On Thursday, April 1st the Cleveland Cavaliers play host to the Philadelphia 76ers in their third and final meeting this season. In the first match on December 27th, the 76ers won 118-94 and in the second meeting on February 27th Philly won 112-109 in overtime
Last season, the squads played four times with the 76ers winning three of four contests. Philly holds the all-time record having won 109 matches of the 215 played.
This marks the last match of a six-game road trip. To this point, their record is 3-2 so at worst Philly will garner a split but would prefer to finish 4-2.
While the 76ers retain the top seed in the East their perch is more precarious as the Nets continue to close the gap sitting just a half-game back.
In their most recent match, the 76ers were bested by the revamped Nuggets who doubled them up in the first frame 44-22 and held on despite a late surge by Philly.
Although five 76ers scored in double-figures the highest point-getter was Tyrese Maxey with 13 points scored entirely in the fourth quarter.
Tobias Harris (12), Ben Simmons (11), Shake Milton (10), and Ben Simmons (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Dwight Howard continued his recent habit of ticking off the refs collecting a Flagrant-1 foul although he avoided being ejected for the third consecutive game.
Without Joel Embiid the Sixers are 8-8 this season although they’ve performed better (6-3) during this injury stint. Speaking of the big man, Doc Rivers updated Embiid is close to returning as he’s progressed his conditioning to include on-court activities.
Sitting in the 13th seed the Cavaliers aren’t going to be vying for a title run this season. However, they aren’t that far off the pace for the play-in tournament sitting 2.5 games behind the 10th place Bulls.
While the Cavaliers have collected some quality wins their biggest issue is producing enough offense over a full 48-minutes. That wasn’t the case in their recent loss as the Jazz lambasted them 114-75.
Only two Cavaliers scored in double figures with Collin Sexton leading the way posting 20 points, three rebounds, two assists, and two steals. Darius Garland also chipped in 18 points along with five rebounds, and five assists.
Isaiah Hartenstein only scored five points but contributed 14 rebounds and seven assists. The Jazz reserves outscored the Cavs 51 to 20. In terms of key categories, the Jazz outrebounded the Cavs 55 to 40 and bested Cleveland 16 to 5 on the fast break.
Larry Nance Jr. missed the match with an illness, Jarrett Allen is in the concussion protocol program. Kevin Love (calf) missed his ninth consecutive game and has appeared in only four games this season.
Matthew Dellavedova (appendectomy) has yet to play this year. All are listed as day-to-day.
