    10/27 Game 4: Philadelphia 76ers (2-1) @ New York Knicks (2-1): new Barometer reading

    Coming off of disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic New York Knicks host the Philadelphia 76ers with something to prove and that is consistency. The Knicks have a 12 punch in Julius Randle and Evan Fournier. Mitchell Robinson has been averaging four fouls a game but he has been able to demonstrate unparalleled athletic ability exhibited through his defense and rebounding. Trick has been trying to figure out how to re-incorporate 3rd option RJ Barrett and 4th option Kemba Walker. RJ Barrett's defense has been there but his offense continues to be a mystery in stretches. No one expected Kemba Walker to be the 20 point per game scorer that he once was but his inability to quicken the pace and move the ball has forced Coach Thibs to rely more on derrick Rose. Derrick Rose has really helped the second unit by pushing the ball up court. The faster pace has helped second year players like Obie Toppin.

    Will the Knicks finally put it all together against a top four playoff team like the Sixers? We'll find out tonight at the Garden. Let'sgo Knicks!

    Kemba moves the ball on offense it's his defense that's the problem

    My key focus will be to see if we are getting 2019 Randle or 2020 Randle. We need good ball movement on offense not this stupid hero ball crap with him bricking fade-aways and turning the ball over 8 times a game. If he let's the MVP stuff gets to head then Thibs needs to start benching him.

    From Thibs I need to see willingness to bench people when they suck. Like Poppovich does. The dude benched Tim mfking Duncan!!! And Thibs can't bench Randle? Seriously?

    Randle just admitted to being tired during last years playoffs.

    How well the Knicks play against the Simmon-less 76ers will tell us how real this team is.

    The 76ers got beat pretty handily by the Hawks in the playoffs with a full strength Ben Simmons.

    that was Ben at his worst lol, if we had him playing like that I think its safe to say we should win hands down.

    So the Hawks don't get any credit for playing good defense and taking Ben's confidence away the way they did to Randle and the rest of the Knicks??

    Kemba is underwhelming

    I really hope he gets his game back soon

    Yes he knows how to get those charges.
    But thatís not enough.
