Joel Embiid put up a big game in Utah to get Philadelphia’s four-game West Coast road trip started well. But he felt knee discomfort after the game and didn’t play in Portland, where Philadelphia completely failed to compete on any level and got blown out by the Trail Blazers.
So the trip is halfway over but Philly is in danger of struggling through the rest of it if Embiid can’t return before the 76ers return home to host Dallas on Saturday. There are no games in-between that one and this one against Phoenix.
Wednesday night will conclude the trip and be Philly’s second game in two nights, after it plays the Clippers on Tuesday. It would surprise me if Embiid plays in both the back-to-backs so perhaps he sits against LA and plays this game. It would be the easiest way to play for a .500 road trip, which the Sixers would take at this point.
JJ Redick averages 2.8 three-point attempts per game; next on the current roster is Mike Muscala with 1.6. The Sixers’ gave up their second and third-best outside shooters when they traded away Robert Covington and Dario Saric.
So far, it hasn’t really hurt the Sixers but I’m skeptical they are much better than they were before acquiring Jimmy Butler. And I didn’t think they were good enough to win the East then. There hopes lie in Butler getting it done as a leader. That’s his most valuable contribution to this team.
I wrote up the Phoenix game on Monday and I hope you followed along because the Suns were trounced by the Warriors, who scored 132 on the Suns’ excuse for a defense.
Steph Curry had thirty-four and Kevin Durant had twenty-five; everybody else chipped in a few baskets here and there. Phoenix got twenty-five from Ayton, twenty-four from TJ Warren and twenty from Booker. It’s more about those guys getting their numbers than anything else.
Phoenix lost a close game in Philly back on Nov. 19. Devin Booker went off and Ayton had seventeen points on efficient shooting, though he finished a -4.
Butler probably won’t let Booker get off again, even if the game is in Phoenix. I still like the Sixers but I’m not usually ever confident enough in them to lay points.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction: under.
The Embiid news is everything. If he’s out, I’m definitely thinking under because defense will be Philly’s best chance to get the ugly win.
