Two struggling Eastern Conference teams meet at the Madison Square Garden as the New York Knicks host the Washington Wizards in the regular season of the National Basketball Association.

The match-up is on February 9, 2016 at 8:00 PM ET.

Both teams are below the .500 mark this season and are looking for a spot in the playoffs. A win over each other should be a big deal for the franchises.

Between the two, the Wizards are dubbed as the better team on paper but have found wins hard to come by as they struggle with injuries and very inconsistent playing.

The Wizards have lost six of their last eight games and are coming off a painful 108-104 loss at New Orleans. John Wall had a big game of 23 points and 10 assists, Bradley Beal added 22 points while Otto Porter Jr had 20 points but it still wasn’t enough to keep up with the Hornets who outscored them by 60-46 in a dominant second half. With the loss, Washington falls to 22-27 on the season which leaves them three games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Knicks have lost nine of their last 10 games and are coming off a fifth straight loss, a 101-96 defeat to the Nuggets at home. Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony led the team with 21 points each while Arron Afflalo chipped in with 15 points, but the Knicks just went ice-cold in a 24-17 fourth quarter dominated by the streaky Nuggets. With the loss, New York fell to 23-31 overall and 14-14 at home where they’ve lost six of their last seven.

The Knicks are allowing 30.4 percent shooting from deep and are forcing 11.5 turnovers per game. The New York Knicks have lost five of their last six road games.

The Philadelphia 76ers need a victory in order to snap an eight-game skid. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 91.1 points on 41.6 percent shooting and allowing 104.2 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Jahlil Okafor is averaging 17.8 points and 8.1 rebounds while Robert Covington is averaging 13.7 points and 1.9 assists.

Game Notes:

  • The last time they met, the Sixers had just beaten the Lakers for their first (and only) win of the season. New York prevailed, 99-87, although Philadelphia was without center Jahlil Okafor. The No. 3 overall pick leads all rookies in scoring (17.8 PPG) and is third in rebounding (8.1 RPG) behind Porzingis and Towns.
  • Okafor returned from a team-imposed suspension and has shown improvement in one key area of weakness — free throw shooting. The Duke big man has converted 22 of his last 24 attempts from the charity stripe after shooting just 51 percent in college.
  • Tony Wroten and Kendall Marshall have returned from injury, giving Brett Brown two experienced options at point guard. Okafor could stand to benefit from their playmaking abilities, as could Philly shooters, who have combined to make 32 percent of 3-pointers this year — 25th best in the NBA.
