The 76ers have been on fire offensively since the return of James Harden and have won 7 games in a row and covered the spread in 6 of them. The Knicks have been also been playing great lately but but they have lost their last 2 games and have been absolutely dominated by the Sixers losing 17 of their last 20 head to head games. Embiid is hot right now and just scored 44 points in the last game so I gotta go with the Sixers on this one.
