Derrick Williams also dropped in 17 points off the bench to help spark the Knicks offense.

Rookie Jahlil Okafor led the Sixers with 20. Even though the Sixers lost the game Okafor out played Porzingis who only scored 8 points.”For me, it’s exciting to go up against those guys,” Porzingis said. “We went through the draft process together and played in the summer league and now to go against them in the regular season is exciting. You can test yourself playing against those guys.”

It was the second straight game Porzingis clashed against another top rookie. The 7-foot-3 Porzingis blocked seven shots in a 107-102 win over Minnesota and No. 1 overall pick Karl-Anthony Towns on Wednesday.

When Porzingis was asked by a reporter to give himself a grade for his performance vs. Towns and Okafor, O’Quinn butted in from the next locker over. “He didn’t even go to school,” O’Quinn said, drawing laughs. “He doesn’t know how the grading system works.”

The Knicks built their lead to 30 in the second half. But the Sixers closed the game on a 29-9 run to make it a competitive game.

The Knicks will try to win their fourth straight game tonight against Jimmy Butler and the Bulls. The Sixers will try to win there second game of the season tonight against the Cavs.
