With eight minutes to go in the third quarter, the 76ers built up a 26-point lead. As expected, the Knicks were unable to overcome such a huge deficit and fell 126-111.
Tonight was the clash between two of the premier tanking teams in the NBA. In the blue corner was the New York Knicks, leading the Zion Williamson standings with an appalling record of 10-45. In the red corner was the Cleveland Cavaliers with a dreadful record of 11-45.
