NBA Pick: Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers – Tuesday, February 11
Say what you would like about the Philadelphia 76ers (33-21), but they’re absolutely dominant in your home, and on Tuesday night, they will be going for their 25th win at 27 home competitions when they take about the Los Angeles Clippers (37-16) at the Wells Fargo Center.
After enduring four straight road defeats, Philadelphia would head outside to acquire a second game when they’d claim a victory.
Sixers shield Furkan Korkmaz would last to light up resistance also carrying so.
The elongate that Korkmaz is currently on is historical for Philadelphia with his 65 combined points becoming the most by any bench contributor because Ron Anderson had a length of 62 points — this in November 1988. Also in the last two contests, Korkmaz was outstanding from behind the arc hitting on 13 shots.
The Sixers would also get manufacturing too in the game for example Joel Embiid putting a prominent stat line of 28 points, 12 rebounds, five assists and four blocked shots, against Chicago — that, of course, gathered for a double-double. They would also get amounts together with the Australian documenting his fifth triple-double of the season with 10 assists, 19 points and 10 rebounds. Throughout his dominating performance, Embiid could place a finger to his mouth toward the audience to attempt to silence Bulls fans, and needless to say, it wasn’t taken well with displeasure pouring down to the seven’0??? large guy.
After departing the Cleveland Cavaliers in bits on Sunday with a heap of momentum, they’ll be coming to Philadelphia for the Los Angeles Clippers. In the history of this franchise of the Cavaliers, it was the worst home defeat that night they would suffer.
A member of the Philadelphia 76ers, Lou Williams would lead the Clippers from the Cavs with Paul George behind him incorporating 22, with 25 points onto the stat sheet. In his first match with Los Angeles since the trade out of New York, Marcus Morris would put 10 points up.
In which they’d have a lead to the fourth quarter, the Clippers will probably be rested and full of endurance, and this due to their performance against Cleveland. As a result of the blowaway, the starters to Los Angeles managed to just kick back and relax to get a good chunk of the second half.
Kawhi Leonard would sit out for the game of this effort with a knee injury, however, the Clippers would have no problem blowing Cleveland out of the sport.
Los Angeles made a movement that was mammoth-sized when they inserted a roster that’s already deep and loaded and Morris. And proof of this is that the fact of the number of accidents they have dealt with this year, and they have still put up an elite 37-16 record so far this season.
Patrick Beverley has missed the previous two games due to a strained groin and he will be out of actions against Philadelphia — yet another illustration of an injury-plagued year old.
But again, the Los Angeles Clippers are fantastic this year coming with a 37-16 record to the great state of Pennsylvania , while going a winning 15-11 as a team.
The Philadelphia 76ers are extraordinarily elite at home this year, putting a 24-2 record in the Wells Fargo Center — you to the Miami Heat and another to the Dallas Mavericks — but when you speak about a third reduction to a third group, there aren’t many teams that you would choose across the Los Angeles Clippers. And with the Clippers, not only could they beat against them, they get the win in a breeze and could easily come into Philadelphia.
Together with the Sixers and Clips you can anticipate the atmosphere in Philly to become playoff-like and electric. Together with the Clippers, they’re on a mission to prove they’re equally kings of L.A. and the complete National Basketball Association. For the 76ers, their position is a little more complicated, trying to not lose the narrative they are actual contenders for the title — something that hastens more and more everyday.
And let’s be honest here, yeahthey may have two wins in a row, but let us move ahead and figure out that the two of these games were at home. And let us also point out that the two of those wins were against Memphis Grizzlies and the lowly Chicago Bulls. Wins are wins, and I guess, but not is sunny in Philadelphia. There are significant problems. (Somebody owes Jimmy Butler a apology, because he was obviously not the issue last season.)
The 76ers were anticipated to rally with 2 wins against Chicago and Memphis after losing four consecutive games . Thus, all Philadelphia did was match with expectations. The Clippers are a very different animal, and through the evening, their defense in the street is going to cause headache after headache for Philadelphia. This will be the biggest benefit for Los Angeles from the Sixers: Defense. More leverage that they have is with the Clippers performing on the boards than Philly has this season, and that is saying something — nobody out-rebounds the Philadelphia 76ers. Nicely, Los Angeles does.
There’s really no debate there when it comes to who’s the best player on the court, and that’s what will ultimately offer the victory to the Los Angeles Clippers tonight. Give me Kawhi Leonard to put up big numbers and send the Clip Prove a triumph at the City of Brotherly Love, and also delivering the Sixers their next home loss of the season and sending them into more media chaos they’re not valid contenders — it’s been a tiny rough time in Philadelphia. Clippers give me the under, pay for the spread and win.
