As we kick of the second half of the season Philadelphia is in a good spot. For the first time in a while it looks like they are bound for the playoffs and if thing break right down the stretch it is not totally out of the question that they could grab the fourth spot in the Eastern Conference.
The Bulls are in a different situation. They are not quite near the bottom of the East but there is not much from stopping them from finishing the season there.
Philly is not going to catch Toronto or Boston but the first half has been a success. They are winning a lo of the games they are supposed to now.
That is mostly thanks to the duo of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, one an all star and one the likely rookie of the year…if they stay healthy.
When he is on the court Embiid is proving to be the unicorn management was hoping for. They are managing him though it must be tough with his production per minute averages.
Even though Simmons also missed his first season due to injury there are no such restrictions. He had a triple double in his last game before the break and is a threat to do so every night. He is already a tough cover in the league.
Though they tried to surround these two with shooting in the offseason and it mostly worked. Then they added Marco Bellinelli which will help too.
Chicago had not delusions of grandeur coming into the season. They are right where they thought they would be, maybe even a little better considering they could easily be the worst team in the league. The depressing thing is that they do not have a lot of pieces that look like building blocks.
The only one for sure is rookie Lauri Markinnen. Though not the most physically imposing, leading the team in scoring and rebounding is a great place to start. It is obvious that he can shoot and I think he will get better as he works on his body more. Right now he gets pushed around too much.
I suppose the other piece is Zach LaVine. They waited a while for him to get healthy and now he is on the floor. He is a tremendous athlete and I still wonder if he will ever become a really good basketball player. It is tough to miss as much time as he did and come to a new team that is as bad as this one and play well.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
It is hard to make an argument in favour of Chicago here. I guess they have had time to prepare given the All-Star break but so have hte other guys.
Philadelphia is finally winning and they have been a good cover team too. A lot of that damage has been at home though.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers -6.5
Some early bets have come in on the Bulls apparently. I am not sure why, still like Philly at this number but it might be coming down.
