    Default New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers Game Thread 2/27/09


    (24-33) vs. (28-28)




    Al "Protege" Harrington and the Knicks

    vs.


    Andre Iguodala and the 76ers


    Key Matchup



    Andre Miller
    16.1 points, 6.4 assists, 4.4 rebounds (ranks 9th in the NBA in Triple Doubles)

    vs.



    Chris Duhon
    12.1 points, 7.9 assists, 2.89 turnovers (ranks 8th in the NBA in assists per game)




    Miller is one of the best point guards in the NBA. He can score, pass, and defend. He makes his teammates better and is one of the main reasons why the 76ers are a playoff team.



    Duhon is one of the most improved players in the NBA. His scoring and assists has doubled from the 2007-2008 season to the 2008-2009 season. His defense is also solid.

    Starting Lineups

    Knicks
    PG Duhon
    SG Chandler
    SF Harrington
    PF Lee
    C Jeffries

    76ers
    PG Miller

    Q Rich is better because he can get hot from downtown.

    You should have put a "None of the above" option on your poll.

    This game really is a must-win for our playoff hopes. Unfortunately, we haven't matched up well with the Sixers all season. The Sixers are athletic, quick, and get a lot of points off fastbreaks. We need to limit our turnovers, and shoot well from the field.

    Nice game thread btw, abcd.

    sick thread ABCD, nice choice of song too always been one of my favs....." im going,going back,back, to cali, cali...."

    anyways Iggy is who im really worried about he's a great layer on offense and has tight defense, hpefully Chandler could contain/minimize him.

    prediction-

    Knicks- 117

    76ers- 107

    knicks finally beat the sixers.....and Nate has another great game.

    Nice thread ABCD.

    My prediction

    NYK: 122
    PHI: 118

    A close high scoring one, possibly in OT. Nate continue his hot streak.
    I hope hughes snaps out of it and shoots well for once...

    We've beaten Boston
    We've beaten NJ
    We've beaten the Craptors
    We have yet to beat Philly. They've had our number all season. Let's try not to get a 4 game sweep, please? I got money riding on this game.

    The above is a crazy poll....anyone u pick may play worse than the other two vs Green, Iggy, and Young. Thats a catch 22 Poll vs Philly

    How to improve Jefferies performance is by putting him in a steady lineup with Duhon, Hughes, and Jefferies....the 3 players defend each other position well on a switch....they are a defensive-trio....our offensive trio are Nate, Chandler, and Gallo....the put-back hustle we get from Harrington, Wilcox, and Lee is efficient for the WIN.

    I'm sorry that Q.Rich is not in this 9-Man rotation but his inconsistency and positioning with certain teammates are not wanted.

    I never thought I would say this, but Q-rich is by far the best player in your poll. And nice game thread...I like your style (no homo)

    I think the 76ers will win, it seems like they almost always beat us. We have to win games like this if were gonna make the playoffs.

    the key for us to the playoffs is to avoid losing streaks as much as possible, were 2 1/2 games out of 8th, so we gotta win games we could win.....


    ....lets beat the 76ers like the Nets beat them on Monday lmao.

    I saw that game. That shot by Devin Harris was crazy.

    I think the Knicks will win this one. Elton Brand is not playing, so it should be easier for the Knicks to get to the basket, although Dalembert is a good shotblocker.

    We're really playing like crap to start. Turnovers, not rebounding, pretty bad defense, crap offense. Duhon is especially not playing well. He's either injured, or just really fatigued from all the minutes he's been playing.

    Wish we had a guy like Dalembert. Blocks shots and rebounds, exactly what we need.

    Yea duhon isn't playing like before. He will not be that floor general that we need. Time to start mr. Robinson
