Joel Embiid led the Philadelphia 76ers past New York Knicks

New York, November 29: The Philadelphia 76ers have started to hit their stride in the NBA, beating the New York Knicks on Wednesday (November 28).

With their 117-91 win over the Knicks, Philadelphia have now won six of their last seven games and seven of their last nine since acquiring Jimmy Butler. The team's record stands at 15-8 this season.

More impressively though, with the win at Wells Fargo Center, the 76ers are now 11-1 on their home court.

Joel Embiid led the 76ers with 26 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists in the 26-point win. JJ Redick had 24 points while Ben Simmons had 14 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

"I'd say, we're just getting better," Simmons said after the game. "We're further along in the season. Jimmy is adapting a lot better, adapting to our plays defensively, our calls. Just staying together as a team."

Westbrook wonderful for Thunder

Russell Westbrook scored 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting while grabbing 19 rebounds and 15 assists in the Thunder's 100-83 win over the Cavaliers.
