The NBA is back in action today as the New York Knicks will clash with the Philadelphia 76ers
The Knicks suffered an away defeat in the game against the Hornets. And on the other side, the 76ers suffered a 108-94 defeat in the game against the Cavaliers.
New York Knicks Form
The Knicks are one of the worst teams in the league. Moreover, they even suffered a surprising defeat in the game against the Hornets in their last game. And now they are in the basement of the Atlantic Division, 24.5 games behind the Raptors. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team is 13th, eight games behind Orlando for the final playoff spot. As for their away record, New York is 9-20 on the road entering Wednesday’s contest. In those games, they average 105.1 points per game while allowing 113.4 points a night.
On the offensive side of the game, the Knicks score an average of 104.6 points per game, good for the 28th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.3 boards per game combined with 21.6 dimes per night.
Also, their defensive record stands at 111.6 conceded points per game which is the 19th defensive record in the NBA.
Philadelphia 76ers Form
The 76ers also suffered a defeat in their last game which was against Cleveland. However, this Philadelphia team is not bad this season as they are 3rd in the Atlantic Division, six games behind the Raptors. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, the team stands fifth, 14 games behind the top-seeded Bucks. Philadelphia has a commanding form at home with a record of 27-2 at home this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the 76ers score an average of 108.9 points per game. And that is enough for the 22nd spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.7 rebounds combined with 25.8 assists per night. As for the defensive record, they are 3rd in the league with an average of 106.5 points conceded per game.
The Knicks are not playing well. Also, the expectation was they will win against the Hornets at home. However, that did not happen as they were thrashed in that game as well. And now, they are facing the 3rd strongest defence in the league away. Therefore, I expect a win for the 76ers in this one.
