The New York Knicks had their season come to an end Sunday with a Game 7 blowout loss at home to the Indiana Pacers.

The sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden was ready to celebrate what would have been the team's first trip to the Eastern Conference finals since the 1999-2000 season. Instead, they had to watch their banged-up squad fizzle out in the 130-109 loss.

One of those dinged-up players was Jalen Brunson, who broke his hand in the loss. Brunson became a fan-favorite in New York, with Knicks fans loving the way he plays and how clutch he has been in huge situations.

Brunson had this emotional message for Knicks fans after the loss:

The Pacers, who won the last two games of the series, will face the Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals. Game 1 is Tuesday night in Boston.
