New York Knicks Betting

For the New York Knicks, it is all about trying to finish respectably. They currently have 17 wins to show and have a chance to catch up to the Detroit Pistons. Though their run may not be for the playoffs, stringing up wins and ending their NBA season on a high note would be best. Julius Randle and RJ Barrett likely have that in mind as New York prepares for another period of rebuilding.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting

The Sixers now that a win is essential if they want to move up the playoff positioning ladder. Though they face a struggling squad, Brett Brown needs to take the Knicks seriously. Ben Simmons may be out but others have responded to the call. Joel Embiid has stepped up although there are concerns on his availability Thursday. The Cameroonian suffered a shoulder injury against the Cavaliers and will undergo an MRI. If Embiid cannot play, the complexion of this game will change dramatically.
