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 114 to 113 Knicks victory. The win bumps New York's record up to 31-51 on the season, while the loss drags Philadelphia's down to 28-54. 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, Justin Anderson's 26 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 blocks and 3 steals in 35 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Unfortunately for Anderson, 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.

At the helm for the Knicks in the victory was Justin Holiday and while he may not have posted a more attractive statline than Anderson, he did help his club walk away with the victory. Holiday posted 20 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assists in the win.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Knicks walking away victorious was New York's ability to limit Philadelphia's offensive output. By holding the Sixers to less than they usually produce the Knicks made their life considerably easier.

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