Pre-Season: Sixers Dominate Knicks in Finale

Box Score

Posting and Toasting

The Knicks – a team full of hyalophobics to begin with – were without Amare Stoudemire, Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler tonight. Nonetheless, it was nice to finally see the Sixers dominate every facet of a game from start to finish. The pre-season's over and every game from here on out counts. Whether it counts toward ping pong balls or a low playoff seed is to be determined. 

Here are a few observations:

  • The starting lineup of Holiday, Iguodala, Kapono, Brand and Battie was extremely effective. Kapono's ability to shoot the three and space the floor fit perfect next to Holiday and Iguodala, and as sad as it is, Battie looked like the only big capable of rebounding and/or defending on the roster. Don't be surprised if this lineup is used opening night against the Heat.
  • Evan Turner shot the ball only once in 19 minutes, and didn't attempt a free throw. He has to become more aggressive offensively, plain and simple. 
Up next: GAME 1 vs. HEAT on WEDNESDAY!
