Sixers' big man will play on Christmas vs. Knicks

He's played in Christmas games before - and made clear again he's not a fan of them - and he thought his young teammates responded well to their first opportunity.

On a sleepy Christmas Day afternoon, we all expected to down a little bit of eggnog, turn on the TV and wake up to Joel Embiid and Kristaps Porzingis taking over a 76ers-Knicks holiday clash.

"People are texting me congratulations, but I probably won't text a lot of them back", Kanter said.

Knicks: Hall of Famer Bernard King, who set the Christmas record when he scored 60 points for the Knicks against the Nets in 1984, was at the game. However, during the closing minutes of the fourth quarter, a Knicks fan still tried to get under the skin of Embiid. Philadelphia then went on an 11-4 run to take control. McConnell had 15 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals off the bench as he outdueled New York's Doug McDermott, who had five points and a negative-17 plus/minus ratio. Brown said the objective of having the guard from Washington with the team was "to make sure that he understands completely he is a significant part of our future and that we are with him unconditionally".

ABOUT THE 76ERS (14-18): Embiid was still bothered by a sore lower back in Saturday's loss and he picked up a technical foul as frustrations began to bubble up."He wants to do so much more and he can't", coach Brett Brown told reporters of Embiid.

"I'm going to be capable of making the right pass or shooting the right shot".

Opening gifts is great, and spending time with family is cool, but the best part of Christmas Day is all the National Basketball Association action. The Knicks entered the game with a seven-game home winning streak over Philadelphia despite trailing the all-time series 201-244.

76ers: Visit Portland on Thursday.

New York Knicks center Enes Kanter was everywhere today. NY heads on the road for a three-game trip, starting with Chicago on Wednesday.
