💎 NY KNICKS ML -148 ( 1u )

  • I can't wait to watch this game tonight and see what damage the Knicks can do to start things off! I do believe that this series ultimately comes down to the health of Embiid. Yes, I know that Philly big man has been cleared and played against the Heat, but he's looked slow and straight up in pain at times. Embiid wasn't in the post much and wasn't throwing his body around like we normally see from him and it's not going to be the same if he's only hanging out on the outside and not dominant in the paint. A healthy Embiid and the 76ers probably win this series, but I just don't think he's 100%. The Knicks are a physical team that gets after it defensively and has one of the best clutch players in the NBA with Brunson. MSG is also going to be going absolutely Boonker tonight, because we all know the Knicks have one of the best home-court advantages in the league! With Embiid having big question marks, we will back the Knicks tonight! Knicks have enough bodies to throw at the others on Philly. This line is also pretty telling to me that the Knicks come out strong here! Give me the Knicks to draw first blood and make a statement!
