Key Matchup: Carmelo Anthony vs. Andre Iguodala
With the small forward position being the strongest on the floor during this matchup, all eyes will be on All-Stars Carmel Anthony and Andre Iguodala as they go head-to-head. With Iggy playing stifling defense with mediocre offense and Carmelo being offensively gifted with little defensive ability, this will be a wild matchup. With it being at MSG, the edge has to go to the Knicks.
Prediction: Knicks 97, 76ers 89
