NEW YORK - The 76ers came to the Big Apple for two things. They wanted to pay tribute to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. They also hoped to beat the New York Knicks.

In a surprising move, rookie center Jahlil Okafor, despite scoring a team-high 20 points, was sidelined in the fourth quarter and both overtimes. The visitors dropped to 5-38 after suffering their fourth consecutive loss in the series with their Atlantic Division rivals.

The 76ers came up short in their quest to treat fans to an all-around enjoyable night. The team hired singer-songwriter Montell Jordan to sing the national anthem and perform at halftime Thursday. Actor George Lopez playfully proclaimed, "In three years, the Sixers will win the championship in the NBA" when he was introduced to the crowd. And fans kept trying to get pictures of Philly hip-hop artist Meek Mill, who was seated courtside. But the Sixers were unable to treat their fans to victory in a 115-111 overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls at the Wells Fargo Center.
