New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers: Postgame Grades and Analysis
Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

For the second day in a row, the Knicks dismantled the Philadelphia 76ers as they clobbered the Sixers on their home court, 110-88. 

It was the Knicks' third consecutive win by double digits to open the season, the first time in franchise history they've accomplished that, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, as mentioned during the MSG broadcast.   

Philadelphia jumped out to 12-2 lead to start the game, but steady defense and a well-executed offense turned things around, and the Knicks dominated the rest of the game

In all, the Knicks had seven players reach double figures, turned the ball over only seven times and played outstanding team ball throughout the game.

New York has shown remarkable chemistry for a team with three of its starters in their first year with the team. Their defensive rotations kept the Sixers taking bad shots all night long, while offensively, they worked the ball and created open shots all over the court.

While all the grades here for both teams are for individuals, the real winner of this game and the biggest "A" goes to the Knicks' teamwork.
