2785879, Some of the 'blame' on Brunson getting hurt

if you want to use the word blame falls on his style of play. His hesitation dribble and prevalence of scoring with some regularity in the paint is going to lend to him getting some bumps and bruises along the way as result of defenders coming in contact with him. Don't get me wrong; I am fully appreciative of what Brunson brings to the table as the Knicks have needed a capable point guard for the last 20-25 years; I'm just saying I'm not surprised to see him get hurt given how he plays. I dunno how much of that you can put squarely on Thibs.

To your larger point of Thibs playing guys for too many minutes, I agree with you 100%. I am grateful the Knicks will seemingly avoid the play-ins so the players will get some relative amount of rest at the end of the season.

It does hurt to see both Randle and Brunson have to nurse injuries right towards the end of the season though.
