The NBA is back from the All-Star Break as the Philadelphia 76ers (32-22, 3rd in Atlantic) host the New York Knicks (33-22, 2nd in Atlantic) on Thursday night at Wells Fargo Center.

You can argue both teams were looking forward to the eight-day break from the action with each team coming into this one struggling in their own ways.Since their nine-game winning streak, the Knicks have dropped five of their last six games and are now only a half-game up on Philadelphia for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Meanwhile, the Sixers are 3-8 since reigning MVP Joel Embiid underwent surgery to repair a meniscus injury earlier this month.The first meeting between these Atlantic Division foes wasn’t close as the Knicks went into the City of Brotherly Love and made 18 three-pointers en route to a 128-92 blowout victory over the Sixers on Jan. 5.Can New York get back on track, or will Philadelphia earn its way back into the win column?Here’s my betting preview on the spread, total and moneyline for this divisional matchup on Thursday night in Philly.
