On Thursday March 15 the Philadelphia 76ers arrive at Madison Square Garden to face their host the New York Knicks. In their last game the 76ers lost a tightly contested battle against the Pacers. The Knicks lost to another of the lottery bound squads in a bit of a blow out to the Mavericks.
Last season the teams split the season series, while the 76ers hold a 2-0 edge this season. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Knicks in 246 of their 447 matches.
The last time the 76ers played in the Mecca it was Christmas Day when the beat the Knicks. At that time Kristaps Porzingis was still playing and helping his squad toward a potential playoff berth while Joel Embiid was dealing with back spasms.
Almost three months later the situation for both squads is drastically different. Embiid is healthy, playing in back to back games and leading his squad to the postseason while the Knicks star is lost for the season.
Still, the Sixers who have an easier schedule have failed to make much of a rise up the ranks despite adding veterans through the buyout market. Philly sit in sixth a game back of the Wizards and a half game up on the Bucks.
Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee tendinitis) missed the Pacers game and is questionable for this match.
New York Knicks
Facing a team on the rise is tough for the Knicks who had their own big man star leading the way until his ACL injury removed him for the season.
With his loss the Knicks have conceded their postseason hopes and are focused on gaining experience for their youngsters and developing a style which they’ll bring into next season.
In the loss to the Mavericks, New York scored just 12 points in the third quarter. Four players reached double digit scoring. Starters Hardaway (19) and Mudiay (10) made their mark but the other three starters combined for just six points total.
Michael Beasley (21) and Trey Burke (16) did their best off the bench to help the Knicks, but wins are few and far between of late with 16 losses in their past 17 games.
Adding more angst to the Knicks chances Tim Hardaway exited the previous game with an ankle sprain and may not suit up for the Sixers match. He joins Porzingis and Ron Baker on the disabled list.
