The San Antonio Spurs have one of the best and deepest benches in basketball, and that group could see some extended use on Monday night when the team visits the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia 76ers, who are no longer among the league’s winless teams.
The Sixers could get a boost, however, as it’s expected they’ll welcome back Jahlil Okafor from his suspension. Philadelphia averages a league-high 18.7 turnovers per game, while San Antonio’s 352.9 passes per game lead the league.
San Antonio Spurs:
The Spurs got a season-high 54 points from their bench in a 108-105 home victory over the Boston Celtics on Saturday. Boris Diaw put up a season-high 16, to go along with 15 points from Manu Ginobili. For the Spurs, it was their seventh victory in their last eight games.
Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich will be pitted against one of his friends and former assistants in Brett Brown. Popovich sat Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard the last time these teams met. Tony Parker has missed two of the last four meetings, and Tim Duncan didn’t play in either of the Spurs’ visits to Philadelphia a year ago.
While Okafor is eligible to return for the Sixers, he did miss Sunday’s practice with an upper respiratory infection and is listed as questionable for this game. The rookie out of Duke leads all first-year players with 17.2 points per game.
Guard Isaiah Canaan is the team’s third-leading scorer with 11.7 points per game. He’s also questionable with a right ankle injury. The last time Okafor played marked the team’s only win. The Sixers beat the Los Angeles Lakers 103-91 on Tuesday.

Free NBA Prediction:
It’s never fun giving away this many points, but if you’re eager to make a play on this game, the Spurs are the way to go given their strong play of late. They’ve also won nine in a row against the lowly Sixers.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs -12.5
As long as Coach Popovich keeps his key players out there long enough to run up the score, building, and maintaining the margin needed to cover the spread here will be easy for a Spurs team that is firing on all cylinders at the moment.
