Current Standings – New York – 3rd in the eastern Conference (6.5 games behind Miami), 1st in the Atlantic Division (1 game ahead of Brooklyn) Philadelphia – 9th in the Eastern Conference (17 games behind Miami), 4th in the Atlantic Division (10.5 games behind New York).
Previous Meeting – New York fell to Philadelphia 97-80, on January 26th, 2013.
What To Watch For – New York is currently riding their first four game losing streak this season, and they have been under fire since before the All-Star break. Look for the Knicks to come out of the gate today with plenty of energy on both sides of the ball. The Knicks are desperate for a win right now and there’s no better place to end the losing streak then Madison Square Garden. The Sixers won big last time the team met, with Thaddeus Young being a key piece to the puzzle. Young is going to be a game-time decision today, and that can have a massive impact on the outcome of the contest.
