Knicks @ 76ers (Game 3): Nov. 5th 7:00 PM EST
New York Knicks: 2-0
Philadelphia 76ers: 1-1
Head-to-Head: Knicks Lead 1-0
Tonight, back end of the home-and-home with Philly.
Can the Knicks continue their hot start? I don’t see why not.
What I’ll be Watching:
- Resolve - The Knicks got two huge wins and now face the back-end of of a back-to-back. The main thing I’m going to watching tonight is if the Knicks have it in them to gut out a win. It’s going to be tough tonight. Guys might be tired, so we can’t expect lights out shooting again. Defense is going to win this game tonight.
- Melo - the big story of the first two games have been the play of Carmelo Anthony. The difference between this Melo and last year’s Melo is that he is reading what the defense is giving so much better. He’ll take it if he has it, but he makes the defense pay if they are out of rotation by passing it along.
- Defense - we’ll need to rely on the defense tonight.
Betting Line: Philly by 3 (O/U 184.5)
