With Kemba Walker and Evan Fournier, the Knicks can do things they couldn’t last season.
Or, when it comes to beating the 76ers, the three seasons before that. The Knicks snap a 15-game losing streak in the series, their first victory since April 2017.

Kemba Walker led NYK with 19 points (5-for-11 from beyond the arc) in win over PHI. Five Knicks were in double figures. Club shot 43 percent from beyond the arc and held Joel Embiid to 14 points on 2-for-7 shooting. Solid bounce back for NYK after Sunday’s loss to ORL. – 10:04 PM

Really impressive Knicks win.
Also, know it’s early, but wins over the Sixers and Cs, who the Knicks will likely be fighting with for playoff positioning this season, could end up mattering – 9:53 PM
Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
Sixers fall to Knicks 112-99, falling to 2-2 on the season. That ends the Sixers 15 game winning streak against the Knicks.
Embiid had a dreadful game, the Knicks shot the ever living heck out of the ball in the second quarter, and the Sixers never got close after that. – 9:52 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Sixers lose to the Knicks for the first time in a long time, 110-97. 3-point line hurt them on both ends but also feel like got pretty badly outplayed in the middle two quarters.
They are 2-2. Four-game homestand up next: Detroit, Atlanta, Portland, Chicago. – 9:50 PM

Knicks travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls Thursday night. Chicago, at 4-0, is the only remaining undefeated team in East.
NY, at 3-1, is tied for East’s second-best record and lead the Atlantic.
Is this the most anticipated Knicks-Bulls game since Game 7 in 1994 playoffs??? – 9:48 PM
Fred Katz @FredKatz
Big thing for the Knicks:
Randle and Barrett are a combined 10-for-27 from the field and this team is still scoring well and efficiently against a good defense.
Knicks wanted offensive help? Well, Kemba Walker has five 3s. Evan Fournier has four. There’s your help right there. – 9:47 PM

Philly made a push to get this in range of single digits, only for the Knicks to push it back to 19.
Assuming this holds, impressive bounce back from the Knicks after a dud against Orlando here Sunday. And it sets up what should be a very fun game in Chicago Thursday night. – 9:30 PM

After a weekend of supportive messages from his teammates, Ben Simmons is back working out with the Philadelphia 76ers.
He’s also undergoing treatment for his mental health and his ailing back.

Derek Bodner @DerekBodnerNBA
The Sixers turn to their bread and butter (Andre Drummond bounce pass from beyond the 3-point line to a cutting Furkan Korkmaz for the reverse dunk) to cut the lead to 14 with 8:46 left. – 9:25 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
76ers got it down to 14 but it could’ve been closer, as it appeared Drummond was fouled. And now it could be further, as Doc went 3/4 across the court during a timeout to keep arguing and finally get a tech. – 9:25 PM

Honestly, Sixers had an outlier bad quarter and otherwise have been mostly fine tonight, save for Embiid continuing to shoot the ball like crap to start the year. Happens during a long season – 9:24 PM

Outside of the 3rd quarter against the Pelicans, Tyrese Maxey hasn’t shown much to suggest he’s ready to be a lead guard on a contributor.

Mitchell Robinson has talked a ton about all the muscle he put on in the offseason. This matchup tonight is exactly why. No one with Joel Embiid’s skill and strength. Curious to see how Robinson responds when Embiid goes at him. – 7:33 PM

I told Doc Rivers he made The Post’s list of Top 75 Knicks compiled by Mike Vaccaro. Doc: “Am I 3 or 4?” Me: “You came in 66.” Doc: “Jeez, I think that’s incorrect.” – 7:01 PM

Doc Rivers on @Matisse Thybulle:
“He looks good. He’s running the floor, he does things Matisse does. Offensively…I’m very happy with him. He’s a far better cutter and picker.
He works on [his shot], he puts the time into it. I believe he’ll become a better shooter each year.” – 6:05 PM

Ewing went on to score 23,665 points with the Knicks, the most in franchise history. No other Knick is within 9,000 points of his total. pic.twitter.com/qNkbhz0W7z4:01 PM

In NBA injury report posted at 2:30 pm, Nerlens Noel is listed as questionable for tonight’s game vs. PHI. That aligns with what Tom Thibodeau said yesterday. Noel has missed all NYK preseason and regular season games due to knee soreness/a hamstring ailment. – 3:07 PM
