Sixers-Knicks Game Thread: The Unlikeliest Of Home Games

The Sixers have a bunch of Syracuse people related to them, while the Knicks have Carmelo Anthony. So we're doing it in the Carrier Dome.

For those excited about seeing this game thread and thinking "wait, is this game really on tv tonight?" well, for many of you I've got some bad news. The game will be televised in New York on MSG 2, which is a real channel from what I've read. It might even be available for some of you with satellite dishes. Check your guide.

Also, it's a home game for the Sixers, who before the current incarnation were the Syracuse Nationals. The Knicks figure to get more cheers, because Carmelo Anthony. Jerami Grant should get an extended shot tonight on his former home court, as well Nope he's injured. MCW is still out for the homecoming.

Unfortunately, the game will not be televised in Philadelphia on cable. Instead, you can listen on the radio. And JaKarr Sampson is starting, so you know it'll be weird.
