The New York Knicks took a short trip to face the Philadelphia 76ers, and we will have to see if they can keep the momentum going after a big win recently against LeBron James and company. Carmelo Anthony always seems to have these scoring binges in the late regular season, but we will have to see if he can make anything happen in the playoffs. Personally, love his offensive game, but his defense is such a glaring weakness that it is hard to ignore it when his game continually fails to produce in the playoffs.
Sorry to be a downer to any Knicks’ fans, but just had to get that off my chest about ‘Melo. This one tips at 7:35 PM EST, and here is the TV info for it.

The Knicks appears to finally feel like they have gotten over the dark cloud part of their season, but pardon me if I remain cautious to go all in yet.
“It wasn’t going to last all season like that,” point guard Raymond Felton said. “We were just going through a slump, now I feel like we’re out of it.”
The Knicks are favored (-4.5), and would expect them to cover the spread. Two more previews coming at you today, and then stop by Rant Sports Prep later on for coverage of the young ballers across America who will one day land on your flat screens.
