Saturday, February 27th the Cleveland Cavaliers will meet the Philadelphia 76ers for the second time this season. Cleveland won the opening match 118-94 on December 27th.
Last season, the squads played four times with the 76ers taking three of the four contests. The 76ers hold the slim edge in all-time victories with 109 wins in the team’s 214 meetings.
Following ten consecutive losses, the Cavaliers rediscovered their winning ways via consecutive victories versus the Hawks and Rockets.
Moving that mini win streak to three in a row will be an uphill battle. First of all, the Cavaliers already upset the 76ers at season start so Philly won’t underestimate them again.
Moreover, Philly is 14-2 at Wells Fargo Center with only the Nuggets and Blazers netting victories there.
In the win versus Houston, Jarrett Allen posted a monster 26 point, 18 rebound double-double along with two assists and four blocks.
All five starters (plus Dylan Windler) reached double-figure scoring. Collin Sexton continued his hot streak with 23 points while Darius Garland also produced a double-double of 11 points and 10 assists.
Taurean Prince (ankle) returned after missing four games but played only 8:37 versus the Rockets. Andre Drummond is a healthy scratch as the Cavs seek a trade partner.
Larry Nance will miss up to six weeks after suffering a fractured hand. Kevin Love (calf) is ramping up his workouts but has yet to play this season. Likewise, Matthew Dellavedova (concussion) remains out with no timetable for return.
Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons will both play in the All-Star game and showed why they earned the recognition to participate as they led the 76ers to their 22nd victory courtesy of the Dallas Mavericks.
Embiid registered 23 points, nine rebounds, four assists, two steals, and a block while Simmons added 15 points, three rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and a block.
Post-game Simmons enthused about his performance claiming to be the best defensive player in the NBA. Seth Curry (15), Dwight Howard (14), and Shake Milton (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
As the 76ers continue to roll at home they’ve done so without fans in attendance but that could change soon with a limited number allowed although no definitive date has been set.
Tobias Harris scored six points but left after 22 minutes with a bruised knee making him questionable for Saturday.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Jarrett Allen and the bigs on Cleveland have their work cut out trying to limit Joel Embiid while not fouling. In his last three games, Embiid has shot a cumulative 14 of 53 for a brutal 26.4 percent.
However, he’s still racking up the points because he getting to the line averaging 12.6 free throws in the same trio of games.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
The battle on the boards will be intense with the Cavs ranking second on the offensive glass but a miserable 30th on the defensive end whereas the Sixers rank sixth in total rebounds (13th offensive/10th defensive).
Philly will welcome the opportunity to play the 30th ranked offense versus their fifth-ranked defense. The question isn’t if the 76ers will win — but by how much and whether Doc will use this opportunity to sit his stars early once they get a comfortable lead which could affect the over/under.
