What channel is Knicks vs. 76ers on today? Time, TV schedule, live stream for Game 1 of 2024 NBA Playoffs series | Sporting News United Kingdom


The second seeded Knicks will try to contain a healthy Joel Embiid and the surging 76ers in the first round of the NBA playoffs that begin Saturday.  

Philadelphia edged the Heat 105-104 on Wednesday night in the NBA’s play-in tournament, and earned the Eastern Conference’s No. 7 seed. 

Embiid, the reigning Most Valuable Player, missed two months because of a knee injury.

The Sixers and Knicks will meet for the first time postseason series since New York swept Charles Barkley, Maurice Cheeks and the Sixers in 1989.

The Knicks won the season series 3-1 without Embiid in the lineup. 

All-Star guard Jalen Brunson is averaging 35.1 points and 7.4 assists over the Knicks’ last 17 games. Josh Hart averaged 12.3 points, 14.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists while playing 39 minutes against Philadelphia this season.

The 76ers made a late push for a top-six seed in the East when Embiid returned from a knee injury. Embiid finished the season averaging 34.7 points and 11 rebounds in just 39 games.

The Sixers finished 31-8 with Embiid in the lineup and 16-27 without him this season.

New York will try to contain Embiid with centers Mitchell Robinson and Isaiah Hartenstein.
