So far, Zach Lavine has lived up and is a potent scorer in the NBA with his wide repertoire of skills. Polish player, Lauri Markkanen has not lived up to the expectations on his end as he is expected to improve this season but it seems he is on a career slump. Still good numbers for Markkanen but not overwhelming. Wendell Carter Jr. has left a big hole in the Bulls center position and getting him healthy has been a big whammy for the team. They need to rely on their speed to get a chance against the Sixers but you have to deal with Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris as well. The Bulls have a good chance against the Sixer who will most probably play without Joel Embiid but this time around, they may not have Lauri Markkanen with them as well.

Philadelphia 76ers Betting

With high expectations, the Sixers were on their way to become a legitimate contender in the East. Suddenly this team is marred by the media on what is happening off the court and it seemed to have a bad effect on them. Still, the Sixers will try to lock on Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid to lead the team as they were the product of “The Process” but they also have to manage a disgruntled Al Horford who feels that his game is not maximized. Tobias Harris has become a solid player for them but they need more from their role players to come out since the star players are struggling. Joel Embiid is still questionable to play in this game after the freak injury with his finger.
