    Philadelphia 76ers Game thread: New York Knicks vs Philadelphia 76ers 7:30 1/18/2020 [Game #43]





    (27-16) -- (11-31)

    Venue TV TIME
    Madison Square Garden, New York, NY MSG 7:30 PM EST



    Probable starters:





    Injury Report

    Philadelphia 76ers New York Knicks
    Norvel Pelle - G-League assignment (OUT) RJ Barrett - Sprained right ankle (OUT)
    Joel Embiid - Hand injury (OUT) Wayne Ellington - Illness (Day to day)
    - Dennis Smith Jr - Left oblique strain (OUT)
    - Reggie Bullock - Contused left thigh (OUT)


    Game Preview

    The Philadelphia 76ers continue to get healthy at home with 20 wins in 22 games, but their road record still leaves plenty to be desired.

    After completing a sweep of a brief two-game homestand, the 76ers aim to snap a six-game road losing streak on Saturday when they visit the New York Knicks.

    Reserve Furkan Korkmaz drained six 3-pointers and finished with a career-high 24 points as Philadelphia posted a 100-89 victory over Chicago on Friday.

    "Everybody saw that I was really feeling it, and then they just tried to find me," Korkmaz said. "I got some good open looks."

    Sixers coach Brett Brown likened Korkmaz's performance to that of former Philly sharpshooter JJ Redick.

    "For us to see him come in, do JJ-like stuff, and have that type of a (shooter) that was different," Brown said. "That was different from what we have as it related to the current skill set."

    Ben Simmons reached the 20-point plateau for the third straight game, landing on that total Friday after making 10 of 17 shots from the floor. He also added 11 rebounds, but Simmons wasn't interested in talking about himself.

    "He was in rhythm," Simmons said of Korkmaz, "just keep trying to find him whenever he's open."

    The 76ers hope the sharpshooting of Korkmaz and consistent performances of Simmons travel with them on the road, where they sport a dismal 7-14 mark.

    Philadelphia, however, has defeated New York in both encounters this season, albeit with Joel Embiid leading the team in scoring in both contests. The All-Star center had 23 points in a 109-104 victory in Philadelphia on Nov. 20 and 27 points in a 101-95 win nine days later in New York.

    Embiid, however, remains sidelined with an injured left finger, causing the 76ers to rely heavily on veteran Al Horford.

    "If you look at it, he may go up a little bit, but it's never a reckless amount," Brown said of the 33-year-old Horford. "In regard to cutting our nose off to spite our face, that won't happen. We're very mindful of it."

    New York has its own injuries to address, with rookie shooting guard RJ Barrett expected to be sidelined at least a week with a right ankle sprain. Barrett, the third overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, sustained the injury during the Knicks' 121-98 setback to Phoenix on Thursday, marking the team's seventh loss in eight games.

    "It hurts. I never really been hurt before," Barrett said. "I don't remember the last time I missed a game. But we play so many games, it was bound to happen."

    Julius Randle scored 26 points versus the Suns, marking his third straight contest with at least 25. Randle, who is tied with Marcus Morris Sr. for the team lead in scoring with 19.0 points per game and is tops in rebounding at 9.1, had 17 and 22 points, respectively, in the first two meetings with the 76ers.

    Morris scored 17 points on Thursday in his return following a five-game absence due to a sore neck. He has averaged 21.0 points in the two meetings with Philadelphia this season.

    “ Miller is now 7-13, with James Dolan’s motley group having lost six of their past seven. Miller has just one victory over a club that currently sits with a .500 or better record (Miami).

    According to sources, Knicks brass was enthused by “the structure’’ Miller brought to the defense, but that feel-good vibe may be eroding.”

    If anybody has seen or know where Perry and Mills have been hiding... it would be nice for them to address the media....

    They didn’t do their work and go scout Ball in Australia... they aren’t trying to be responsible and make trade to improve the future... instead... as usual... Mills chasing the next dream, this current delusion is KAT or Beal. Yeah, good luck with that Mills.

    Thanks for the Game-Thread Rady .... Poor coach Miller's adding and subtraction to the rotation and lineups has the Knicks on a 1-7 run for a draft lottery ball, instead of Developing a co-existing rotation on both sides of the court to show an improve effort on defense, and on offense entering midseason.

    What we gonna do bout Ben Simmons and player/coach Horford's leadership today ???

    Simmon is the main reason for me saying trading back during the 2018 draft. Drafting Knox and Porter Jr. to be on the floor at the same time to guard Simmon. 6'10:

    Well, Morris knew how to stop Simmons from scoring inside, by sending Simmons to the FT line to miss both shots lol

    Trier & Knox need to start working-out together to combine their offensive scoring

    Why did he take out Knox. He was just getting into a groove. Before Simmon was fouled Knox had the d on him going to basket.

    I would have left Frank in the game to defend Simmons having 8 min remaining in the 2nd quarter

    I have seen several mis-communication on defense and offense. Frank & Bobby on offensive and Bobby & Morris on defense, letting simmon dunk the ball.

    That is the reason why I wouldn't be starting Bullock. There got to be someone else who is more in tone to 1st unit.

    Randle with 2 turnovers in the final minute. Awful. A winnable game. This is exactly why I give up either DSJ or Frank or Knox if somebody will take Randle.

    Final Minute: Randle travel.... then Morris got shot to give us the lead. Horford hit a 3 to give PHI 89-87 lead with 27 seconds. Then Randle lost ball out of bounds.... they miss a FT...

    90-87 PHI... 4 seconds left. Morris just misses 3 at the buzzer.
