Philadelphia 76ers vs. Golden State Warriors – Thursday, January 31st
When: 10:30 pm ET
Where: Oracle Arena, Oakland, California
Stream: Drama on TNT, NBA League Pass
Online NBA Betting Odds:
The 76ers enter tonight’s matchup sporting a highly successful 33-18 record. That record ranks Philadelphia 2nd overall in the Atlantic Division and 3rd overall in the Eastern Conference. Right now the East is heralded by the Milwaukee Bucks, who currently own a 4 game lead over the 76ers. And since the 4th seeded Indiana Pacers are but a ½ game behind Philly, it’s safe to say that the club needs to rack up some wins in the coming days. Unfortunately they just happen to be pegged as the best team in the West this evening, on the road on top of that. Since Philly is 0-10 in their last 10 games against Golden State, it’s safe to assume they lose this road game tonight. The odds seem to think so as well, seeing as how big of an underdog Philly is pegged as.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (27.2 ppg, 13.3 rpg, 3.6 apg), Jimmy Butler (19.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 3.5 apg), and JJ Redick (18.4 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 2.8 apg).
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors enter tonight’s action sporting a 36-14 record that pegs them as the top dog in both the Pacific Division and Western Conference. Entering tonight’s action riding an 11 game winning streak, there’s no question that the Warriors are red hot at the moment. And with their superstars all healthy this evening, it’s obvious Golden State will triumph over Philly once again. The numbers make this much clear tonight. After all, Golden State comes in with the No. 1 scoring defense and the 20th best defense in the league. The 76ers on the other hand, come in with the 4th best scoring offense but 22nd best defense in the league.
Players to Watch: Stephen Curry (29.3 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 5.4 apg), Kevin Durant (27.7 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 5.9 apg), and Klay Thompson (21.7 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 2.0 apg).
