Knicks get the win in Philly, 107-97

The Knicks visited last night Philadelphia after winning home against Karl-Anthony Town’s Timberwolves, the second straight game for Kirstaps Porzingis to play against a fellow rookie, selected ahead of him.

Jahlil Okafor had the higher numbers, but Porzingis walked away with the win – 107-97. Okafor had 20 points and 5 rebounds while Porzingis finished with 8 points, 4 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.

“For me, it’s exciting to go up against those guys. We went through the draft process together and played in the summer league and now to go against them in the regular season is exciting. You can test yourself.”
