The Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Philadelphia 76ers in this early season Eastern Conference showdown.
Cleveland has won 6 in a row against the 76ers.
Lebron James is putting up MVP numbers this season, averaging nearly a triple double in the first 5 games. He is averaging 22 points, 10 assists, and 9 rebounds per game. For his career he has put up 27 points per game against the 76ers.
With their weakness at the SF position look for James to put up a triple double in this one.
Kyrie Irving has been an efficient scoring matching this season.
The All League point guard is putting up great numbers, scoring 26 a game, but his assists numbers are down from last year. I don’t see him having any trouble going up against guys like Nick Stauskas, so he and Lebron could both easily top 40 points in this contest.
Even though he is not shooting the ball at an efficient rate, Kevin Love is clearly an important part of the offense this year.
His numbers are identical to what we saw during his time in Minnesota, He will face 2 tough young defensive players in Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid, but his ability to stretch the floor and knock down 3’s will keep this offense in a groove all game.
The Cavaliers defense will have to improve throughout the course of the season, as they are giving up 104 points per game.
The 76ers tanked for years to acquire high draft picks and build a long term future dubbed “The Process”.
This resulted in drafting talented but injured big man Joel Embiid, potential superstar Ben Simmons, and Jahlil Okafor. With Simmons hurts the fan base is looking to Embiid to give them hope for the future.
Embiid has delivered huge numbers in limited action. The coaching staff wants to keep him at around 20 minutes a game due to his foot issues , but he should see an increase as the season goes on.
He is averaging 17 points, almost 7 rebounds per game and 3 nearly 3 blocks per game.
Jahlil Okafor is a back to a basket center who doesn’t have a problem scoring.
His style of play, and slow feet on defense do not translate well against the fast paced offenses of today’s NBA, and the center has been coming off of the bench as the Sixers 6th man.
If he can continue his strong play he should be a valuable trade piece when the deadline nears. Against the Cavs second unit look for him to put up 16 points and 6 rebounds.
Nerlens Noel has been the discussion of trade rumors since Okafor was drafted, but the talented defensive center has a style of play that works well with Embiid.
His presence on the front line not only picks up blocks and the occasional steal, but he also alters a lot of shots due to his length and wingspan.
His injury is a big loss for the 76ers roster.
