Knicks visit Atlantic Division-rival Philadelphia

(Sports Network) – The Philadelphia 76ers conclude their seven-game homestand
tonight when they welcome the Atlantic Division rival New York Knicks to the
Wachovia Center.

The Sixers fell to 2-4 on their stand before the All-Star break when they were
defeated by the Washington Wizards, 92-85, last Wednesday. Kyle Korver led the
76ers with 18 points off the bench, while Andre Iguodala scored 14 points,
handed out 13 helpers and grabbed eight rebounds.

Andre Miller and Rodney Carney each contributed 13 points and Samuel Dalembert
donated 11 points with 17 rebounds as Philadelphia dropped its third straight

Philadelphia is currently 9-15 at home this year, but will play its next two
tilts on the road, starting with a game in Charlotte on Friday.

The Knicks were just in action on Tuesday when they recorded a 100-94 win over
Orlando behind 20 points each by Jamal Crawford and Eddy Curry.

Quentin Richardson added 15 points and David Lee had 14 points and 16 boards
for the Knicks, who have won four of their last six. Stephon Marbury also had
14 points.

The Knicks, who are 10-17 on the road this season, now find themselves just
three games out of a playoff spot. The team will return home to host Milwaukee
on Friday.

The teams have split two meetings so far this season. Philadelphia won the
first matchup on December 23 before the Knicks snapped a four-game series
losing streak with a 106-99 win on January 10.

The 76ers have won four in a row at home against the Knicks.
