The 76ers (3-33) return to The Center to begin a season-long stretch of six consecutive home games. They host the Minnesota Timberwolves (12-22) at 7:00 PM EST on Monday. Both teams will be looking to end two-game losing streaks.
Philadelphia picked off the Phoenix Suns and the Sacramento Kings on the trip to triple their season win total but head home after dropping the final two legs to the Lakers and Clippers in Los Angeles. The 76ers showed off an ability to take advantage of other down-on-their-luck teams with those two wins but got another lesson in just how far away they are from competing at higher levels in a 130-99 loss to the Clippers that closed out the trip.
The Timberwolves are another team caught in a slump and have lost six of their last seven games without reaching 100 points in any of those contests. Minnesota shot 39.3 percent from the field in a 95-85 home loss to the defensively-challenged Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, including a 3-of-14 effort from 3-point range
The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 99.7 points on 44.6 percent shooting and allowing 102.7 points on 45.6 percent shooting. Andrew Wiggins is averaging 20.5 points and 1.7 assists while Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 16.1 points and 9.4 rebounds. Zach LaVine is dishing 3.2 assists and Gorgui Dieng is grabbing 6.3 rebounds. The Minnesota Timberwolves are shooting 32.4 percent from beyond the arc and 79.5 percent from the free throw line. The Timberwolves are allowing 35 percent shooting from deep and are forcing 14.8 turnovers per game. The Minnesota Timberwolves have lost eight of their last 10 road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers could use a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 92.5 points on 42 percent shooting and allowing 104.8 points on 45.8 percent shooting. Jahlil Okafor is averaging 17.3 points and 7.7 rebounds while Ish Smith is averaging 13.4 points and 7.6 assists. Robert Covington is grabbing 5.7 rebounds and Isaiah Canaan is dishing two assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 68.9 percent from the free throw line. The 76ers are allowing 36.1 percent shooting from deep and are forcing 14.4 turnovers per game. The Philadelphia 76ers have lost five straight home games. Jakarr Sampson and Hollis Thompson are questionable.
The Timberwolves are 7-17-1 ATS in their last 25 Monday games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference. The 76ers are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Northwest and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 home games. The Timberwolves are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Minnesota beat the Sixers 100-95 on Nov. 23 for its first home win of the season after losing both meetings last season. The loss dropped the Sixers to 0-15, part of their historic losing streak dating to last season.
The Sixers have won five of the past seven meetings with Minnesota in Philadelphia.
It will be a battle of division foes when the Brooklyn Nets (6-15) welcome the Philadelphia 76ers (1-21) to the Barclays Center. The game gets underway at 7:30 pm ET on Thursday, Dec. 10
Coming off a 51-point loss at home, the stumbling 76ers visit the site of one of their two road wins of this calendar year in Thursday night’s matchup with the Brooklyn Nets.
The Nets were victorious over the Rockets 110-105 on Tuesday. Joe Johnson had 22 points, eight assists, and five rebounds for Brooklyn. The 76ers, meanwhile, are coming off an ugly 119-68 loss to the Spurs on Monday. Nerlens Noel stood out for Philadelphia, recording 13 points, six rebounds, and two steals.
Second-chance opportunities are projected to be few and far between for the 76ers in this contest. They rank 28th in the NBA in offensive rebounding (offensive rebound percentage of 20.2%), while Brooklyn is fourth-best in the league on the defensive backboards (defensive rebound percentage of 78.4%).
The Nets are a seven-point favorite in this game and the Over/Under (O/U) is set at 194 points. The Nets are looking to improve on their records of 6-15 Straight Up (SU) and 12-9 Against The Spread (ATS). They are 7-3 ATS over their last 10 games.
On the other side, Philadelphia has a SU record of 1-21 and an ATS record of 11-10-1. In Eastern Conference games, Philadelphia has gone 0-12 SU and 5-7 ATS. When it comes to defending the rim, the 76ers are one of the best in the league with an average of 6.8 blocks per game.
This game marks the first time these teams will play this season. The last time the Nets and the 76ers played, Brooklyn won, bringing its SU record to 7-3 over the 76ers in the last 10 games. At 5-5, they are even ATS.
Here are some things to look for in tonight’s matchup:
Two struggling teams meet at the Wells Fargo Center as the Philadelphia 76ers host the Los Angeles Lakers in the regular season of the National Basketball Association.
The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to avoid history as they try to get their first win of the season after 19 games when they host Kobe Bryant and the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night. This will be the first road game for the Lakers since Bryant announced on The Player’s Tribune that he will be retiring from basketball at the end of the season.
Bryant is coming home to Philadelphia for the last time in his storied career, but the Sixers will try to spoil it and improve their 0-18 start to the season in front of an expected sold-out crowd at the Wells Fargo Center.
Philadelphia has been last in points per game differential at minus-12, last in points per game at 90.8 points, and last in turnovers per game at 17.9. They are also bottom five in assists per game, bottom two in field goal percentage, and bottom six in rebounding.
The Lakers offense has been staggering as well, as they rank last in field goal percentage and bottom four in assists per game. They are also bottom four in opponent points per game, allowing 106 points per contest, and have been second to last in points per game differential at minus-8.9.
This is just a quick glimpse at how awful both these teams have been this season and what to expect from each team heading into this Tuesday night battle.
For the Lakers, this will be the first of a long eight-game road trip which consists of eight games in 11 nights, including three sets of back to backs. The team enters this trip on a seven-game road losing streak with their last road victory coming against the Brooklyn Netson November 6.
Both the Lakers and Sixers were in action Sunday evening, as L.A. played the Indiana Pacers and Philly played the Memphis Grizzlies
Meanwhile, the 76ers have had a hoard of injuries to key players this season which has played a significant role in their disappointing start. Sunday against Memphis, Nerlens Noel sat out with knee soreness and is listed questionable for this upcoming contest. Philly was led by the 16 points of Isaiah Canaan, while Robert Covingtonchipped in 12 points, seven rebounds, four assists, and seven steals.
Covington has been a defensive spark for the Sixers since returning from his knee injury. The 24-year-old has been averaging 7.0 steals over the last three games and has been averaging 3.6 steals for the season.
Last year, the Lakers swept the season series, 2-0, between these two teams, and the last time these two teams clashed, the game went to overtime, where the Lakers escaped with a narrow two-point victory behind Clarkson’s 26 points.
It should be an interesting battle between two of the worst teams in the league
Philadelphia 76ers (0-15) at Boston Celtics (7-7)
NBA Basketball: Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 7:30 pm (TD Garden)
The Line: Boston Celtics -10.5 — Over/Under: 199
The Boston Celtics will look for back-to-back wins at home for the first time this season when they entertain the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night
Boston returns home following a brief two-game road swing, which included a 111-101 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday followed by a 121-97 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday
The Celtics follow up their visit from the 76ers with a home date against the Washington Wizards on Friday night, followed by a five-game road swing that starts against the Orlando Magic on Sunday.
The Celtics have lost three of their last four and will be licking their wounds after losing to the Hawks by 121-97 last night in a romp. Avery Bradley led the team with 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting but had little support as Isaiah Thomas scored just 14 points on three of 11 shooting. As a team, the Celtics shot 41.5 percent but their offense was the least of their troubles as they allowed the Hawks to shoot 56.3 percent from the field. The Celtics have really been playing poorly lately, but their hot start to the season means that they are still 7-7 overall and 3-3 on the road.
Meanwhile, the 76ers are still searching for their first win of the season after 15 games. A fast start to their game against the Timberwolves on Monday had Philly fans believing the streak was over, but the 76ers would go on to lose by 100-95 despite 25 points from Jahlil Okafor and 18 points Robert Covington. The Sixers really don’t deserve to be 0-15 on the season because they’ve played hard to earn double digit leads in their last two games but just can’t seem to get over the line.
In ATS trends, the 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last seven road games and 1-5 ATS in their last six against the Eastern Conference, while the Celtics are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games following a loss of more than 10 points and 36-15-1 ATS in their last 52 games playing on zero days rest.
