Holiday scores career-best 35, Sixers slam Knicks

Updated: January 26, 2013

Jrue Holiday justified his recent
selection to the Eastern Conference All-Star team with a career-high night,
leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 97-80 rout of the New York Knicks at Wells
Fargo Center.

Shaking off a 3-for-12, nine-point performance in Tuesday’s loss at Milwaukee,
Holiday racked up a personal-best 35 points along with six assists to enable
the 76ers to avenge a pair of double-digit losses to the Atlantic Division-
leading Knicks earlier in the season.

Evan Turner and Nick Young added 20 points each to help Philadelphia win for
only the third time in its last 11 outings.

Carmelo Anthony paced the Knicks with 25 points, but went just 9-of-28 from
the floor, and New York shot a poor 34.6 percent as a team while never leading
at any stage.

Amare Stoudemire did make 8-of-13 field goal attempts in turning in a season-
best 20-point effort off the bench during the setback.
