Sunday, November 17 finds the Philadelphia 76ers and Cleveland Cavaliers tipping off for the second time this season.
The squads played three times last season with the 76ers winning two of three as well as the initial meeting this season. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Cavaliers in 107 of their 210 matches.
Although the 76ers uncharacteristically had a strong performance from the perimeter it wasn’t enough to defeat the OKC Thunder.
OKC won most of the other key categories and by doing so pushed Philly into overtime where the Thunder took over outscoring them 20-12 for the upset 127-119 victory.
Ultimately what cost the 76ers the game was the differential in free throws as Philly kept fouling sending the Thunder to the line 41 times whereas Philly had almost half the attempts (22).
Joel Embiid led the way with 31 points and 12 rebounds for his fifth double-double in seven games played. Ben Simmons also produced a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds prior to fouling out.
Tobias Harris broke through from the perimeter hitting three of four 3-pointers. Leading up the match Harris was in an 0 for 18 perimeter slump. Josh Richardson scored a season-high 28 points, Harris registered 21 points and Al Horford pitched in with 12 points.
Shake Milton has a left knee bone bruise which kept him out of the last game and he is listed as questionable for this match.
In their last game the Miami Heat jumped out to a 68-44 first-half lead and the Cavaliers couldn’t claw their way back.
Tristan Thompson has been killing it this season with eight double-doubles in his previous 10 games but he failed to reach the mark in his worst outing this season (2 points/3 rebounds).
Kevin Love, however, did manage to record his seventh double-double and led the team with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
Collin Sexton (15), Larry Nance Jr. (14), Cedi Osman (12), Darius Garland (11) and Jordan Clarkson (10) were the other double-digit contributors.
Nance hurt his thumb making him questionable for the match. A trio of Cavaliers remains out until late November including John Henson (hamstring), Ante Zizic (foot) and Dylan Windler (shin).
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Teams are 5-5 ATS in their last 10

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction:
The 76ers were the last team to lose a game getting out to a 5 and 0 start to the season. Since then they’ve lost five of their next seven games.
The key to the match might be the charity stripe as the 76ers commit the second most personal fouls in the NBA while the Cavaliers commit the fewest. Another key is turnovers as again the 76ers turn the ball over the second most (17.8) while the Cavs rank sixth (14.5).
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers end losing streak
