Donte DiVincenzo finished with just five points on two of seven shooting an the Knicks got nothing from their bench players.

Philadelphia 76ers

Joel Embiid led the team with 50 points, eight rebounds and four assists on 13 of 19 shooting, Tyrese Maxey added 25 points with seven assists while Kelly Oubre Jr chipped in with 15 points on six of eight shooting. As a team, the 76ers shot 54 percent from the field and 15 of 31 from the 3-point line as they did their best to stay within striking distance in the first half, before they exploded for 43 points in the third quarter thanks to Embiid who barely missed all night despite an apparent eye injury.

NY Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

The Knicks are still missing Julius Randle, and they have Mitchell Robinson listed as questionable, while the 76ers are keeping an eye on Joel Embiid who is questionable for this one. This is definitely one of those games where you want to check the lineups before tipoff, but assuming that Embiid plays, I am going with the 76ers, who looked like a different team now that they're back playing at home. Maybe my pick changes if Embiid sits out, but as it stands, I'm leaning towards the 76ers to get the job done in this spot.
