76ers To Play Knicks At Madison Square Garden On Christmas

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It looks like we’re going to have a 76ers-Eagles 2017 Christmas double-header.

While the Eagles will play at home against the Raiders at 8:30pm on Monday, December 25th, 94WIP’s Spike Eskin reports the Sixers will play at the Knicks — likely earlier in the day.

The Sixers made it official Thursday evening.

Originally there was speculation that the Sixers could face the Lakers or Timberwolves on Christmas.

The Sixers will be hot ticket in 2017-18 thanks to the additions of Markelle Fultz and J.J. Redick and a, hopefully healthy, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
