Knicks Hang On, Beat 76ers for Much Needed Win
Final Score: Knicks 99, 76ers 93
Record: 33-20 (1st in Atlantic, 3rd in Eastern Conference)
Current Streak: Won 1
Got a little scary at the end, but the Knicks pulled it off.
See what happens when there is good ball movement? Guys get more involved and see that effect on the defensive end as well.
Granted this win came against the 76ers, but a win is a win and the Knicks needed one big time.
JR Smith should only take shots in rhythm, great game all-around.
Stoudemire was huge 22 points on 9-10 shooting, incredible.
Didn’t do a good job keeping Holiday in check, but didn’t matter.
Kenyon didn’t make it into the game, even though the fans chanted for him. Soon enough though… soon enough.
Loved that Tyson came in and protected Melo by pushing Hawes away from him when they got tangled up. Nice to see teammates looking out for each other.
Over/Under Game Result: Winner Winner! Congrats to Joel Choi. Thanks for playing and writing in your guesses in the comment section.
- Holiday 19.5 Points: Over (30)
- Felton 5.5 Assists: Under (4)
- Melo 27.5 Points: Over (29)
- Hawes 6.5 Rebounds: Over (9)

Hopefully the Knicks can build on this one.
Injury note, Felton left the game with the bruised right heel, but game back in later.
KNOTEWORTHY KNICK OF THE GAME: Toss up between STAT and JR, but going to give it to JR for grabbing that huge offensive rebound toward the end of the game - 14 points, 6 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal
