The Knicks were 3-1 SU&ATS versus Philadelphia this season and held them to 96 points or fewer on each occasion. The 76ers scored a mere 86.5 points per game and shot a miserable 40.3% during those 4 meetings. Philadelphia narrowly escaped with a 105-104 home win over Miami in the Play-In Tournament to capture the #7 seed. New York finished the regular season on a 5-game win streak in which they scored 119.8 points per contest, shot 50.0% from the field, and a terrific 43.6% from 3-point territory. The 76ers are on an 8-game win streak but 5 of those win came versus teams with a losing record. The 76ers have shot the ball poorly in each of their previous 2 contest going 77-182 (42.3%) from the field. Philadelphia is a dismal 1-5 SU&ATS as an away underdog this season and on a 2-game win streak. Conversely, the Knicks are 6-0 SU&ATS this season as a favorite of between 2.5 to 4.5-points with an average margin of victory coming by 12.8 points per game. Give me the Knicks minus points.
