This matchup features two Eastern Conference foes. One being the Orlando Magic out of the – division and the other being the Philadelphia 76ers out of the – division. The game time is set for 7:30 PM Eastern Time and will be played in Philadelphia.
Last season these teams played each other three times. The 76ers swept the season series three games to none.
The Magic played and won their first game of the season 104-101 over the Miami Heat this past Wednesday. They now make their first road trip of the season and will face the 76ers.
The Magic played a solid game overall against the Heat. As mentioned they picked up the win behind a balanced scoring night from the team as a whole. A total of six players scored double digits, including four of the five starters.
Aaron Gordon was the MVP in this game by far. He led the team in scoring with 26 points and also led the team in rebounds with 16. He shot 9 of 18 from the field and 4 of 5 from behind the three point line. Rookie, Mohamed Bamba, had a very solid NBA debut against the Heat. He came off the bench to score 13 points and also grabbed 7 rebounds. He shot 6 of 8 from the field as well. If Bamba can continue to contribute these type of numbers, his minutes should increase very soon.
Defensively the Magic did a good job to hold the Heat to under 40% shooting from the field. The key for the Magic is to slow down Joel Embiid in the post because if he gets hot, he cannot be stopped.
After an opening night loss in Boston, the 76ers came back home and crushed the Bulls 127-108.
Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid were clearly the standout performers in this Wednesday night showdown. Embiid was the leading scorer for the 76ers with 30 points and 12 rebounds. Simmons contributed a triple-double, earning 13 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. The Sixers looked unstoppable and really showed their true potential against Chicago.
The Sixers held the Bulls to 43.6% shooting and dominated the boards, out-rebounding them by 16. Expect a similar aggressiveness on the defensive side and expect the Sixers to put a lot of pressure on the Magic big men, especially the inexperienced Mo Bamba.
