Miles McBride stepped up on Tuesday night during the New York Knicks’ crucial game-five win over the Indiana Pacers. The former Mountaineer finished with 17 points and four assists in 40 minutes. McBride also got the starting nod as well.

McBride shot 7-of-15 from the floor with a trio of triples and recorded a plus-minus of +26.

New York ended up bouncing back from two-straight losses, beating the Pacers 121-91 and taking a 3-2 lead in the series.

During the series vs. Indiana, McBride is averaging 9.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 26.4 minutes.

In December, McBride signed a $13 million extension with the Knicks over the next three years. The Knicks have traded away many players throughout the season, allowing McBride to pick up more minutes in the rotation. McBride has started sporadically when the Knicks have been injured and his minutes have been all over the place.

McBride is averaging 8.3 points through 68 games while averaging 19.5 minutes per contest.

McBride saw more opportunities during his second year in the NBA with the Knicks. McBride appeared in 64 games during the 2022-23 season. McBride averaged 3.5 points and 1.1 assists last season. The Cincinnati, Ohio, native shot 36 percent from the field. The Knicks picked up McBride’s team option before NBA free agency began this past offseason.

McBride played two seasons at West Virginia from 2019-21, leading the Mountaineers to an NCAA Tournament appearance during his sophomore year. McBride averaged 15.9 points, 3.9 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
