Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks: Postgame Grades, Analysis for New York

The New York Knicks took another step toward proving that having the oldest team in the league doesn't mean they can't take down the young bucks. Of course, having Carmelo Anthony scoring at will doesn't hurt too much either.

New York is sitting pretty with wins over Miami and Philadelphia early in the season and has done so with an ultra-small starting lineup in the absence of Amar'e Stoudemire.

With Carmelo going all-out in these games and the team actually looking like they have a nice flow, it's going to be interesting to see what they do once Stoudemire returns, but for now everything seems to be coming up roses for the Knicks.

A nice balance of productivity from the starting lineup and help off the bench has allowed them to jump out to this quick start.

New York's win over Philly comes on the front end of a home-and-home series with the 76ers, as they'll travel to Philadelphia tomorrow to play them in the Wells Fargo Center.

There's a lot to like about the first two games from the Knicks, but it should also be noted that this game was against the 76ers without Andrew Bynum, and they will be a completely different team with him on the floor.

That being said, let's shake out just how well each part of this Knicks lineup fared in this game.
