The New York Knicks (33-20) snapped a season-long, four-game losing streak by taking down the 22-32 Philadelphia 76ers, 99-93, in Madison Square Garden on Sunday night.
The Sixers actually outscored the Knicks by six in the second half of this game, but New York was able to hold on after a big second quarter saw them outscore the 76ers, 28-18.
This was despite Jrue Holiday's best efforts. The All-Star turned in 30 points, five rebounds and five assists for the 76ers. Yet, here are the Sixers as losers of five straight.
