Game Preview


On January 19, at Amway Center, the Philadelphia 76ers (26-13) will try to extend their 3-game winning streak against the Orlando Magic (22-19).


Joel Embiid, a dominant player for Philadelphia, alters the 76ers’ strategy on both sides of the court. This season, Philadelphia is 23-6 when Embiid is starting. In addition to his amazing offensive ability, the reigning MVP also plays backline defense for the 76ers. This season, Embiid has scored more points than minutes and leads the NBA in average points per game (35.1). Moreover, Embiid has averaged 37.0 points on 56% shooting over the course of 18 games in which he has scored at least 30 points. In addition to his impressive scoring, Embiid ranks among the NBA’s top 5 rebounders with 11.6 per game and averages a career-high 6.1 assists per game. 5 players for the 76ers are listed as injured. Robert Covington (knee), Mo Bamba (knee), and De’Anthony Melton (back) all out. Additionally, Kenneth Lofton Jr. will miss time due to his assignment to the G League.



After going 3-7 over their previous 10 games, Orlando had a rough run of play that caused them to fall down in the rankings in recent weeks. They are currently 8th in the East with a 22-19 record, and they have now opened up a 2-game deficit to 7th-place Indiana. The Orlando Magic lost their most recent match to the Atlanta Hawks 106-104, their fourth defeat in their previous 5 games. Franz Wagner, the Magic’s 2nd-leading scorer, will be absent for the ninth consecutive game due to an ankle ailment. They will be counting on their strong home record (13-5) and solid defense (ranked 3rd in adjusted defensive rating) to win. The Magic are among the top 3 teams in the NBA in terms of total defensive efficiency this season, surrendering only 111.1 points per 100 possessions.
