Sunday, December 27th finds the Philadelphia 76ers matching up versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Both clubs are playing the second game of a back-to-back set and enter the day 2-0 having won both opening games of the season.
The 76ers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 109 wins in 213 meetings. Last season, the teams played four times with the 76ers claiming three of four matches.
Although the Saturday opponent was the offensively challenged Knicks. the fact Philly held them to 89 points shouldn’t be taken lightly.
This Philadelphia team has the personnel in place to vie for the best defensive team in the association.
Obviously, there are rumors circulating regarding Harden that would likely result in Ben Simmons’ departure and that would change this dynamic.
In the win over New York, five 76ers scored in double figures with Joel Embiid leading the way behind a double-double of 27 points and 10 rebounds.
Tobias Harris and Seth Curry each chipped in with 17 points while Ben Simmons offered 15 points and Shake Milton added 10.
The victory was the 945th of Doc Rivers’ career moving him into tenth all-time for victories among his coaching peers.
While the final score indicates a blow-out it’s not indicative of the full picture since the Knicks held tough until the third quarter when the 76ers lowered the defensive hammer.
By the end of the frame. Philly outscored the Knicks 26-14 and had built a 13-point lead.
The Andre Drummond bowl wasn’t a pretty game by any stretch of the imagination as two likely lottery teams battled to force overtime.
Drummond’s Cavs came out on top but it required a furious closing effort in the fourth quarter and coming back from a nine-point deficit in the extra frame.
With the victory, the Cavaliers remain unbeaten after winning their season opener over the Hornets. Four Cavaliers scored over 20 points with Collin Sexton leading the way behind a 32 point effort.
His backcourt mate Darius Garland offered the more complete game with a double-double of 21 points and 12 assists along with five rebounds, two steals, and a block.
Facing his former team Drummond delivered his own double-double of 23 points and 16 rebounds but also filled up the stat sheet with five assists, four steals, and three blocks.
Cedi Osman (22), Kevin Love (15), and JaVale McGee (11) were the other double-figure scorers.
Matthew Dellevedova (concussion) missed the last two games and remains questionable for Sunday Likewise, Kevin Porter Jr. hasn’t played due to personal reasons and is also questionable for this match.
Dylan Windler (hand) is out indefinitely.

J.B. Bickerstaff has the Cavs playing well but beating the Hornets and Pistons lottery teams is a far cry from taking down the 76ers.
Meanwhile, the challenge for the 76ers is to start the season well on the road.
