The New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers will meet for the first time this season. Here’s everything you need to know for this game.

New York Knicks stumbled on Sunday, dropping a winnable game to the Orlando Magic. It was the kind of performance that can serve as an early reminder that nothing comes easy. Humble pie can be a good thing for the Knicks (and their fans).

The 76ers are embroiled in a standoff with Ben Simmons. The All-Star won’t be on the floor in Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night and that’s good news for New York. Simmons is 14-0 against the Knicks in his career.

Let’s take a closer look at the broadcast information, odds, injury report, and projected starting lineups.
