It’s an Eastern Conference showdown on Saturday Night in the Big Apple.
The shorthanded Philadelphia 76ers travel to New York to take on the Knicks.
This is the second meeting between the two teams this season. The 76ers won the first match up 98-97.
Well it looks like the Philadelphia 76ers will have to wait until next year to get another key piece of their team back.
It was announced on Friday that Ben Simmons would be held out the rest of this season for precautionary reasons.
Injuries are nothing new to this team though, that has been the story for the 76ers this season. They have five players who are either questionable or out for Saturdays game against the Knicks.
The biggest injury for the 76ers is Joel Embiid. A knee injury that appeared to be minor has turned into something much more.
Now it is expected he will be out until at least the beginning of March, if not later. I wouldn’t be surprised to see the 76ers hold him out the rest of the season too.
For the 76ers to win this game they need big contributions from their bench. They will be coming into this game in the second end of the back to back. That makes it even more key that the bench steps up big in this game.
The 76ers come into this game with a record of 8-19.
New York Knicks
The trade deadline came and went and with all the rumors swirling, Carmelo Anthony is still a member of the Knicks. Now if he will stay a member after this season is another story but the important thing now, is he still able to contribute now.
It’s even more important that Anthony is still a member of the team as Kristaps Porzingis went down with an injury Thursday against the Cavaliers.
He went down with a sprained ankle and left the arena in a walking boot. He is officially doubtful for Saturday’s game and it would be a shocker if he was able to go.
For the Knicks to win this game they need to push the pace of this game. Carmelo really needs to have a big game and lead the charge on that end of the ball.
At Madison Square Gardens this season the Knicks have played okay. They come into this game with a 14-15 record.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
These two teams are pretty similar on paper. They both have injuries to their big men that will really hurt them in this game. I think the Knicks will have the advantage being at home. I think the Knicks will win in a game that comes down to the final minutes.
