Knicks Slip Past Sixers For 5th Straight Win

Amare Stoudemire had 21 points and nine rebounds to lead the New York Knicks to their fifth straight victory, 82-79 over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night.

Jeremy Lin scored 18 points and Carmelo Anthony had 10 to help the Knicks pull within three games of the Atlantic Division leaders.

Elton Brand had 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers. Jrue Holiday scored 16.

The game ended with thousands of New York fans chanting, “Let’s go Knicks!” They had reason to celebrate after Stoudemire hit a pair of big buckets down the stretch to clinch the win.

Each team was backed by a heavyweight A-list supporter: Co-owner Will Smith rooted on the Sixers and Spike Lee sat adjacent to the Knicks bench.
