A Continuation of Owning New York

I can't speak for the Flyers, but the Phillies, Eagles and now 76ers are OWNING  New York teams in recent history.

The Sixers are now 3-0 against the Knicks this year after the 116-110 win at the Wach tonight in front of a pretty decent crowd, albeit it was "Phillies Night."

It is the 76ers eighth win in nine games, making them 12-7 under Tony DiLeo. They were up 15 points in the first quarter, gave the lead away in the second quarter, but fought the feisty Knicks in the second half to pull out the W. 

Also, it was Elton Brand's first game in about a month. He came off the bench and played approximately 13 minutes. He was 3-4 from the floor for six points. 

But the big stars for the Sixers were Andre Iguodala with 24 points, Andre Miller with 21 points and Thaddeus Young with 17 points. 

And believe it or not, Samuel Dalembert played very well, scoring 10 points but more importantly grabbing 17 rebounds in 35 minutes. He had the biggest plus/minus on the floor tonight with a plus 21. 

The Sixers return to the floor Monday in New Orleans at 8 p.m. The Hornets are a very good team in the West. It will be interesting to see how they play against this caliber of a team during their recent hot streak.
