The Knicks head to Philadelphia to take on the seriously shorthanded 76ers. Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Matisse Thybulle and Isaiah Joe are all in COVID protocols, Danny Green is out due to a hamstring injury and Ben Simmons is out because, well, you know, he’s a headcase.
The shorthanded Sixers have actually won six in a row, but with Embiid also out, it’s going to be kind of insane for them to pull this one out against the Knicks, even with Mitch Robinson missing tonight’s game, as well.
Crazier things have happened, I guess, but come on, if the Knicks don’t pull this one out then, well, that’d be very, very bad.
IS 56 WINS STILL IN PLAY? It’s looking less likely, but a win tonight would be very helpful to set things back on target!
Let’s go, Knicks!
