Takeaways from the Sixers’ 90-87 win over the New York Knicks: Late-game N.Y. lapses costly; Furkan Korkmaz strikes again.


Article Summary:

Sixers swingman Furkan Korkmaz, coming off a career-high 24-point effort in Friday’s 100-89 win over the Chicago Bulls, should have received extra scrutiny. In the fourth quarter the Knicks fell asleep and Korkmaz scored on an inbounds pass from Simmons. In the first half, the Sixers outscored the Knicks, 12-3, in fast-break points and extended that difference to 18-3 through three quarters and finished with a 20-5 advantage.
