San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs enter this evening’s matchup sporting a 27-21 record. Although it’s not the most impressive record, it’s still good enough to rank San Antonio 6th overall in the West. Right now the Conference is led by the Warriors who have a 6 ½ game lead over San Antonio. But more importantly, the 8th seeded Los Angeles Clippers are but a game and a half behind the Spurs. With that in mind, it’s obvious that the Spurs playoff standing is flimsy at best. And although they’d like to improve their postseason chances this evening, the odds aren’t predicting a good evening for the Spurs. However, Philadelphia isn’t all that much statistically better than the Spurs. Right now the Spurs are scoring 111.4 per game, which matches the 115.6 that Philly averages fairly well. Defensively the Spurs are a little better off than Philly as they’re giving up 109.2 per game while Philadelphia allots 111.8.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (21.4 ppg, 6.1 rpg, 6.4 apg), LaMarcus Aldridge (20.8 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 2.5 apg), and Rudy Gay (13.9 ppg, 6.5 rpg, 2.4 apg).
The 76ers step into this Wednesday night contest sporting a brilliant 31-17 record that ranks them 2nd in the Atlantic Division. But in the Eastern Conference, Philly currently ranks 4th overall. Just 4 ½ games behind the conference leading Milwaukee Bucks, there’s no denying that Philly is right in the mix of things atop the Eastern Conference. And with a 4-1 record in their last 5 games, Philadelphia has the momentum to take care of San Antonio at home this evening. However, the 76ers might have to compete without Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler. Fultz is listed as out for tonight’s matchup and Butler and Simmons are both listed as day-to-day.
Players to Watch: Joel Embiid (27.1 ppg, 13.2 rpg, 3.6 apg), Jimmy Butler (19.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 3.4 apg), and JJ Redick (18.4 ppg, 2.2 rpg, 2.8 apg).
