76ers vs Knicks prediction

The 76ers had their chances in game 1, but the Knicks made some tough shots down the stretch. The 76ers have to be encouraged by their defensive efforts and the fact they're making others not named Brunson beat them. The 76ers are also 48-34-1 ATS on the season, so I wouldn't knock you if looking at the points. With all that said, Embiid still isn't 100 percent with that knee issue, and he had a scare in game 1 that doesn't help matters. The Knicks have won 5 of the last 7 games against the 76ers, and they've covered all of those wins. Madison Square Garden has a nasty home crowd, and it is intimidating going against the Knicks in that venue. I'd need more points, especially factoring in Embiid's issues. Give me the Knicks and the reasonable line.
