INJURY TO WATCH
Knicks shooting guard Courtney Lee (foot), center Kyle O'Quinn (hip), shooting guard Damyean Dotson (foot) and point guard Emmanuel Mudiay (illness) are all questionable to play tonight. Center Joakim Noah (personal), power forward Kristaps Porzingis (knee) and shooting guard Ron Baker (shoulder) are out for the seaosn. For the Sixers, shooting guard Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot (knee) is out indefinitely.
Philadelphia won the two road meetings this season by counts of 105-98 and 118-110, while the matchup at home ended with the 76ers dominating to the tune of 108-92 on Feb. 12. New York has shown some fight lately, but Philly has also won its last five games by at least 12 points. I'm going to say the hosts dominate once again tonight as they continue to show they are playoff-ready.
