Philadelphia
New York

[NEW YORK] — The New York Knicks played host to the Philadelphia 76ers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 110 to 109 Knicks victory. The win bumps New York's record up to 24-35 on the season, while the loss drags Philadelphia's down to 22-36. Though a win's a win and Knicks 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, Robert Covington's 20 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 3 steals in 39 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Covington, what really matters - the result on the scoreboard - still leans in favor of the Knicks. Perhaps continued performances like this one in the near future will get Philadelphia back in the win column before too long.

Also pegged for the loss was Jahlil Okafor, but one might be reluctant to blame him directly either. Okafor's 28 points, 10 rebounds and 1 assists were appreciated but ultimately for nought.

New York'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 76ers, they did limit them to a point total in line with their season average. Not every performance can be a home run, so the Knicks will settle for the upper hand in this one.

Up next for the reeling Knicks will be a date with the Toronto Raptors while the visiting 76ers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Golden State Warriors.
