Let’s turn live now to my reaction: There is a lot to hate about to hate about this arrangement. The Knicks got smacked around by the 76ers both times they played following the James Harden trade. The two Philly Foul Merchants, Joel Embiid and James Harden, shot a combined 376,540 free throws in those games.
The Brooklyn Nets are nowhere to be found.
On Sunday, Philadelphia 76ers superstar James Harden beat everyone to the news that the 76ers would be playing the New York Knicks on Christmas Day at Madison Square Garden. NBA reporter Marc Stein later confirmed the news. Harden began his season playing for the Brooklyn Nets, but was sent to the 76ers in a blockbuster deal at the trading deadline.
