Game Thread: Knicks vs. 76ers- 11/4/12

New, comments

The Knicks and Sixers play the first of a back-to-back in New York.

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Good morning, friends! The Knicks and 76ers tip off at noon today. That's far too early, but thankfully still in the future because the time changed. Some pre-game things:

1. Tyson Chandler's gonna play, flu-like symptoms be damned.

2. Marcus Camby will sit out this one and the next one tomorrow night. Mike Woodson wants him to scrimmage before he gets into a game, which seems reasonable.

3. Depending on how big the Sixers go, Rasheed Wallace might see some time. Thaddeus Young starts at the four, so New York will go with the same lineup that beat Miami-- Carmelo Anthony at power forward, Jason Kidd at the two against Jason Richardson-- but Philly plays actual centers in Lavoy Allen and Spencer Hawes. I assume Kurt Thomas will still be the first big man off the bench, but you never know...

4. Carmelo Anthony will be called "Carmelo Anthony". If he has a bad game, they better go back to "Melo Anthony".

Tip-off's just minutes away! If you're watching, come on in and comment along, and don't forget to check out the wonderful Liberty Ballers for Sixers coverage. Please remember not to post links to illegal streams or large photos in the thread. <3
