The Lakers are coming off a rare win, in which they snapped a3-game losing streak, and in La La Land tonight they are a 3.5-point betting favorite over the 76ers.
The 76ers have won 2 of their last 3 games and those are only their 2nd and 3rd win of the season. They have the fewest wins in the NBA, but they have been playing well as of late and in Philly earlier this season they got their first win by beating the Lakers.
In their last games the Lakers beat the Boston Celtics 112-104 and the 76ers beat the Sacramento Kings 110-105.
In tonight’s game one of these teams will win 2 straight for the first time in 9 months.
This season the Lakers are 2-9 at home and the 76ers are 1-12 at home.
In their last game the 76ers got their first road win of the season.
Not surprising the 76ers have the league’s worst record since they rank 30th in scoring and 24th in opponents’ points allowed.
Nerlens Noel had a solid game in the win over the Kings going for 20 points and 9 boards and G Ish Smith, who came to Philly in trade with the Pelicans a week ago, has averaged 18 ppg since the trade Noel is averaging 17.3 ppg and 8.7 rpg in his last 3 games.
While t he 76ers rank dead last in the NBA in scoring (92.5 ppg) they have averaged 103 ppg in their last 4 games.
The 76ers had dropped 3 straight to the Lakers before beating them at home earlier this season.
In the win over the Celtics Kobe Bryant went for a double-double in points and boards and Jordan Clarkson had 24 points.
While the Lakers are the favorite in this game they may have trouble facing a 76ers’ offense that has been playing well as of late facing a Lakers team that ranks 2nd to last in the league in opponents’ points per game. The offense has not been much better for L.A. ranking 28th in ppg.
Lakers’ rookie G D’Angelo Russell has scored 34 points in last last 2 home games and he went for 19 in the road win over the Celtics.
The Lakers have lost their last 3 home games.
