On Sunday, March 21st, Atlantic division foes the Philadelphia 76ers and New York Knicks meet for the third and final time this season. Philly took both previous games winning 109-89 on December 26th and just this week 99-96 on March 16th.
Philly has one of the longest current win streaks versus the Knicks with 14 victories in a row.
The 76ers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 258 wins in 459 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with the 76ers sweeping the series.
Even without Joel Embiid, the 76ers have played well but the road has been the issue for this club as it was last season.
This match marks the first of a six-game road trip as well as 10 of their next 12 matches. The 76ers will need to find their road warriors especially if their big man doesn’t return by month-end.
And the first game comes against their own Atlantic division rival who pushed them on Tuesday despite playing in the second game of a back-to-back set. This time it’s the 76ers who’ll be on in that position.
However, the 76ers disposed of the Sacramento Kings early in their Saturday match allowing Doc Rivers to play deep into his bench.
As it was he needed to go with more of a reserve unit as Ben Simmons was a late scratch Saturday due to knee soreness. Seth Curry was also out Saturday with an ankle injury. Both are questionable for Sunday while Embiid (knee) remains out.
Without three starters Tobias Harris stepped up and was just two assists shy of a triple-double. He also led Philly in scoring with 29 points, 11 rebounds, eight assists, and two steals. An impressive stat line achieved in 30 minutes.
Dwight Howard registered a double-double of 10 points and 13 rebounds. Shake Milton (28), Danny Green (18), and Tony Bradley (16) were the other double-figure scorers.
New York Knicks
One of the big surprises of the rookie class is Immanuel Quickly who has risen up the all-rookie ladder particularly as the season has progressed.
His floater in the painter is literally unstoppable and while teams will likely make adjustments on the youngster he’s impressed through the early part of his NBA tenure.
Through 37 games he’s averaging 12.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. In his last nine games, he’s raised the scoring (15.9 points) and is shooting well from deep (38.7 percent). Unfortunately, Quickley may not play Sunday due to a sprained ankle.
The Knicks are winning on defense and struggling offensively having scored under 100 in each of their last two matches — losing to the 76ers and beating the Magic (94-93) on Thursday.
Mitchell Robinson (hand) and Elfrid Payton (hamstring) are listed as day-to-day. Austin Rivers and Derrick Rose remain out due to health and safety protocols.

Although the Knicks have the rest advantage Tom Thibodeau is navigating with a decimated lineup with several core producers out.

This should be a low-scoring affair especially if Simmons or Curry can’t go for Philly and Quickley plus the group of Knicks out injured can’t go for New York. That factor benefits the 76ers.
