Cleveland Cavaliers vs Philadelphia 76ers Preview

Philadelphia started slowly without their MVP frontrunner Joel Embid (knee) and was down 68-45 at half-time against a strong Western Conference contender in the Denver Nuggets last time out. 

It meant that despite a spirited rally after the break, they ultimately lost 104-95, and rookie PG Tyrese Maxey led them in scoring for the second time this season with a modest 13-point effort - which rather speaks for itself.

The first time he did so? He had 39 points, seven rebounds, six assists and two steals in 44 minutes against Denver themselves on a rare start without Embiid, Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris, among others – January 9.

Harris and Simmons were significantly below their season averages here. At the same time, Curry shot just 3-of-10 from the field - Doc Rivers' reserve backcourt trio of Maxey, Shake Milton and Matisse Thybulle impressed off the bench.

They must be better against a Cavaliers side enduring a three-game losing streak, keen to bounce back after being blown out by the Utah Jazz last time out. 

Collin Sexton was scoreless in five three-point attempts but still led them in scoring with 20. At the same time, backcourt partner Darius Garland added 18 points, five rebounds, and assists - no other teammate was into double-digit scoring as the league leaders thumped them in the early hours on Tuesday. How will they respond? 

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI is backing a Philly road win (82.8% probability), and why wouldn't you? Jarrett Allen (concussion), Larry Nance (illness) and Kevin Love (calf) are all listed as out or questionable for the hosts, three key big men that would otherwise help outmuscle an Embiid-less 76ers team when healthy. This is the 76ers' game to lose.
