NBA Philadelphia 76ers Vs New York Knicks – Game Day Preview

(51 games in total. 42 of those games have been played at Madison Square Garden) At Noon EST, the Philadelphia 76ers will be coming into MSG to face off with the New York Knicks for their first meeting of the season. Although we will not be seeing Julius Erving, Allen Iverson, Patrick Ewing or Walt Frazier – these two teams have up and coming talent such as Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and of course Kristaps Porzingis. After a full morning of unwrapping presents I have my fingers crossed that these two teams will put on a great show.

It was the most points the Knicks have scored as a team in a single Christmas Day game. Richie Guerin scored 40 points to pace the Knicks, while Wilt Chamberlain scored a game-high 59 for Philadelphia. I would sign up for another marathon but more importantly, a Knicks “W”.
