New York have had the jump on Philly all season and currently hold a 3-1 advantage in this best of 7 series following a grinding 97-92 win in Philadelphia in Game 4. 

From now on every game is an elimination game for the 76ers but the prediction is that their journey will end here against a Knicks team that are trending up thanks to star guard Jalen Brunson. Brunson dropped a career play-off high of 47 in the previous matchup to go with 10 assists as New York broke the Philly hearts. 

This game will be all about who can last the longest, with all starters playing major minutes so far this series.

  • New York hold their opponents to the 2nd fewest Field Goal Attempts in the league with 85.4 per game (league avg 88.4)
  • The Knicks hold their opponents to only 108.1 pts per game, 2nd in Scoring Defence in the NBA
  • Philadelphia are bang on average in Scoring ranking 15th in the league with 114.1 points per game
  • In this series so far the 76ers average just over 105 points per game on 44% shooting

The Knicks took the regular season series 3-1 winning both games in Philadelphia. They have now won 7 of the last 10 covering in all but one of those victories. 7 of the last 10 games have also gone to the Under.

Philadelphia 76ers Form


Philadelphia are essentially in the hands of fate at this point. Joel Embiid looked good to finish the season coming back from injury but is listed as questionable for this game indicating there is something going on behind the curtains which would explain the varied output. 

The Big Man still managed almost 44 minutes in the Game 4 loss but shot 36% from the field hitting only 1 of his 6 attempts from distance. If the 76ers are to have any chance at recovering from the 3-1 deficit it rests solely on Embiid to pick the team up and put it on his shoulders. A task that has proven difficult in previous years.

Philadelphia 76ers Team News


Joel Embiid is questionable with a migraine whilst Kelly Oubre Jr. is listed as probable with illness. 

New York Knicks Form


The Knicks had to finish Game 4 shorthanded with Bojan Bogdanovic leaving the floor with an ankle injury early in the piece. Key bench player Mitchell Robinson was also out and when starting centre Isaiah Hartenstein got into early foul trouble the rest of the team had to pick up the slack. OG Anunoby, Josh Hart and Jalen Brunson all played 43 minutes or more with Anunoby topping the group with 46:49 mins. 

The Knicks shot 26% from 3 in the game, way down on their season average of 36.9%.

New York Knicks Team News


Bojan Bogdanovic will miss game 5 with an ankle injury which saw him leave early in Game 4. Mitchell Robinson is listed as questionable with a sprained ankle.
