The Oklahoma City Thunder is hosting the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Thunder are riding a two-game losing streak, being blown out on their last game in Indiana against the Pacers. Fortunately, they will encounter a 76ers team that’s not been performing so well away from home, meaning that they could have a chance of stealing a win from one of the best teams in the league. Aside Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma’s guards are struggling to score the ball, a problem that is costing the team at the moment as they seem too dependent on their scoring to be competitive in most games. Thunder’s frontcourt will be largely overpowered due to Embiid and Horford’s presence in the paint, even though Steven Adams’ a great rim protector and more than capable of hanging with the best in the league.
As for Brett Brown’s team, they’re coming from an unexpected loss in Orlando against the Magic, even though they were without Joel Embiid. As mentioned above, their away record is not something to be proud of, especially when you’re considered one of the main contenders for the Larry O’Brien trophy, and they’ll need to improve on that regard if they want to challenge for the top spot in the Eastern Conference standings. MVP candidate, Joel Embiid, should be ready to suit up for tonight’s game, giving them a big boost and making them clear favorites against the Thunder.
It’s expected a relatively easy game for the Sixers tonight due to the difference in the quality of each squad, and because the Thunder are going through a rebuilding process.
