Knicks end disappointing season with in over Sixers
Two of the worst team in the East ended their season in one of the most exciting games of the night. The lead changed 5 times in the last minute of the game at the end of which the Knicks won 114-113, splitting the series with Philadelphia.
The crowd cheered for Carmelo Anthony’s name in the fourth quarter trying to get him back on the floor but he didn’t return after Hornacek took him out late in the third quarter.
Anthony finished with 17 points as a starter in what might have been his last game in a Knicks uniform. He did not ruled out, however, the possibility of returning under certain conditions:
“I would love to be back. But there’s some things I would love to see different. Kind of just the mentality, just a winning mentality and wanting to win and being committed to that.”
Justin Holiday led the Knicks off the bench scoring 20 points while Marshall Plumlee had his first double double, with 14 points and 11 rebounds.
Chasson Randle got 26 minutes and dropped 12 points and Willy Herhangomez as the starting center ended up with 7 points and 10 boards.
