Philadelphia will play in Memphis on Saturday night before traveling to OKC to play the Thunder on Sunday.
So the 76ers will have to more than likely earn a victory in this spot because the Thunder is young and full of energy.
Then there’s Joel Embiid, who won’t play in either one of the back-to-back games in order to rest his ailing knee.
The 76ers will be underdogs without their best player but they do have an opportunity to simply play smaller with more shooters in the lineup and plan on out-shooting the Thunder.
Seth Curry probably will not be one of those shooters. He’s been out since twisting an ankle and then testing positive.
Furkan Korkmaz will likely remain out, too, though Philly would love to have him back for this spot.
Expect a lot of Danny Green, Shake Milton, and even Isaiah Joe. Plus, an ever green light for Tobias Harris, who is shooting better than 45 percent from three on the season.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Thunder will have Saturday off at home after defeating the Bulls by two points on Friday.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way with 33 points. Lu Dort knocked down four three-pointers on his way to 21 points. Three bench players finished in double-figures, including the rookie Theo Maledon.
Isaiah Roby started in the place of Al Horford, who missed his second game in a row due to a personal issue. It is not known whether or not Horford will be back in time to play his old team.
Six guys on the Thunder average in double-digits with Mike Muscala and Roby right on the cusp of getting there, too.
Roby, who went in the second round out of Nebraska in 2019, will get playing time even if Horford returns but the Thunder may be better off with his shooting in the lineup. He’s launching at a 40 percent clip from distance.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction: OKC.
I like the Thunder on its home court and against an opponent down its best player and weary from travel on the second night of a back-to-back.
