The 76ers are Now on a Three-game Losing Streak

The Philadelphia 76ers have been facing challenges recently, primarily due to the absence of key players because of injuries. In their latest matchup against the Portland Trail Blazers, the 76ers were without two of their primary starters and suffered a 104-130 defeat. Kelly Oubre Jr. stood out for the 76ers, leading the team with 26 points and 6 rebounds.

Patrick Beverly, playing as the starting point guard, contributed with 14 points and 5 assists. Paul Reed, filling in at center for the absent Embiid, managed to score 11 points and secure 6 rebounds. Tobias Harris also chipped in with 11 points and 4 rebounds.

The game concluded with only three 76ers players scoring in double digits, highlighting the impact of missing their star players.

Team statistics for the game were 37 out of 83 field goals (44.6%), 5 out of 29 three-pointers (17.2%), and 25 out of 28 free throws (89.3%), along with 17 assists, 34 total rebounds, 6 steals, 5 blocks, and 14 turnovers.

In team news for the 76ers, Robert Covington is out due to a knee injury, De’Anthony Melton is sidelined with a back issue, and Kenneth Lofton Jr. is absent for personal reasons. Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey are both questionable for the game with knee and ankle injuries, respectively.

  • Small forward: Andrew Wiggins
  • Power forward: Jonathan Kuminga

Stephen Curry remains the pivotal factor for the Golden State Warriors’ aspirations to reach the playoffs this season, likely through the play-in stage, given the team’s overall underwhelming performance. Despite the team’s struggles, Curry has maintained a strong individual performance, averaging 27.0 points per game.

Philadelphia 76ers projected starting lineup: 

  • Point guard: Patrick Beverly
  • Shooting guard: Kelly Oubre Jr.
  • Small forward: Nicolas Batum
  • Power forward: Tobias Harris
  • Center: Paul Reed

On the other side, Joel Embiid has been exceptional this season for the Philadelphia 76ers. His outstanding play is a major reason the 76ers are positioned high in the Eastern Conference standings. As the current MVP and the league’s leading scorer with an average of 36 points per game, Embiid’s significant presence, especially in paint protection, has been instrumental, utilizing his size to great effect.

76ers vs Warriors Predictions and Betting Tips

After suffering narrow losses to the Kings and Lakers, the Golden State Warriors are eager to make a strong comeback in their game against the Philadelphia 76ers. The Warriors are in dire need of a win, and with Joel Embiid’s participation remaining uncertain until the day of the game, this could be an ideal chance for them to clinch a victory.

Even if Joel Embiid is able to play at the Chase Center, the Sixers might still encounter difficulties, especially as they are on the second night of a back-to-back schedule. Given Tyrese Maxey’s uncertain status and the Warriors having had ample rest before this game, Golden State appears to have a better chance of winning this matchup.

The prediction here is that the Golden State Warriors will defeat the Philadelphia 76ers.
