Preview: Sixers look for 7th straight win, host the Los Angeles Clippers tonight in South Philly
The Sixers look to remain perfect on their current home stand as they host the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Clippers enter tonight completely healthy. Both Paul George and Kawhi Leonard will be in the lineup as LA looks to stay above the .500 mark on the road this season. The Clippers are currently in 5th place in the Western Conference Standings at 19-14 but are pretty mediocre on the road, sitting at just 8-7 on the year.
Still, the Clippers have won back-to-back games and five of six overall, most recently against Charlotte on Tuesday night. The Clippers hit a season-high in points and three pointers made (23) in the 126-105 win over the Hornets.
As for the Sixers, they have won six straight games to improve to 13-5 at home this season. They have won eight straight games at home and are 6-1 since James Harden has returned to the lineup.
The Sixers are coming off a 113-93 route of the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night and are averaging 120.3 points per game during their current six-game winning streak. Joel Embiid of course, is leading the offensive effort averaging an NBA-best 32.5 points per game and is now (finally) listed in the Top 5 of NBA MVP odds.
The sportsbooks currently have the 76ers as 3.5 point favorites tonight against the Clippers, with the total set at O/U 216 points.
