Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Philadelphia 76ers vs Los Angeles Clippers 3/1/2020 – The Los Angeles Clippers host the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday, looking to stretch their winning streak to four. The Clippers are NBA odds on favorite to prevail over the 76ers who are dealing with manpower problems. Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are out against the Clips, meaning head coach Brett Brown will need to turn to someone else. Los Angeles is no pushover, meaning Philly will have its work cut out this weekend.

The woes of the Sixers continue heading into the homestretch of the season. Embiid joins Simmons in the sidelines, leaving coach Brown with a huge void. Tobias Harris will need to step up, together with Josh Richardson and Al Horford. Their usual offensive scoring average of 108.7 points is likely to take a hit, same on the offensive end. Philly is limiting opponents to 106.5 points but that may vary heading into Sunday’s match.

The Clippers should have little trouble against Philadelphia to register their fourth straight win. A win could also help them break a tie at second spot. They are currently toting the same 40-19 win-loss record. Kawhi Leonard and Paul George will lead the charge anew. However, it will be interesting how long coach Doc Rivers will use them. If the game gets out of hand early, expect the second stringers to get extended minutes and give both stars much-needed rest.
