A much-anticipated inter-conference showdown between the Philadelphia 76ers (39-18) and Phoenix Suns (41-16) will headline NBA action Wednesday night. Both are at the tops of their respective conferences and will threats come playoff time.
Philadelphia played Monday night at home and were defeated by Golden State 107-96. Phoenix played Monday as well and took down Milwaukee on their home court in OT 128-127.
Philadelphia hasn’t had the season they had hoped for and no longer appear to be the top dog in the Eastern Conference. They sit in the 3rd spot meanwhile Phoenix sits in 2nd place in not only the Western Conference but the whole league.
The 76ers still sit atop the Eastern Conference but their lead has dwindled to only a game after losing Monday night. This 4 game stretch will be a serious test for the team and whether they are serious contenders as they play at home against the Warriors and Suns before traveling to the Bucks for back to back contests.
Philadelphia had no answer for the Steph Curry show as he continued his scorching hot shooting run, finishing with 49 points and knocking down 10 3-pointers in the game. The game was tied at halftime but the Warriors were able to pull away for a 107-96 victory.
Joel Embiid did his best, finishing with 28 points, 13 rebounds, and 8 assists for the near triple-double. Ben Simmons (illness) and Tobias Harris (knee) both missed the game and their health will play a large factor for this team’s chances in the upcoming week.
We’re about to learn a lot about the Suns over the course of their next seven games. All of the opponents coming up, including the 76ers, are playoff contenders with at least five of the games being on the road. The Suns are still clinging to second place in the Western Conference standings and are now only 1.5 games back.
Phoenix won an OT thriller on Monday in Milwaukee 128-127. In both meetings this year the Suns were able to win by 1 point over the Bucks which is a good sign for the team as playoff time is around the corner. 4 players scored 20+ points for Phoenix as Devin Booker (24/7/7) led the way followed by Chris Paul (22/13/7) and Deandre Ayton (20/13). Mikal Bridges also added 21 points.
Phoenix is led by young franchise face Devin Booker, who averages a team high 25.5 points per game. Veteran point guard Chris Paul has changed this whole teams trajectory thanks to his leadership and team best averages of 8.7 assists and 1.5 steals along with 2nd in scoring with 15.6 points. Former #1 pick Deandre Ayton has had a quietly good season, averaging 15.1 points and team bests with 10.8 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction:
Phoenix is the hottest teams in the league, winning 15 of their last 17 games. This team has the 2nd best record in basketball and find ways to win close games, Monday’s 128-127 OT win over Milwaukee proves that.
Philadelphia has had a great season but they are dealing with some injuries to their top players Simmons and Harris which put there availability for this contest in question. The 76ers got exposed by Curry on Monday and could not slow down his 3pt shooting which was there downfall.
Booker and Paul are a perfectly paired duo in their first year together and pick on teams that cannot guard the backcourt well. I’m taking the Suns.
