The Philadelphia 76ers were at Madison Square Garden tonight to take on the New York Knicks and though Philly got the W for the night, it came with some highlights from the KNICKSTAPE young core. Most specifically rookie Kevin Knox.
With four minutes left in the second quarter, DeAndre Jordan found Knox cutting to the basket for a thunderous slam. His victim: Ben Simmons. Simmons tried to make a defensive play and block it but failed miserably.
Look at how DeAndre reacted to the slam too. Hilarious.
Young Kevin only finished with 9 points and 1 rebound, so it wasn’t a monster game for him against the Sixers, but it was sure a crazy highlight.
Simmons finished with 18 points and 7 assists, while Tobias Harris dropped 25 points and Joel Embiid finished with 26 points and 14 rebounds. Jimmy Butler also added a cool 13 points and 8 rebounds on the night.
