NY Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers Injury Report

The Knicks will be without Julius Randle due to a shoulder injury, but now Mitchell Robinson is questionable with an ankle issue. Robert Covington will continue to be out for the 76ers, but De'Anthony Melton is probable and could play his first game since April 14. Joel Embiid is questionable on the injury report with his knee issue, but I obviously expect him to play considering he’s played well through it already.

NY Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers prediction

I seriously considered the Knicks and the free points because you can argue they're the better team. The Knicks have won 3 straight games against the 76ers and 7 of the last 10 games overall. Embiid is also dealing with a knee and eye issue. With all that said, the 76ers should've won game 2 on the road, but weird things happened in the final minute. Also, the 76ers had a chance to win game 1, but Josh Hart is shooting unreal from deep. At home, the 76ers should be more comfortable, as it's where 26 of their 48 wins have come. The 76ers have done a great job of making things tough for Brunson, and I doubt the Knicks role players keep bailing him out on the road. I'll side with the 76ers at home in game 3. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
