Warriors roster make-up

What jumps out to me when it comes to the Warriors is the presence of two high-octane playmakers in Green and Curry. Green can dish around 7-11 assists regularly, Curry can dish 5-7 regularly, but mostly, the team as a whole makes the right pass while swinging the ball around which makes offense much more easier. Now, we know Curry is one of the best scorers to play the game but Wiggins and Poole are also well-adept at creating their offense and can fetch 15-20 points. Off the bench, Porter, Toscano-Anderson, Payton II, Bjelica, all have stepped up their games at different junctures. Even without Klay Thompson and James Wiseman, the team looks slated for a big season, which makes them all the more formidable when both of them return.

That is why the Warriors have scored in the 110-120 points range regularly this season and even if the Suns held them under 100 and they have scored 104-107 in some games recently, you can bank on their offense to come around. On the defensive end, Draymond Green is one of the best defenders in the league, Wiggins is a pesky presence, Curry can fight through screens while Kevon Looney can hold the middle using his athleticism and length. Off the bench, Otto Porter is also a serviceable defender. That is the reason why the Warriors hold teams usually in the 90-105 points range and that is why they have won so many games.

76ers roster make-up

Unlike the Warriors, the 76ers lack playmaking options. With Ben Simmons out of the picture, the team has trouble getting into offensive sets, and it is usually Joel Embiid setting it up at the post. That is why the team has scored around 88-105 points in most games and finds itself struggling in high-scoring games. One another reason for the recurring offensive slump is the play of Tyrese Maxey, whose scoring range has gone from 20-25 points to 8-13 points. Still, the 76ers have two active scorers in Seth Curry and Tobias Harris, who can combine for 35-40 points regularly. And of course, Joel Embiid can even go as high as 40 points on his day but apart from these three scoring options, bench options like Shake Milton, Furkan Korkmaz, Andre Drummond have been way too unreliable.

The 76ers are a decent defensive team and have held squads to below 100 as well. However, that has been much difficult against elite scoring teams and that is why Jazz and Hornets were able to pile up 115+ points against what is an otherwise tight defense. That is why the 76ers have to fix the offense because in high-scoring games, if it abandons them, they are in a world of trouble. I believe Philly needs a playmaker desperately, and that can be the asking price for Ben Simmons.

Here are some quick-hitter related to the game.

  • 76ers have scored 96, 110, 127(OT), 98, 87 in the last five games;
  • 76ers have allowed 118, 106, 124(OT), 96, 88 in the last five games;
  • Warriors have scored 104, 126, 107, 118, 96 in the last five games;
  • Warriors have allowed 94, 95, 112, 96, 104 in the last five games;
  • Warriors have won seven games and lost two games away from home;
  • 76ers have won just five games and lost six games at home. They have a better away from home record;
  • Stephen Curry has scored 21, 31, 27, 23 points in the last four games;
  • Jordan Poole has scored in the 17-20 points usually this season;
  • Draymond Green has grabbed 8-12 rebounds and dished 7-11 assists a bunch of times;
  • Joel Embiid has grabbed 8-18 rebounds in the last seven games;
  • Seth Curry has dished 5 or more assists in three of the last seven games;
  • Andre Iguodala is questionable for the Warriors;
  • Ben Simmons is likely to be traded from the Sixers while Grant Riller continues to miss time with an injury;
  • Do check the injury list before placing your bets.

Points Range: Now, Warriors have the potential to put up 125 points and can also clamp down on teams to hold them under 100 or so. That is why most of their wins have been blowout wins and despite their scoring range, the overall points range doesn’t touch 230 most of the time. On the other hand, the Sixers team can defend well on their day but against the Warriors, they are going to face a lot of match-up problems. That is why you have to believe that the Warriors can log a 110-120 points range here. I believe the overall total range is 220-230 points here.

Prediction: Of course, the Warriors are the overwhelming favourites during most of the games and this case is no different. I think the Sixers have the potential to be much better and their defense can also be among the elite squads, however, I also believe that they are going to struggle a lot without a playmaker too. I go for the Warriors here with a scoreline of 119:107.
