It wasn't pretty, but the New York Knicks scrapped their way to a 99-93 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday night.

The win snaps a four-game losing streak for Mike Woodson's bunch, while the Sixers have now lost five-straight, and fall to 10 games below .500 with the loss.

While he wasn't particularly efficient, Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 29 points on 6-of-18 shooting. Amar'e Stoudemire also played a significant role in the Knicks' win over the Sixers, dropping in 22 points on 9-of-10 shooting.

Fourth-year point guard Jrue Holiday poured in 30 points on 50 percent shooting, but his shining performance wasn't enough to carry the Sixers on a night when his team shot a meager 42.4 percent from the field.

Holiday's backcourt mate Evan Turner battled all night long, but was largely inefficient, scoring 21 points on 18 shots.

Up next for the Knicks is a meeting with the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday, while the Sixers are set to do battle with the Orlando Magic on Tuesday.
