The New York Knicks and the Philadelphia 76ers swap venues tonight and will meet in Philly’s Wells Fargo Center after the Knicks defeated the Sixers 100-84 in Madison Square Garden yesterday. The opening tip off is set for 7:05 PM ET.
New York (2-0) won its second straight game to open the season on Sunday, thanks in large part to another stellar performance by Carmelo Anthony. He scored 27 points in this one, following an even more impressive showing on opening night, when he netted 30 and grabbed 10 rebounds versus the Miami Heat in that 104-84 victory. The Knicks have been “lights out” from 3 point range, hitting an amazing 30 in the first two contests. It has been 13 years since they started a season 2-0.
Philadelphia (1-1) committed 18 turnovers and their defense was nowhere near as effective as it had been in their season opening 84-75 win against Denver. Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 27 points on Sunday. Start your Basketball Wagering on Knicks vs. 76ers Game.
