The Knicks embrace OG Anunoby again and return to winning

Important victory for the Knicks, who reunited OG Anunoby after 18 games of absence and kept their opponents under 80 points scored for the third consecutive game (this hadn’t happened since 2000-01). Jalen Brunson scores 20 points and the returning Anunoby adds 14 to win all the quarters against the Sixers, who shoot terribly (37.5% from the field and 24% from three) do not go beyond the 19 of Kelly Oubre and the 17 of Tyrese Maxey on his return after four games of absence due to a concussion.

Leading the Knicks in terms of desire and energy is once again Josh Hart, who signed his fourth triple double of the season, finishing with 20 points, 19 rebounds and 10 assists. The hosts’ only moment of difficulty came with a 9-2 run by the Sixers to start the third quarter and get back to -10, but it was immediately managed with a 15-2 run to definitively close the score by flying on +26.
