The Knicks emerged...um...victorious in a wild, back-and-forth final quarter, knocking off the Philadelphia 76ers by the score of 114-113. The game winner came on a baseline jumper from — you guessed it — Maurice Ndour. Marshall Plumlee blocked Nik Stauskas on the other end. Plumlee had a 14-point, 11-rebound double-double. These are all things that really happened in an NBA game.
The Timberwolves lost, of course, so the Knicks end the season tied for the sixth-worst record in the league. Pending the results of a coin flip — which Minnesota will win, of course — the Knicks will end up picking 7th at least.
Carmelo Anthony played what might have been his last game as a Knick!!!! Melo didn’t try to go too hog wild, but did display some vintage Melo’esque step-backs, isos and post jiving.

If Justin Holiday just played his final name as a Knick, he at least went out as an example of how to carry yourself on both ends of the court. New York’s super sub dropped 20 points and 5 rebounds on the Sixers.

Please come back, Justin.
Courtney Lee demonstrated a bit of veteran scoring savvy in his limited minutes. Eight points on five field goal attempts for the Knicks’ starting shooting guard...followed by zeroes in every other category. Whatever.
