We’re finally back home again!! The MECCA of basketball awaits.
On Saturday, December 26th the Philadelphia 76ers are traveling to New York to play the New York Knicks for both of their second games of the season. As per usual, the Knicks are coming in with a loss the whereas the 76ers are coming off a win against Mr. Brick himself Russell Westbrook, and the Washington Sorcerers. During the Knicks’ first game of the season, RJ Barrett shined on all 3 fazes of the offense and dropped a cool and efficient 26 points. Unlike the Knicks, the 76ers received a much more collaborative effort from most of the starting lineup to dispatch the Sorcerers. Now unlike last game, J Cole’s bestie who can dunk will not be making an appearance on the injury report however we may not get to experience QuickleyMania. Immanuel Quickley was marked as “Doubtful” on Friday’s Injury Report with a sore left hip. Another Knick who made an appearance on Friday’s Injury report was the stretch 4 Obi 1. Obi Toppin was marked as “Doubtful” with a sore left calf. The final Knick of relevance that made an appearance on Friday’s injury report was the mixtape warrior himself Austin Rivers. Austin Rivers was marked “Out” with an injury he’s been dealing with since training camp a sore groin (I wonder what he’s been up to).
The 76ers have no injuries.
