SIXERS VS. NEW YORK KNICKS

< View All Match Ups

The history between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks dates back more than 60 years, and started when both franchises called the Empire State home. In the first NBA season, the Syracuse Nationals and the Knicks played twice, with the team that would eventually become the Sixers sweeping the series.

Since then, the teams have played 462 times in the regular season (the 76ers have a 259-204 record) and 34 times in the postseason (21-12), most notably in the 1983 Eastern Conference semifinals, before the Julius Erving, Moses Malone, and the Sixers would go on to win the NBA Championship.

Most recently in 76ers history, James Harden made his home debut in Philadelphia against the Knicks on Wednesday, March 2, 2022, and recorded a near triple double - 26 points, 9 rebounds, and 9 assists.

HIGHLIGHTS

In his first home game as a Philadelphia 76er, James Harden lived up to every bit of the hype. The 10-time NBA All Star and former league MVP came up just shy of his second triple-double in three games, dropping 26 points, grabbing 9 rebounds, and dishing out 9 assists in the win. His new teammates, Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey, more than contributed, combining for another 52 points.
