Philadelphia 76ers Betting

The Philadelphia 76ers got bumped by the Memphis Grizzlies by six points, 100-116, during their most recent match. The team rested Joel Embiid and paid a huge price. Tobias Harris did his best to lead the team with 21 points and eight rebounds while Shake Milton came off the bench with 14 points. Ben Simmons had an off night doing just seven points, seven rebounds and four assists. The Sixers are still in a see-saw battle with the Brooklyn Nets for the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference. They are now below them but a win here would help them reclaim the top spot.
