76ers NBA Basketball

76ers Will Sit Embiid Tonight

The fans at Quicken Loans Arena will see the Philadelphia 76ers and the Cleveland Cavaliers when they take their seats on Saturday. The game will be telecast in each teams local market at 8 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Cavaliers as -6-point favorites versus the 76ers, while the game’s total opened at 220.5. The linesmakers now have the Cavs as 7-point favorites over the 76ers. The total has dropped to 219.

Cavs Look to Start New Winning Streak Against 76ers

Cleveland was a 106-102 loser in its last match on the road against the Indiana Pacers. They failed to cover the -3.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 208 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The loss ended their winning streak at 13 games. A win would have meant a team record for the longest winning streak.

The Cavs were once 5-7 and facing questions about their age and roster. All of those issues were put away by a winning streak that started Nov. 11. An ice-cold fourth quarter against the Pacers in which the Cavaliers scored one point in the first 5:55 of the quarter all but ensured an end to the streak.

The Cavs beat the Sixers 113-91 on Nov. 27 in Philadelphia. Embiid was the lone bright spot for the Sixers.. He scored 30 points to go with 11 rebounds. He was so disruptive that Kevin Love, who was guarding Embiid, said he apologized at the end of that game to James.

The Cavs smothered the Sixers in the first meeting on defense. They held Philadelphia to .375 shooting. James posted 30 points, 14 rebounds and three assists.

76ers Still have Young Talent Against Cavs

Philadelphia was a 107-104 loser in its last match at home against the Lakers. They failed to cover the -8.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 211 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Sixers will still have young star power against the Cavs. Ben Simmons registered his third triple-double of his rookie season Thursday. He coudn’t help stave off a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Simmons had 12 points, 13 rebounds, 15 assists.

Simmons became just the third rookie in NBA history to have three triple-doubles in his first 23 games. He is in great company, as he joined Oscar Robertson and Magic Johnson as the only two other rookies to accomplish the feat.

Simmons is 6 feet 10 and sometimes is compared with King James. They are similar is style and stature.
