Last Updated: 02/04/2023 at 10:34 PM ET

The World’s Most Famous Arena will play host to a Sunday evening NBA clash between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks. The 76ers (34-17) have won nine of their last ten games and trail Boston by 1.5 games for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. On Friday, Philadelphia shot a scorching 58 percent from the field en route to a 137-125 road triumph against San Antonio.

All-Star C Joel Embiid tallied a game-high 33 points on 10-for-18 shooting and pulled down ten boards. Tyrese Maxey scored 25 points (8-15 FG) in 27 minutes off the bench. James Harden chipped in 16 points and eight assists for the 76ers, who knocked down 13-for-27 from the three-point line.

The New York Knicks have lost seven of their last ten games and are hoping to make a splash at next week's trade deadline. Last night, New York outscored visiting LA by 15 points in the fourth quarter to force overtime before falling by a 134-128 final score. The Knicks (28-26) assisted on 30 of 45 made field goals and shot 48 percent overall.

New York G Jalen Brunson poured in a game-high 41 points on a 14-for-19 shooting performance and dished out seven assists. All-Star F Julius Randle added 28 points (10-18 FG) to go along with 11 rebounds and seven assists for the Knicks. 

Philadelphia C Joel Embiid has been dealing with left foot soreness and is listed as questionable for this contest. These two teams rank in the bottom third of the league in tempo, so the under is worth a look. The stronger play is on the 76ers to win on the road. Final Score Prediction, Philadelphia 76ers win 118-106.
