Philadelphia 76ers vs Utah Jazz Preview

Will he, won't he? Philly's All-Star PF snub Tobias Harris remains questionable on the injury report, having missed games against Cleveland and Indiana with a right knee contusion. Philadelphia played it safe and held him out as they cruised to a 130-114 win over Indiana in the early hours on Tuesday. 

However, they're hopeful the 28-year-old returns in their final game before the All-Star break against the Utah Jazz tonight. Head coach Doc Rivers said:

"I hope so. He really tried to play tonight, but we more made the call [not to]. We need him, hopefully can get him back next game." 

He's averaging 20.2 points (career-high 51.3% FG), 7.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 41.1% from the three-point range this term.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Utah Jazz Betting Tips

ESPN's BPI has given Utah a narrow advantage (53.5%), and I'd be surprised if they didn't: Quin Snyder's men are the NBA-leading side through 35 games and look determined to lock up the top seed out West. 

Despite their COVID-19 related issues earlier this term, Philadelphia is the Eastern Conference leaders and boast an MVP frontrunner in Embiid - undoubtedly hoping to make up for a lost time, having missed their 134-123 defeat two weeks ago with a back injury.

I'm inclined to back Utah because they have more scoring depth, largely from Jordan Clarkson, averaging a career-high 18.2 points per game this term.

However, Philly tends to rise in big matches (Celtics twice, Lakers, Brooklyn) and will want to protect home court. So with that in mind, I'm backing Rivers' men to get it done.
