National Basketball Association pocket book: 76ers signal veteran Belinelli

The Philadelphia 76ers secured a fourth consecutive win on Monday night as they easily overcame the New York Knicks 108-92 at home.

"Joel just wouldn't let it go", McConnell said.

McConnell's triple-double was historic - there's no getting around that. Despite the struggles of the Hawks over the first part of the season, the Italian managed to average 11.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2 assists per game (pg), allowing him to still be an attraction for high-profile teams across the league.

So far this season, McConnell has averaged 7.4 points, 4.5 assists and 3.3 assists per game and has been a spark off the bench for a surging Sixers team that could see a spot in the playoffs. After the game, McConnell joked that Embiid was continuously encouraging him to look for that final rebound.

Philly had six players in double figures - led by Dario Saric who posted 24 points - but the night belonged to T.J. McConnell. "It was like it was in slow motion".

"If we want to go where we want to", Embiid said of the third-year performer in his remarks to reporters, "he'll be one of those reasons".

The sale was disclosed in a legal filing with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through the SEC website . Following the completion of the acquisition, the director now owns 10,149 shares of the company's stock, valued at $751,431.96.

The Sixers are the ninth team for the Italian, who had one of his best seasons in 2013-14 with San Antonio, when he made 43 percent of his 3-point attempts and helped the Spurs to the National Basketball Association title.

"You really respect him", coach Brett Brown told reporters. "He's a wonderful lesson for so many basketball players in relation to what determination, perseverance, toughness can bring you to". The New York Knicks have lost seven of their last eight road games. Goran Dragic scored 28 points, while James Johnson had 16.

Seeing someone like McConnell finish with 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists was exciting, but also it should be noted that the former Arizona star didn't even start the game, making this accomplishment even more impressive. Robert Covington now leads the team in three-point attempts per game, with an even seven per contest. "We didn't show the necessary poise to execute with a objective. That's not our formula, to win in a shootout".

Sixers rookie guard Markelle Fultz, the top pick in the 2017 draft, has missed all but four games this season with what the team has described as a shoulder injury.

The point guard made franchise history as he became the first Sixers player to notch a triple-double off the bench.
