Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Squeak Out a Victory in Madison Square Garden
The Philadelphia Sixers barely squeak out a victory against the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. Marcus Morris almost delivered a dagger to send the Sixers home packing, but Tobias Harris hit a three-pointer with under a minute left and the defense swarmed the Knicks to force a turnover to secure the win. It should never have came to that and they scored a total of 38 points in the second half as a team. I don't know what it is when it comes to dominating lesser opponents, but they don't know how to do it. The Sixers snapped a six game road losing streak with this win though. Ben Simmons recorded 21 points, eight assists, and seven rebounds. Furkan Korkmaz provided spark once again scoring 17 points off the bench in 22 minutes. Josh Richardson was +17 and led the team in scoring in the fourth quarter.
