Miles McBride, former WVU and current New York Knicks guard, added a clip to his highlight reel on Thursday night. McBride stole the ball and slammed a dunk on Dallas Mavericks forward Maxi Kleber.

McBride got the start on Thursday as starting guard Jalen Brunson is out with an ankle injury. McBride ended the night with 21 points, six rebounds, five assists and two steals on 9-of-22 shooting in 45 minutes of play. McBride’s 21 points is a career-high for the third-year player.

McBride recently signed a $13 million extension with the Knicks over the next three years. The Knicks have traded away many players throughout the season, including during Thursday’s trade deadline.

McBride is averaging 5.9 points through 39 games while averaging 12.2 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.
