On Thursday, February 11 the Philadelphia 76ers and Portland meet for the second time this season. In the initial match, the Blazers were missing several starters but won 121-105 in Philadelphia.
The 76ers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 59wins in 116 meetings. Last season, the teams played twice each winning one contest.
The top team in the East is on a terror having won 11 of their last 14 games. Even their losses have come seemingly more because the 76ers took their opponent for granted.
Those three losses were versus the Grizzlies (by two points), the Pistons and the Blazers who were missing Damian Lillard, and several core players.
In their most recent victory over the Kings, the 76ers took down arguably the hottest team in the association via a fairly comfortable 119-111 differential.
Philly outrebounded the Kings by a margin of 20 boards (59-39) and clamped down on the Kings defensively every time the youngsters threatened to get back in the match.
Joel Embiid continued his MVP campaign effort leading his squad with a double-double of 25 points and 17 rebounds plus six assists, two steals, and two blocks.
Tobias Harris also registered a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds. Seth Curry recorded 22 points while Ben Simmons had a solid all-around effort of 14 points, seven rebounds, and nine assists.
Furkan Korkmaz (13) and Shake Milton (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Mike Scott (knee) is the only Philly player on the injured list.
Portland Trail Blazers
Aside from the upset win over the 76ers the Blazers have stayed afloat through the last 10 games sporting a .500 record with victories over lower seeds like the Knicks, Bulls, Wizards and Magic.
The most recent victory coming against the Orlando Magic.
Damian Lillard led his squad with 36 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and connected on five of his ten 3-pointers. Carmelo Anthony scored 23 in his reserve role.
Gary Trent Jr. (15) and Anfernee Simons (11) were the other double-figure scorers. Derrick Jones Jr. and Enes Kanter were critical on the boards each collecting 10 rebounds.
CJ McCollum has missed the last 10 games and should be nearing a return to action as he was expected to be out a month and his last game was January 16th.
Nassir Little (knee) is day-to-day. Jusuf Nurkic (wrist) out until March. Zach Collins (medial malleolus stress fracture to his ankle) remains out with no timetable for return.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Portland Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:
Hard to imagine the 76ers aren’t looking at this as a revenge game after they took the Blazers for granted in that February 4th match.
While Embiid scored 37 in that first outing he didn’t get a ton of support nor did the 76ers play with their typical defensive effort losing the rebounding battle 53-37. Expect that to change in this outing.
