This Friday night the Philadelphia 76ers will welcome the Chicago Bulls for an NBA Eastern Conference showdown. Our hosts are coming off a close OT win over Indiana 129-126 while the Chicago Bulls are coming off a win over Brooklyn 121-112.
The game is scheduled for 19:40 EST at the Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia.
Philadelphia is coming off their third straight win over Indiana. Unfortunately we could not see Embiid play against the Pacers due to a foot injury and it is likely that we will not see him this Friday either, however the 76ers were able to get the win thanks to the offense led by James Harden and his 26 points and 8 assists for the victory, accompanied by Tobias Harris and his 10 rebounds.
The 76ers average 112 points per game and 40 rebounds, the offense is led by Embiid with his 33 points per game, 9 rebounds and 4 assists, followed by Harden who contributes another 22 points and six rebounds.
On the other hand, the Bulls are coming off a thrilling game in which they not only stopped their own losing streak, but also put an end to Brooklyn’s 12-game winning streak. The offense was led by DeMar DeRozan with his 22 points, Nikola Vucevic with 13 rebounds and Goran Dragic dished out 6 assists.
The Bulls offense is averaging 114 points per game while the defense is allowing 115, something they need to start working on if they want to repeat the results they had against Brooklyn.
Even though the Bulls managed to beat Brooklyn and ruin their winning streak, they did it at home and now they have to travel to Philadelphia. The Bulls have not performed well this season playing as visitors and if Embiid can come back to play this game things will get even more difficult. I’m going with the 76ers.
