Wow, now this is what I call a battle between two real evenly matched teams.

The New York Knicks come into town to take on the Philadelphia 76ers inside the Wells Fargo Center at 7:30 PM ET tonight.

New York comes in with a record of 13-22, 7-10 on the road. Everything is going downhill for the Knicks. Everything.

The Sixers come in with a record of 12-24, 7-10 at home, currently on a 3-game losing streak.

For the Knicks, Tyson Chandler is out (illness), Pablo Prigioni is out (toe), and Metta Wold Peace is out (knee). Unfortunately for the Knicks, they have been dealing with a ton of injuries all season so far.

For the Sixers, Lavoy Allen is out (calf) and Arnett Moultrie is out (ankle).

With the Knicks being banged up, struggling to put points on the board, as well as with grabbing rebounds, I got the Sixers winning this one.

Here are the probable starters for tonight’s game. (Thank you to Keith Pompey)
