The Knicks, missing OG Anunoby, hardly skipped a beat as Deuce McBride and Jalen Brunson combined to bury the Warriors.

The New York Knicks’ west coast trip continues to go well. On Monday night, the Knicks enjoyed a wire-to-wire win at Golden State, winning 119-112.

New York (41-27) has now won four straight games and will have one last showdown with the Denver Nuggets on Thursday night before returning home to end its road trip.

The Knicks pounced on the Warriors (35-32) to start, using a 16-4 run to grab the lead. Miles McBride and Isaiah Hartenstein came firing out of the gate in the first quarter, providing big plays on both ends of the court until Jalen Brunson started to get going in the second quarter.

New York led by as much as 15 points in the second quarter, when Brunson and Donte DiVincenzo hit back-to-back shots to make it 59-44, with 3:10 remaining in the first half. Golden State promptly called time out and regrouped. The Warriors came out of the break with a 10-0 run to cut the deficit down to single digits, but New York held onto a 62-56 halftime lead.

Whenever the Warriors seemed to be building momentum, the Knicks were able to respond with run-breaking shots or get the necessary stops to stay in front.

Golden State would only cut the Knicks’ lead down to within four, but it was unable to overtake New York. The Warriors managed to make it a four-point game twice in the second half, once early in the third quarter and again in the opening minutes of the fourth after a 7-0 run.

Unfortunately for the Dubs, they would go scoreless for the next four minutes, while the Knicks gradually pulled away with a 7-0 run of their own, starting with a Bojan Bogdanovic jumper and ending with a series of Brunson free throws to make it 106-95 with 5:19 remaining in the game.

The Warriors tried desperately to salvage the game but the Knicks buckled down to hang on for the win.

Brunson led the way with a game-high 34 points on 12-of-25 shooting, with five rebounds and seven assists. Miles McBride posted a career-high 29 points, while Josh Hart grinded his way to a 10-point, 11-rebound, and 11-assist triple-double. Donte DiVincenzo added 18 points, including a 4-of-8 showing from three-point range. Hartenstein rounded things out with a 13-point, 10-rebound double-double.

For the Warriors, Stephen Curry had 27 points on 8-of-20 shooting, including a 4-of-13 clip from long range. He also had five boards and five assists. Jonathan Kuminga added 16 points.

Golden State got a big boost off the bench, with Trayce Jackson-Davis, Chris Paul, and Klay Thompson combining for 51 points.

Jackson-Davis had 19 points on a perfect 9-of-9 shooting, with nine rebounds and three blocks. Thompson had 18 points, eight assists and finished with a team-high +11 plus/minus rating. Paul was massive in the first half, scoring 12 of his 14 points in the first two quarters.

Warrior minutes from McBride

McBride was a warrior on Monday night. He played 47 of 48 minutes, only subbing out briefly in the fourth quarter when fatigue appeared to be settling in after some ill-advised turnovers.

Those miscues weren’t enough to diminish his big night. With Brunson starting the game off slowly (four first-quarter points on 2-of-6 shooting), McBride helped keep the Knicks afloat alongside Hartenstein.

He never cooled off from his strong start and was efficient in his career night. He shot 9-of-13 overall and 6-of-9 from three-point range. He also played a big role defensively and helped minimize Stephen Curry’s damage dealt on the offensive end.

Another triple-double for Hart

It’s impressive how much he affects winning just with sheer effort and ironman minutes. Like McBride, Hart was constantly on the floor. He played all 48 minutes and was never subbed out.

It wasn’t a pretty shooting night, going 5-of-18 overall and 0-for-6 from deep, but he was a workhorse on the glass and on defense. He was already on triple-double alert midway through the third quarter, and he got his teammates going.

He crossed the 10-rebound and 10-assist mark first, before sticking a few baskets in the fourth quarter to clinch his fifth career-triple double, all of which have come in the last month and a half.

High-scoring night for Brunson

This has been a memorable road trip for Brunson. He became the first Knicks guard to post back-to-back 40-point games, and he came close to extending that streak to three straight.

Once he got going, he shot over 50 percent over the final three quarters. Brunson made some tough-contested shots and finished through traffic. Despite seeming frustrated with a few no-calls on some tough baskets inside, he didn’t let that slow him down.

During this road trip, Brunson is averaging 40.3 points per game, while shooting 43-of-83 (51.1 percent).

Quiet night for the Knicks’ bench

It wasn’t as big of a deterrent, since all five of the Knicks starters scored in double figures and played very well in Monday’s win, but the Knicks’ bench had an off-night.

Precious Achiuwa was effective on the glass but hasn’t stood out during this road trip. He had six points and nine rebounds, including five offensive rebounds, but had a team-worst plus/minus rating of -14. Bogdanovic never really got going, scoring four points through 17 minutes, while Alec Burks had a similar stat line of five points through 14 minutes.
