Melo says “dont do that”, Embiid responds by going full Maximus pic.twitter.com/kO3JPfUc68— Wobsell Perezbrook (@World_Wide_Wob) December 16, 2017
Ben Simmons had 12 points, 11 assists and 9 rebounds for the Sixers, while J.J. Reddick scored 19 points and Dario Saric added 16. On Saturday night, Anthony will make his first appearance at the Garden since being traded in September for Enes Kanter, Doug McDermott and a draft pick. “I’m excited to go back and play in the Garden,” Anthony told Oklahoma City reporters Wednesday, via Newsday. “Play in front of those fans. Play in front of my family, my friends. But at the end of the day, it’s business to me. But I’d be lying if I said I’m not ecstatic to be going back and playing there. “I got a different feeling with New York. A different relationship, different bond with the city, with the fans, with the people. It’s a little bit special for me.” Knicks star Kristaps Porzingis is questionable for the game after suffering a knee injury in Thursday’s win at Brooklyn. The Knicks are also without Tim Hardaway Jr., (stress fracture) the team’s second-leading scorer. Porzingis said he believes Knicks fans should cheer Anthony upon his return. “I think he was as professional as he can be in his time here in New York, so I don’t see why they would not receive him with love,” Porzingis said Thursday via ESPN.
