The New York Knicks will welcome the Philadelphia 76ers inside the Madison Square Garden for a holiday treat this new season (h/t Shams Charania of The Athletic). 

Prior to the announcement of Charania, it was James Harden who spilled an idea that the Sixers will indeed visit the Knicks on Christmas Day. 

This marks the second-straight year that the Knicks will be featured on X-Mas day. Meanwhile, the Sixers will enter the snow stage for the first time since 2019.

The said matchup officially completes the Christmas Day slate of the NBA this 2022-2023 season, wherein the other four key battles were released earlier since yesterday.
