Wednesday, January 27th the Philadelphia 76ers will play host to the Los Angeles Lakers in their first meeting of the 2020-21 season.
The teams each sit atop their conferences and represent what could be a preview of the NBA Finals later this summer.
Last season, the squads played twice each taking one match. The Lakers hold the all-time record between the squads with 146 victories in the team’s 283 meetings.
Los Angeles Lakers
The Cavaliers who were buoyed by beating the Big 3 Brooklyn Nets in consecutive games got a taste of championship mettle in their loss to the Lakers on Monday. It represented the 10th road win for LA who are unbeaten on the road.
Of the teams who feast at home even without fans, the 76ers offer up a tough test for the Lakers to maintain that unbeaten streak.

Returning home to Cleveland always seems to elicit some of LeBron James’ best games and he delivered in this outing posting a line of 46 points (scoring 21 in the fourth quarter), eight rebounds, six assists, two steals, and two blocks.
Anthony Davis posted a double-double of 17 points and 10 rebounds along with three steals and blocks each.
Montrezl Harrell (15), Dennis Schroder (10), and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Kostas Antetokounmpo is dealing with knee tendinitis while Jared Dudley is bothered by a sore calf. Both are out indefinitely.
Although there are fans thirsting to witness Joel Embiid face-off versus Anthony Davis and LeBron James that may not come to pass as the 76ers big man is dealing with back spasms.
The major note of the 76ers season is when Embiid doesn’t play the team has no offensive chemistry on the floor that point got punctuated in their 119-104 loss to the Pistons.
Doc Rivers stated he expected Embiid to play in this match so we’ll keep our fingers crossed for what could be a telling precursor to the summer playoffs.
In the loss to the Pistons, Ben Simmons got in early foul trouble finishing with a mere 11 points
Tobias Harris led the offense with 25 points while a trio of reserves pitched in. Specifically, Tyrese Maxey (17), Tony Bradley (12), and Shake Milton (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Embiid as noted is listed as questionable to play although it would make sense the 76ers would rest him versus the Pistons to have him ready for the Lakers match.
Mike Scott (knee) is out until February and Vincent Poirier remains out indefinitely dealing with the league’s health and safety protocols.
NBA Betting Trends:
- Under is 11-2 in LAL last 13 road games.

Free Los Angeles Lakers vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Like all NBA fans this match holds great intrigue for me as they represent two of the best defenses but Embiid has to play if the 76ers want a shot at sending an early message to the reigning champs.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers +2.5
The line is pretty slim which seems to hint the big man will suit up and if he does I like the 76ers to end the Lakers road win streak. If however, Embiid is out I’d suggest switching to the Lakers to easily cover the spread.
