(NBA) Philadelphia vs. New York, 04/22/2024 7:30 PM, Score: 101 - 104
Point Spread: -5.50 | -109.00 New York (Home)
Result: Loss
This is a 2* play on NYK.

Embiid scored 29 points in Game 1, but he was carried off the court in the second quarter after re-injuring his knee. If there is any swelling since Game 1, Embiid could be seriously limited in Game 2. The chances of his doing further damage to this injury would appear to be quite high. Keep in mind he scored 23 points in the Play-in game versus Miami, and he averaged just over 23 points per game in each of the last two years in the post-season. Note that the Knicks ranked #1 in the Eastern Conference in opponent's scoring average. Maxey is also questionable with an illness, piling on the problems for the Sixers.
