This game has looked like a loss to me ever since I first laid eyes on the schedule. Now that it's here, the Sixers are riding a six-game win streak and the Knicks look, well, unlike a playoff team, I'm starting to see this one swing the other way.
We're pretty familiar with the Knicks, considering the amount of national attention they get. They have two borderline stars and a big-money center. All three of them are playing way too many minutes. Beneath them on their depth chart, they have very, very little. I suspect Doug Collins and his assistants spent the train ride up to NYC last night finding new and interesting ways to attack this flawed team and their flawed coach.
I'm going to make one prediction. Tonight, we'll see the Sixers first 30-point scorer of the season in a double-digit win.
The tip is at 7:30pm. This is your game thread. Rich and I will be at the game, so it's unsupervised play for the thread. Keep it civil, have fun and I'll check in after the game. Win this one, and 10-in-a-row becomes likely.
The line is Sixers +4.5. What's your bet?
