sprinted to join the fast break and was rewarded for his effort as Burke found him with a one-handed bounce pass. After gathering the ball in stride, Mudiay elevated to throw down a powerful right-handed dunk despite the attention of Temple who had chased back hoping to make amends for his turnover.
It proved to be to no avail as Mudiay hammered the ball home, extending the Knicks’ lead to 96-93 and sealing their third successive win.
