New York Knicks
The Knicks got blown out in their first game without Kristaps Porzingis, at least in the first game since he tore his ACL.
Kyle O’Quinn stepped in to start at center for New York. He played 26 minutes. Isiah Hicks and Luke Kornet will see increased playing time off the bench and have the last 30ish games to impress somebody.
New York dealt Doug McDermott at the trade deadline for what basically amounted as Emmanuel Mudiay. Mudiay will make his Knicks debut in this game on Monday night, wearing no. 1.
New York has lost five in a row, sunk to ten games under .500 and are in a complete free-fall at this point. You would have to have a heck of a reason to back the Knicks at this point.
Unless that’s reason enough. The Knicks are terrible but often times their terribleness is overestimated by the general public. Call me crazy, but the Knicks could be a team to back down the stretch due to reverse psychology alone.
Philadelphia stood pat at the trade deadline but did make one of the first moves of the post-deadline shuffle, getting a commitment from Marco Belinelli, who was let go by the Hawks last week.
Belinelli has yet to sign and won’t play in this game but he will add some shooting and scoring punch off the bench for Philly as it makes a push toward the playoffs.
The Sixers are almost locked into the playoffs. They are still fighting with playoff-hopefuls like Detroit and, to a lesser extent, Charlotte. But it feels like the 76ers are good enough to be in the playoffs and should hold onto their positioning.
Really, all but the first two positions in the Eastern Conference are up for grabs. Philly is probably too far out of the three, with too many teams to pass, but it could realistically finish anywhere in the bottom half of the standings.
The Sixers got beat three out of four by Boston this season but the games were competitive. Same deal against Toronto, though the Raptors were a little more dominant than the Celtics.
Surely, Philadelphia would love to get into the six slot, or even the five, and play in a series that would feel a lot more unpredictable than one against one of those two tough division foes.
