Kyle Kover rains a career-high 31 points on the Knicks. In the words of Mars Blackmon (in the classic Nike commercial) ... It's gotta be the shoes! Kyle's been strugglin' lately with a bad toe and the trainers have been working with him to find the right shoe. Well it appears they finally got it right. He was launching the ball 3' behind the 3 point line and scorching the nets. He shot 6 for 7 from beyond the arc and beat the Knicks all by himself.
New York played the night before, but got off to a good start. But the Sixers never trailed after Korver took over in the second period. There was a large New York contingent at the game tonite. So a 20 point win was sweet. Especially after they started to raise a ruckus when their squad made a late run. Curious thing ... there were lotsa Knicks jerseys in the crowd. Guess what number was most prominent? Number 11 ... Jamal Crawford. Go figure.
