[PHILADELPHIA] — The Philadelphia 76ers played host to the New York Knicks last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 98 to 97 Sixers victory. The win bumps Philadelphia's record up to 11-25 on the season, while the loss drags New York's down to 17-22. Though a win's a win and 76ers fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Joel Embiid's 21 points, 14 rebounds, 1 assists, 1 blocks and 1 steals in 26 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Ask anybody, however - Embiid included - and the most important part is that the 76ers walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Kyle O'Quinn did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Knicks. O'Quinn's 10 points, 15 rebounds and 3 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Philadelphia's offensive contributions were complemented from a decent showing on the defensive end of the ball. While they didn't exactly shut down the visiting Knicks, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Sixers will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Sixers will be a date with the Charlotte Hornets while the visiting Knicks will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Chicago Bulls.
