This is our Super Bowl, friends. One of several. The Knicks remain atop the lottery odds standings, but they suffered a setback Monday night against the Pelicans, and a couple other teams sit too close for comfort. One of those teams, the Sixers, already took a loss off the Knicks earlier this year, and they'll play host tonight.
It's going to be tough. The Knicks have road-court advantage, but they'll also have their whole winning starting lineup intact, including surprise tank-ruiner Langston Galloway and the maddeningly available Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire. The Sixers have won 4 of their last 10 and are clear favorites in this one, but I still fear a win streak.
Tip-off tonight is at 7, so you'll wanna have everything ready for your party guests by like 6 or 6:30. This is your game thread. This is the wonderful Liberty Ballers. Please don't post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. You can do this, Knicks.
