(27-16) Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks (10-32)
Sunday, January 13 finds the Philadelphia 76ers facing the. New York Knicks as they meet for the third time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Friday, the Knicks lost to the Pacers. The 76ers last played on Friday in a loss to the Hawks.
The 76ers swept the Knicks last season, have won both meetings this year to build a six game consecutive win streak over New York. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks in 250 of their 451 matches.
The 76ers loss to the Hawks highlighted a few areas of weakness the team was already aware of. Key among them is their big three stars may dominate but adding Jimmy Butler cost the team a big portion of their depth.
So on night’s when one of them is missing it adds extra pressure on the two who do play. When the missing piece is Joel Embiid that factor increases exponentially.
Another issue which the team is navigating is the constant press surrounding any little comment made. Following the loss Ben Simmons referred to the team as being too soft, Jimmy Butler refused to rubber stamp this sentiment.
This likely having more to do with the bright spotlight on anything Butler says or does with any remote negative connotation.
Amir Johnson was hampered by a migraine and also missed the Hawks game. Both Embiid and Johnson are questionable for Sunday.
The update on Markelle Fultz’s situation (shoulder) is the team expects him back by the end of the month.
Justin Patton (foot) and Zhaire Smith (foot/allergies) remain out with no definitive return date.
New York Knicks
Seven different Knicks scored in double digits in the loss to the Pacers. Emmanuel Mudiay led the way with 21 points.
The Knicks have won just once in their past nine games and while they are lottery bound Head Coach David Fizdale continues to help grow the Knicks young assets with a view to figuring out which of them could help form the base of their future foundation.
Three Knicks are questionable for Sunday’s match – Enes Kanter (illness), Frank Ntilikina (ankle) and Mitchell Robinson (ankle and groin).
Kristaps Porzingis (knee) remains out with a projected return date of sometime this February.
