Well that certainly happened. The Knicks played a vastly superior Philadelphia 76ers club, and didn’t play terribly, I guess. They made it something of a contest in the second and third quarters, though the loss of Joel Embiid (facial contusion) probably helped a bit on that end.
Emmanuel Mudiay had his second consecutive strong game coming off the bench, scoring 22 points on 8-15 shooting. Here he is getting to the rim, which is a pretty cool thing I’d like to see him do more often.
Enes Kanter messed up his back in the first half after he was fouled on a dunk attempt, but he stayed in the game and gritted it out, dropping 17 points and 13 rebounds on the Sixers.
Frank Ntilikina struggled on offense, but shut down returning No. 1 overall pick Markelle Fultz on D, which was pretty nice to watch.
All in all, a fairly forgettable Wednesday evening. Recap to come.
