Philly Sports Live:
Sunday’s 106-94 victory over the faltering New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden marked the third win in a row for the suddenly resurgent 76ers.
Lou Williams came off bench to score 28. Evan Turner posted yet another double-double, finishing with 25 points. Oh, yeah. The guy that Doug Collins says is his team’s best rebounder pulled down a career-high 15.
The Sixers (25-17) don’t play again until Wednesday when they play at Indiana.
But just as noteworthy as the victory is the continuing downward spiral that the Knicks’ season is rapidly becoming.
They have gone from Linsation to flat-out lousy in no time flat. The Sixers took away the Knicks’ will to compete in the third quarter when they outscored them 38-24. Having seen enough, Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni benched New York’s purported superstars Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire.
But D’Antoni’s benching of his best players didn’t necessarily pull the bright lights of Broadway off of him. The loss was their fifth in a row, the...
BEST OF MAXIM
PAY THE MAN
J.R. Smith hasn't exactly made the best impression since signing with the Knicks. He can now add a fine from the NBA to his resume.
The Knicks' management reportedly did not get Carmelo Anthony's seal of approval before bringing in J.R. Smith when he returned last month from China.
After hopes were running high for the New York Knicks heading into the All-Star break, they have since been shot down after starting the second half of the shortened season 1-5. Moreover, Jeremy Lin’s gaudy numbers have since been brought down to a more realistic, yet respectable 16.8 ppg and 8.1 apg.
The biggest issue concerning the Knicks however is not their point guard. It’s...
Carmelo Anthony and the New York Knicks just don’t seem to be working out. Linsanity has nearly died ever since Carmelo’s return from injury and so has the Knicks momentum. Unfortunately for both parties involved, Carmelo’s trade stock is at an all time low.
It’s not a surprise that J.R. Smith is a “personality” ……..that personality carries itself over from the hardwood onto twitter, where lately he has been in a tweeting “three-way” with Rapper Joe Budden, Joe’s ex-girlfriend Tahiry. Essentially, J.R. Smith was hitting Joe Budden’s old box. Smith tweeted this just a few days ago: Yes, [...]
Taking on the Bucks in Milwaukee on Friday night, the Knicks' simply couldn't end Steve Novak's homecoming on a high note.In Novak's first game back in his hometown since becoming a bit of a household name, the Knicks let the Bucks' offense torch them, falling by a final score of 119-114.After struggling earlier in the week, losing to contending teams, the contest...
It’s pretty simple for anyone watching the last few weeks of Knickerbocker basketball. They’ve just got to admit it to themselves: Carmelo Anthony is not helping. In news that many could have anticipated, he’s a terrible fit for a Mike D’Antoni offense. It’s about ball movement. He, is not about such things. And then, there’s the defensive end.
In Monday night's NBA game from Chicago, Bulls guard Derrick Rose thought he had an easy layup after he dribbled past New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin. However, Lin makes a real nice defensive play with a block from behind, showing that he hasn't completely fallen off the face of the earth.
However, Rose got the last laugh as the top scorer in the game with 32 points...
J.R. Smith has so far struggled to fit in with the Knicks.
J.R. Smith, he of the 38% fg percentage and 55% ft percentage, is $25,000 lighter for tweeting an 'inappropriate' photo of a big ole butt and the world's worst television.
Every time you check your...

its amare who looks worthless out there..
The Knicks gave up an average of 22 more points during their most recent two losses against the Spurs and Bucks.
It’s all about face time when it comes to seating celebrities at Madison Square Garden for the New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers game. You think ...
I'm not going to sugar coat this one. We're gonna lose. We should lose to the Bulls who have the BEST record in the Association. Could we win? Sure. Any team can win on any given night. But I just don't think it's in the cards for us tonight. When a good team gets up to play us we know the results (see Miami game).
Unless Melo finally gets his...
