Player of the Game: Jrue Holiday
Holiday was on fire. He scored a career-high 35 points, and he was an efficient 16-of-25. He also added six assists, five rebounds and a steal for good measure.
If the 76ers are going to turn around their season, now is a great time. This was the first game of an eight-game homestand. They will host the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday and the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the Knicks will get a little home cooking of their own now, as they are returning to the Garden for a five-game homestand that begins by hosting the Magic on Wednesday.
