|If you're going to pick one area of the game to be horrible at against the Knicks, three-point defense is probably the only one that could kill you. The Sixers played with fire tonight and nearly lost a home game they absolutely couldn't afford to lose.|
|Elton Brand's suit will be hanging in his locker at 7p.m. when the Knicks and Sixers tip it off at the Wach. After the jump we'll talk about Brand's return and take a quick look at the stats.|
|Tonight's game against the New York Knicks is about one thing, and one thing only. Getting back to .500. Truthfully, this team should've never fallen below, certainly not 7 games below (their low-water mark, set with the Spurs loss). Tonight, they can even the ledger after 40 games they'll be back on level ground. Win this one and then you can worry about battling for playoff position, possibly even home-court advantage.|

|I'm not sure that adding Chris Duhon and subtracting Renaldo Balkman constitutes a new look, but there you have it. Mike D'Antoni will bring his New York Knickerbockers to the Wach tonight at 7 for a preseason extravaganza. I'll be...|
|Don't let the 124-84 final score fool you, this game was not that close. If you ever needed a visual representation of two teams heading in opposite directions, watch the tape of this game.I stand by the statement I made...|
|I don't have a lot to say about this game, mostly because I feel sick to my stomach after watching a full 48 minutes of hoops from the Garden and not hearing one "Fire Isiah" chant. Tonight's 89-81 loss was...|
