But these are not your older brother’s Knicks. They important the backcourt duo of Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier to resurrect a moribund offense. They certainly did that on Tuesday as the Knicks snapped a 15-game losing streak to Philly. Your final is 112-99, New York.
The story of the game was Walker, who shook off a rough start and blitzed the Sixers in the second and third quarters. Kemba led all Knicks with 19 points on 7-15 shooting.
Kemba was complimented by Fournier’s 18 points.
When the Knicks couldn’t buy a bucket late, they turned to Fournier, who got the job done in his own weird way.
Mitchell Robinson helped hold Joel Embiid to 14 points on 2-7 shooting. Just check out this grown-ass-man rebound and the nifty pass to a cutting Immanuel Quickley.
Once again, Julius Randle and RJ Barrett were not particularly good, and once again it did not matter. The Knicks are deep, y’all.
Recap to come.
