Friday night Knicks! New York (19-15) is in the City of Brotherly Love for a swing at the the Philadelphia 76ers (23-10). Led by reigning MVP Joel Embiid, Philly is a juggernaut that rates fourth in the league for offense and second for defense. The Knicks are amidst a two-game win streak—and not coincidentally, new guy OG Anunoby has yet to lose a game as a ‘Bocker. Anunoby has shored up the team’s defense, aerated the offense, and shown to be an excellent third wheel for a Jalen Brunson / Julius Randle SuperTrike. Tonight will be a true test of how good NY’s starting lineup can be versus one of the league’s best.

Tip off is 7:30 p.m. EST on ESPN and MSG. This is your game thread. This is Liberty Ballers. Please don’t post large photos, GIFs, or links to illegal streams in the thread. Harmonize, don’t hostilize. And go Knicks!
