After defending home court in Games 1 and 2, the New York Knicks are in Philadelphia with a 2-0 lead over the Sixers.

Philadelphia is 0-14 when down 0-2 in a series. Hopefully, that streak will extend to 0-15, but first, New York needs to take care of business on the road. Jalen Brunson struggled offensively in the first two games, so it'd be nice to see him get into a rhythm in Game 3. It helps that Wells Fargo Center is a court he's familiar with from his Villanova days.

Joel Embiid believes his team will come back to win the series. The Sixers are expected to get a considerable boost in Game 3 from a guard who missed 44 regular-season games with a recurring lumbar spine injury. Knicks fans shouldn't overlook the impact he could make.

De'Anthony Melton's status for tonight's game vs. Knicks

De'Anthony Melton (back) is listed as questionable. He played in only 38 regular-season games for the Sixers (33 starts), averaging 11.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, and 1.6 steals per contest. He shot 38.6% from the field and 36% from three.

Joel Embiid's status for tonight's game vs. Knicks
