Stoudemire helps Knicks past Sixers
Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Amar'e Stoudemire had 21 points in the New York Knicks' 102-92 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday.
Carmelo Anthony added 18 points, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Knicks, who have won four in a row.
New York guard J.R. Smith tallied 14 points and six assists in his return to the lineup. Smith was fined $50,000 by the NBA Wednesday for recurring instances of unsportsmanlike conduct. Against the Heat on Thursday, the big story wasn't so much the 102-92 victory, as much as head coach Mike Woodson's decision to bench a healthy Smith for the entire game.
Spencer Hawes and James Anderson each had 17 points for the Sixers, who have dropped four straight since a four-game winning streak. Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner donated 15 and 12 points, respectively.
