Mario Hezonja and Enes Kanter scored 17 points each for the Knicks while Damyean Dotson added 16 off the bench. The rest of the team finished in single digits in another game where shooting went horrible.
The Knicks shot under 35% from the field, with Tim Hardaway Jr. going 1-11.
“We didn’t have an answer for any of them. That was a focused team, they came out with really good focus. We just got blitzed and we really didn’t have an answer for anything they did.”
– David Fizdale
The Sixers, who added Jimmy Butler on their roster, were led by Joel Embiid’s 26 points and 14 rebounds. JJ Reddick followed with 24 buckets including four threes.
This was Knicks’ 9th road game in the past 12, a difficult path, but will return to the Garden for four of the next five matchups.
