Game Overview

The New York Knicks (50-32) take on the Philadelphia 76ers (47-35) in the first round of the playoffs on April 20, 2024, at 3:00 p.m. EST. With the Knicks holding home-court advantage, this matchup is critical for both teams. Let's examine our prediction for Game 1.

 

Team Statistics

Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers have been formidable on the road this season, but facing the Knicks at Madison Square Garden presents a tough challenge.

New York Knicks

The Knicks have been dominant at home with a 27-14 record, showcasing their ability to perform under pressure in front of their fans.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for the 76ers, which could impact their performance in Game 1. However, both teams have relatively healthy rosters heading into the game.

 

Recent Performances

Philadelphia 76ers

The 76ers have been on a hot streak lately, winning eight consecutive games. However, playing on the road against a tough Knicks team will be a significant test for them.

New York Knicks

The Knicks have also been in good form, winning their last five games. With momentum on their side and the home-court advantage, they are well-positioned for success in Game 1.

 

Prediction

The New York Knicks are favored to cover the spread in Game 1, supported by their strong performance at home throughout the season. With a 27-14 record at Madison Square Garden, they have consistently outperformed their opponents on their home court.

J. Brunson will lead the Knicks' offense, using his scoring ability to create opportunities for his teammates. Additionally, the Knicks' solid defense, anchored by I. Hartenstein, will make it difficult for the 76ers to score.

Considering the Knicks' home-court advantage and their recent performances, our prediction leans towards the New York Knicks covering the -3.5 points spread in Game 1.

Pick: New York Knicks -3.5
