Clearly, not having Kawhi Leonard is an issue but Paul George can take over offensively. The bigger issue is not having Serge Ibaka who would be used to slow 76ers big man Joel Embiid.
Additionally, Patrick Beverley will be out for up to a month with a hand injury.
Paul George was rested in the second games of back-to-back sets but in the other five matches during the win streak, he’s been on fire. PG 13 has averaged 28.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.5 assists, and 1.3 steals.
Most impressive was his shooting efficiency as he connected from the field with a 50.9 percentage and 53.7 percent from the perimeter.
In their last victory versus the Pistons, the Clippers won without either superstar as Reggie Jackson got his revenge on Detroit leading his team with 29 points.
Ivica Zubac registered a double-double of 18 points and 13 rebounds while Luke Kennard scored 17 as the only other double-figure contributor.
Leonard (foot) is questionable for Friday. Ibaka (back) is out for the road trip. Beverley (hand) will be out until early May.
The 76ers have won 10 of their last 14 games and on a current three-game winning streak. Week 17 brought two major victories over the Mavericks and Nets.
The latter allowed the 76ers to reclaim the top spot in the Eastern Conference. A crucial goal for the 76ers, Nets, and Bucks so they can avoid having to play two of those teams t
In the victory versus the Nets, Joel Embiid reemerged as the leader to win Most Valuable Player turning DeAndre Jordan in circles. He delivered a double-double of 39 points and 13 rebounds with two assists, and two steals.
Ben Simmons came one assist shy of a double-double with 17 points and nine assists.
Tobias Harris offered 26 points while Shake Milton chipped in with 15 as the other double-figure contributors.
Dwight Howard (knee) missed Wednesday’s match and is questionable for Friday. George Hill who underwent thumb surgery prior to being traded has been out since January 24th has yet to make his 76ers debut.
