As snow fell last night, it crippled most of the I-95 corridor leading to multiple delays and leaving most cities an icy metropolis. That could also delay another loss in the Sixers track record. Tonight the team heads up to Madison Square Garden to take on the New York Knicks. Both teams have had their struggles as of late. Monday, in a special edition of NBA basketball in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Sixers took on the Washington Wizards, and although rookie standout Michael Carter-Williams scored 31 points, the team did not get a win. The Knicks suffered a similar fate after getting dismantled by the Brooklyn Nets by a score of 103-80.
With that being said, the Sixers are not as talented on paper as New York and have already taken a loss to the Knicks at home. They have been dismal at shooting the three-point shot, and Evan Turner has to step up and play at a high consistent level in order for the Sixers to get a win. The Knicks seem to be hot one day and colder than the polar vortex the next. The Sixers can honestly sneak in to this game and grab a win. If they try not to settle for the outside shot and do what they can to get to the foul line, I see the Sixers catching the Knicks off guard and winning this game.
