New York Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers Preview
76ers (2-1) head into this one off the back of a morale-boosting win vs Oklahoma Thunder whereas a deflated Knicks (2-1) tied the mini-series but lost the second of two games vs Orlando Magic at the weekend.
Despite all the dressing room unrest revolving around Australian star Ben Simmons, the 76ers defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder, 115-103. 76ers were dominant, posting a superior shooting percentage (47%) and taking the lion’s share of the rebounds.
Seth Curry was in particularly good form. In the 1st quarter alone, he hit six 3-pointers and finished the game with 28pts total. Curry has missed just two of 14 3-point attempts all season and is a player New York will need to mind carefully. Franchise star Joel Embiid played more of a supporting role in the Thunder game but still finished up with 22pts, six assists, and nine rebounds – he is questionable to take the court vs Knicks though.
The Knicks went on the road to get a W over Orlando Magic but then blew the chance to go 3-0 when they were outplayed at Madison Square Garden a couple of days later. A final quarter capitulation that saw Magic sink 36 points was the main cause of the defeat and something Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau will be hoping to avoid again tomorrow.
Despite the loss, the performance of Julius Randle was a definite positive for the Knicks. The power forward finished up with a double-double (30 points and 16 rebounds). Randle’s physicality and ability to make crunch plays will need to be closely marshaled by the 76ers. And they’ll need to be wary of Derrick Rose, too: the former Bulls ace finished up with 23pts, three assists, and looks back to something like the kind of player we all rated so highly before injuries robbed us of him in Chicago.
An early-season game between two 2-1 Eastern Conference teams is difficult to call. But it is worth noting that the 76ers have won the last five games on the bounce vs Knicks…
New York Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers Team News
Knicks have very few injury concerns heading into the 76ers game. Nerlens Noel is day to day to day with a knee injury but New York expects him to make the bench.
It’s not such great news for the 76ers, however. Contract-rebel Ben Simmons is definitely out with a back injury most likely sustained whilst picking up toys thrown out of the pram. Andre Drummond is questionable with an ankle injury; Grant Riller is out with a knee injury. Shake Milton has a sore ankle and, the biggest news of all, Joel Emblid is a big doubt after picking up a knee injury vs Thunder.
The 76ers without Ben Simmons is one thing. But the 76ers with no Simmons and, potentially, no Joel Emblid is a big deal.
This is the best that the New York Knicks have looked in quite some time, so we’re backing Derrick Rose and co. to beat the spread at Madison Square Garden tomorrow night against either a depleted or very depleted (if Emblid fails to play) 76ers offense.
Knicks to beat the -4.0 spread is our NBA Pick for Tuesday Night’s game.
