The frontcourt lineup is what’s going to determine this game. Anthony Davis is back in the Lakers lineup. Joel Embiid is out for the 76ers.
Al Horford is a seasoned veteran that is more than capable in filling the void. However, the Laker’s frontcourt is one of the league’s best when they have Lebron James and Anthony Davis.
The 76ers will give the Lakers a game but their frontcourt rotation will eventually wear them down.
The health of Joel Embiid will determine the fate of the 76ers this season. His health may also determine the fate of the 76ers this decade.
Since Embiid’s injury, the 76ers have played admirably well. They have won 5 out of 8 games since his absence.
Most of their opponents though have not been top quality ones. The only notable win was against the Celtics.
All three losses came against teams with winning records. Most recently they were exposed by the Raptors. Their frontcourt struggled against Pascal Siakam and Marc Gasol.
Against the Lakers, they will have their hands full with Davis and James. Even the Lakers bench boast the likes of Dwight Howard and JaVale McGee.
The 76ers will have to find the right rotation at frontcourt to keep the Laker’s frontcourt onslaught at bay. Easier said than done especially without Embiid.
Los Angeles Lakers
Lebron James and the Lakers are back to winning ways. It couldn’t come at a better time leading up to their big game against the Clippers next Monday.
This team hit a speed bump against the Celtics five days ago. They were outplayed in a game Davis only played under 25 minutes.
It certainly highlights Davis’s importance to this team’s championship aspirations. It also highlights James’s age against better opponents in this league.
Basketball is, however, a team sport and the Lakers are a stacked roster all around. When the playoff’s roll around they will need all hands on deck in a loaded Western Conference.
James’s experience is a plus but he does get stretched without Davis in the lineup. That will not be the case against the 76ers in this game.
The Lakers might face some resistance in the backcourt but they could always move James around to point to remedy that. The 76ers defense will not be as formidable without Embiid in the paint.
Look to James and Davis to attack the inside early. If they are successful early the 76ers are in trouble.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction: Lakers
Lakers should continue their winning ways. Without Embiid in the lineup, the 76er’s defense is not the same and limits what they can do offensively.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Lakers -4.5
The Lakers frontcourt overwhelms the 76ers without Embiid.
