Tuesday, January 29 finds the Philadelphia 76ers facing the. Los Angeles Lakers for the first time this season. Both teams played Sunday with the 76ers losing in Denver 126-110 while the Lakers beat the Suns 116-102.
In each of the past three years, the teams have split their two-game season series. The Lakers hold the all-time record having bested the 76ers 145 of their 279 matches.
The 76ers are stellar at home but continue to have some issues on the road particularly against top seeded squads. Philly is 11-13 on the road but a healthy 12-5 record versus the Western Conference.
In the loss to the Nuggets, six players reached double-digit scoring efforts with J.J. Redick leading the way producing 22 points.
Injuries are becoming an issue particularly as two of the big three had to miss the game in Denver. Joel Embiid (back) is the biggest concern. Meanwhile, Jimmy Butler’s struggles with a sore wrist have caused him to miss the last three games. Both players are expected to suit up Tuesday.
Wilson Chandler also missed the last game due to a tight hamstring and is listed as questionable Tuesday.
In addition to these starters, Jonah Bolden (sore right Achilles) is questionable. Longer term injury reserves include Zhaire Smith (Jones fracture), Markelle Fultz (shoulder) and Justin Patton (foot) who all remain out with no definitive return date.
Los Angeles Lakers
The news in LA had nothing to do with the players on the team but of one who could be joining the team. This because LeBron James BFF, agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports publicly announced Anthony Davis will not sign an extension with the New Orleans Pelicans and has requested a trade.
The timing of this announcement and fact it occurred publicly has many believing it was done this way to add pressure for the Pelicans to work with the Lakers specifically.
Ironically the trio of youngsters being discussed as potential trade bait are all injured with various ailments and expected return dates.
Kyle Kuzma (hip strain) missed the last game and remains questionable for Tuesday. Josh Hart (knee tendinitis) isn’t expected to play Tuesday. Lonzo Ball (Grade 3 left ankle sprain) won’t be back on the court until March.
LeBron James has missed the last 16 games with the team registering a 6-10 record during his absence.
