The Philadelphia 76ers will face the New York Knicks for the second time in as many days but this time the Sixers will be home.
Game Info: 7pm at the Wells Fargo Center on CSN.
Injuries: Andrew Bynum is still out, Jason Richardson had a sprained ankle vs the Knicks on Sunday; he’s out.
In place of Richardson, Dorell Wright will start. Kwame Brown is also starting at Center. The preview from yesterday’s game basically can cover this game. With Kwame Brown, the Sixers’ rebounding should improve. That was a big concern on Sunday. Perimeter defense needs to work too as the Knicks had too many open looks.
Also, the Sixers need an answer for Melo. Thad Young and Evan Turner can’t do it one on one. There needs to be more team oriented effort. The Sixers played lazy on Sunday though so if they come with the energy we know and love, they should be fine.
I think Sixers win tonight. They better.
