I know the Knicks are only 3-3 this season after today’s loss, but it’s a bit early to start booing the team off the court. Be patient New York, this team is leaps and bounds better than the last few years. And losing to the Sixers isn’t as bad as it used to be either. I know Iggy was out of the lineup due to injury, but he had more than a suitable replacement in Evan Turner. Not to mention Elton Brand appears to be ‘back’ in a sense…
Elton Brand scored 20 points, Lou Williams and Jrue Holiday each had 19, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the New York Knicks 106-96 on Sunday.
Evan Turner, the No. 2 pick and last season’s college player of the year, added 14 points and 10 rebounds in his first NBA start as the 76ers snapped the Knicks’ two-game winning streak. Turner started in place of Andre Iguodala, who was out with a strained right Achilles’ tendon.
It was the fourth straight game with 20 or more for the resurgent Brand, his best stretch since late in the 2006-07 season, before he came to Philadelphia.
Amare Stoudemire had 21 points and 15 rebounds for the Knicks, who managed just 15 points in the fourth quarter. After consecutive wins, they heard boos as they walked off the floor at 3-3.
