The Sixers head to New Orleans looking to reclaim their place on top of the Eastern Conference standings.
Philly welcomed back big man Embiid from injury and the All-Star hasn’t missed a beat, scoring 24 & 35 points across his last two game, w while getting to the line a jaw dropping 37 times!
NOLA defence has been atrocious this season, the young side have allowed their opposition to score an ave of 116.2 points across their last ten games, a far cry from the 76ers 104.9 points across the same trip.
The Pels will be without their secondary scoring option in Brandon Ingram and although Zion has impressed this season, the young gun has Buckleys chances of going basket for basket with Philly’s big three.
Leg 1: Celtics over Timberwolves
Celtics and the Timberwolves meet for the first time this season as both sides take to the court at TD Garden.
The Timberwolves have the worse record on the road in the league (5-22) and shouldn’t trouble a Celtics outfit who are starting to find their groove.
Leg 2: Bucks over Hornets
Even without the current MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo available, the Buck have the manpower to see off a Hornets outfit who are also without two pivotal pieces in Ball and Hayward.
The Bucks are returning home after a six game road trip, with their record in Milwaukee standing at 18-7, while they’re 18-9 against conference rivals.
Leg 3: Denver over Spurs
Denver are out to secure their eighth win on the trot, while relegating the Spurs to their fourth straight loss!
The Nuggets played host to the Spurs two days ago, seeing off their conference rivals 106-96.
Nikola Jokic staked his claim for MVP honours by stuffing the stat sheet with 25 points, 10 dimes and 9 boards.
