The New York Knicks beat the Philadelphia 76ers 80-71. Eddy Curry had 15 points and 9 rebounds in 22 minutes. Curry is fitting in well for the new and improved Knicks. I like his rebound abilites and you can't tell Curry had a heart problem last year. Trevor Ariza had only 2 points but added a big boost with 9 rebounds plus Ariza played 20 minutes. Matt Barnes had 13 points and 6 rebounds in 28 minutes. Quentin Richardson didn't play because of strained left hamstring. The Knicks had 32 turnovers compared to 76ers only 18. Lee Nailon was edjected and only played 4 minutes. Kyle Korver had 7 points and 8 rebounds in 42 minutes. Korver has improved a lot in his rebounding. That will be key for the 76ers. Allen Iverson didn't play with a knee injury. Chris Webber had 12 points and 8 rebounds in 34 minutes. Webber should be looking forward to a full year with the young but good 76ers. Louis Williams had 9 points and 4 steals in 22 minutes. This is good win to keep the Knicks spirit up but with the Answer out it was an easy win.
