Pacers Coach Claims Jalen Brunson Is A Mixture Of These 3 NBA Superstars

By:

Jalen Brunson has led the New York Knicks to the second round of the NBA playoffs after defeating the Philadelphia 76ers in six games. They will face the Indiana Pacers starting Monday.

In the first round against the Sixers, Brunson was nearly unstoppable. The guard out of Villanova averaged 35.5 points per game, 4.5 rebounds per game, and nine assists per game.

The Pacers are preparing for an epic matchup between Brunson and Tyrese Haliburton and Indiana coach Rick Carlisle needs a near-perfect gameplan to stop Brunson.

Carlisle appeared on The Dan Patrick Show today and discussed what he thought of Brunson’s play. He compared Brunson to three NBA superstars. Steve Nash, James Harden, and Damian Lillard.

“He’s a little bit of Steve Nash, there’s some James Harden, and there’s some Dame Lillard,” Carlisle said.
