Jalen Brunson (PG) vs. Joel Embiid (C)

Jalen Brunson has been phenomenal in the current season and averaged 3 games with 28.7 points and 6.7 assists per game. Scoring effectiveness and play making capacity of Rose turns him into the crucial part of the Knicks engine. Although he is not as much concerned with his defensive statistics he is highly instrumental during offensive match scenarios and especially in high pressure instances.

Joel Embiid, we can talk about the fact, why he is considered to be one of the most influential centers, even though he played only 39 games due to injury. With the average of 34.7 points and 11 rebounds per game, he indeed is likely to be an essential factor not only in the paint but overall on the court when the Bulls face the Knicks. His brilliance in the blocking zone and rebounding will create problems for the Knicks’ offensive skills.

The match could go one or another way depending on the effectiveness and power of the two main figures. We will keep an eye on Brunson’s agility and scoring against Embiid’s defense and post play: theirs is kind of an interesting bout. The combination will focus on Embiids’ ability to change shots and rebound while diminishing the effect of Brunson’s driving to the basket.

Knicks’ Strategic Offense

One of the Knicks’ strong suits so far is the league with their average of 112.8 points scored per game at a 46.5 % shooting efficiency. Three point shooting – at 37% –, of course, will be one of the key points in disrupting the Sixers’ defense. Notwithstanding effort and execution from a three-point close distance and the free-throw line (78%), they need to stay consistent, especially in a very desperate atmosphere where anything is possible.

76ers’ Defensive Mastery

Just as Philadelphia has managed to score and defend well, the above numbers clearly show, with a 114.6 average points per game and very encouraging defensive figures, that they are the league leader in blocks. Such careful execution of Embiid matched in the paint and on the perimeter defense will most likely be the main game plan in shutting down the Knicks shooters and undoubtedly deciding the tempo of the game.
