New York Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers (By: Miyagi)
I was for a line on Embiid but apparently, they won't offer one, at least not until very late, so I'm going to share my second selection on this game which I will bet on once all the bookies offer the lines in order to choose the best one.
Anyway, the Sixers come from a surprising loss to a tanking team and they cannot afford to lose to another one here thus they are not expected to underestimate the Knicks, especially on the road.
Simmons has played lockdown defense every single time he had to and he enjoys his games against hyped rookies (among others, he has shut down Doncic every single time this season even in pre-season games). Today he will be against Knox and the rookie is going to have a tough time. Knox had 9 points in his first game against the Sixers and 21 in the second one but he was against Korkmaz for a long time in that game. Simmons won't give him lanes to attack the basket and it would be foolish for Knox to try to post Simmons as it can only get ugly, so, he will have to look to do some damage from long range shots which has been hit or miss for him so far and i can't see him going above 14 points today.
