New York Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers
Saturday, January 18 – 19:30 EST – Madison Square Garden
The Knicks are on a series of poor results lately as they have lost seven out of their last eight matches. Tonight, they face another difficult task against a motivated 76ers team. More importantly, New York have lost their last ten consecutive matches against Philadelphia. Besides their recent shortcomings, the Knicks are 6-14 at home this season. Offensively, they are averaging 105.95 points per game at the Madison Square Garden, ranking 28th in the league. Defensively, the Knicks are conceding 111.55 points per game, ranking 20th in the league. Julius Randle is the man to watch for New York. He leads the team in points (19.0), assists (3.2), and rebounds (9.1).
On the other hand, the 76ers are coming off an important win against the Bulls last night. They will now travel to New York to extend their winning streak. Philadelphia have been dominant on their home ground, however they have failed to provide the same success when playing on the road. They are currently on a six game losing streak when playing away, and this will be a great opportunity for them to break this trend. Offensively, the 76ers are averaging 106.38 points per game on their travels, ranking 23rd in the league. Defensively, they are conceding 109.33 points per game, ranking 10th in the league. With Joel Embiid still out on injury, expect Tobias Harris and Ben Simmons to rise up to the occasion. Despite the 76ers being in a back to back situation, we still like them to come out on top tonight.
