Friday, November 8, finds interconference foes the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets tipping off at 9:00 p.m. at the Pepsi Center. Each club sports an identical 5-2 record entering the match and both have championship visions. This is yet another exciting big man matchup as Joel Embiid lines up versus Nikola Jokic.
Last season, the squads played twice and split the series. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Nuggets in 50 of their 88.
Joel Embiid returned to the lineup after serving his two-game suspension for the wrestling match versus Karl-Anthony Towns last week. He immediately got to work.
Embiid was unstoppable scoring 27 points from various points on the court and registered a double-double adding 16 rebounds.
Unfortunately, his efforts weren’t enough to capture the victory as the 76ers lost a close match by two points to the Jazz.
With Ben Simmons injury, Josh Richardson stepped up to fill in and posted his best game as a Sixer with 24 points, four rebounds and four assists. Tobias Harris (16) and Raul Neto (11) also served up double-digit efforts.
Ben Simmons will miss this game after departing the previous match versus the Jazz when he suffered a minor AC joint sprain in his right shoulder. He is expected to miss the next three games including his match, Sunday against the Hornets and Tuesday versus the Cavaliers.
Shake Milton remains out until mid-November after sustaining a mild sprain and a contusion to his left knee.
Head Coach Mike Malone wasn’t happy with the back-to-back losses to the Mavericks and Pelicans last week and called out his team for it asking for actions instead of talk.
His young charges responded with back-to-back wins over the Magic and Heat with and a much improved defensive effort where they held both opponents under 90 points.
In the impressive victory over a solid Heat club, Jamal Murray led the way with 21 points, four assists, and five rebounds. Will Barton served up a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Overall it was a complete team win with Jerami Grant (15), Monte Morris (11), Paul Millsap (10) and Mason Plumlee (10) each adding double-digit contributions.
Nikola Jokic wasn’t a major offensive factor although he did offer nine points, (23) five assists, and five rebounds.
Gary Harris (ankle) and Paul Millsap (forehead laceration) both sustained injuries in the last game but are expected to return to the lineup for this match. Bol Bol (navicular bone fracture in his left foot) remains out indefinitely.
NBA Betting Trends:

- Over Under is 4-5-1 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Denver Nuggets NBA Prediction:
The matchup between Embiid and Jokic will be entertaining but Jamal Murray needs to capitalize on the absence of Ben Simmons. Last season the Nuggets were virtually unbeatable at home but Embiid is determined to get to the NBA Finals this season and will do his best to power his team to the victory.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nuggets ATS
If the Nuggets are smart they’ll force the Sixers to shoot from the field and perimeter where they shoot a lowly 33.3 percent and take advantage of the absence of a driving Simmons.
