Published

on

The Philadelphia 76ers are gearing up for a crucial Game 4 on Sunday, aiming to level the Eastern Conference first-round series against the New York Knicks. The Knicks currently hold a 2-1 lead, making this a pivotal game in the series.

In Game 3, Joel Embiid scored an impressive 50 points, grabbed eight rebounds and made four assists, leading the 76ers to a 125-114 victory. Last season’s MVP has been open about his mental health struggles following knee surgery and a diagnosis of Bell’s Palsy, a type of facial paralysis that has affected his vision. 

Despite the Knicks’ early lead in the series, Joel Embiid remains confident in Philadelphia’s potential. He has boldly stated that the 76ers will still come out on top.

Winners and Whiners: Take Philly

Mark Ruelle writes: “With Robinson missing the entire second half, the Knicks’ advantage on the glass disappeared. Game three was the first game of the series the Sixers won the rebounding battle, 36-32. Brunson broke out for 39 points but the Knicks bench had its worst game in game three as the Sixers seemed to focus in on the likes of Brogdanovic and McBride. Embiid and Tyrese Maxey continue to look for support and may have found some in Oubre in game three with his 15 points. The Sixers have a great opportunity to knot the series at two games apiece on Sunday and will do so with the Knicks bench taking a major hit without Robinson.”

Clutch Points: Pick New York Knicks

Robert Hayek writes: “The Knicks had a good first half in Game 3. Yet, they fell apart in Game 4. While the 76ers could definitely take Game 4, the Knicks may do everything in their power to keep it close. Consider the fact that the Knicks won Game 1 by seven and Game 2 by three. That means this series has had some close battles, which likely will be a recurring theme. The Knicks will do everything to keep it close. Consequently, we see this going to the very end, which means it will likely be a game that sees a winner in the final seconds.”
