The New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers collide at the Wells Fargo Center on Thursday night. Here’s a Knicks vs 76ers Prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks haven't been at their best lately as they have lost five of their last six games and in their last game before the All-Star break, they lost by 118-100 in a road game against the Magic. Jalen Brunson led the team with 33 points and six assists, Precious Achiuwa added 23 points with 14 rebounds and five assists while Alec Burks chipped in with 13 points. As a team, the Knicks shot just 41 percent from the field and 11 of 29 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 36 points in the first quarter to jump out to an early 12-point lead, but they went cold and could never reclaim the lead after getting dominated by 38-19 in the second quarter. Miles McBridge had a rough game as he scored just eight points on two of 11 shooting while Josh Hart shot just two of eight from the field and zero of four from the 3-point line for his eight points.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been in a major slump as they've lost nine of their last 12 games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting beaten by the Heat in a 109-104 loss last Wednesday. Tyrese Maxey led the team with 30 points and seven assists on 12 of 23 shooting, Buddy Hield added 22 points with 10 assists while Paul Reed chipped in with 18 points and 12 rebounds. As a team, the 76ers shot 47 percent from the field and 10 of 35 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Heat in a close contest, but they couldn't find their offense when it mattered most, scoring just 42 points in the second half to suffer another close defeat at home. The 76ers will meet the Cavs, Bucks, and Celtics after this one.

Knicks vs 76ers Prediction

The Knicks are still shorthanded with Mitchell Robinson, OG Anunoby and Isaiah Hartenstein still out, while the 76ers are still missing Joel Embiid and Robert Covington. The Knicks really needed some days off as they really struggled to stay competitive without Randle in the lineup and you could definitely say the same about the 76ers who have struggled without Embiid. You couldn't back either team with much confidence these days, but the Knicks are expecting to have Donte DiVincenzo and Bojan Bogdanovic available, so I'm leaning towards the Knicks to escape with the narrow road win here.
