Philly is on the cover of SI this week and for good reason. They are all in this season and one of the better teams in the East. This is a fun matchup.
Portland is still an underrated team in my books and their strengths just might give Philly some trouble. It will be interesting to see.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland opened up the final portion of the schedule with a nice win on the road at Brooklyn. Now Philly is next.
They won big even though All-Star Damian Lillard was not much of a factor – just 13 points. Still their backcourt it was drives this group.
In Lillard and CJ McCollum the Blazers have a couple of guards that might be tough covers for a Philly team that has tons of size in its regular lineup. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.
Up front Jusuf Nurkic was the leading scorer in the win over the Nets with 27 – that is rare. He is going to get a break in not having to guard Joel Embiid.
Recent pickup Enes Kanter has 18 and 9 in his debut. I think he is going to prove to be a really good acquisition for them. He is just effective.
Philly has a lot of buzz right now but it is a bit of a downer that they are given Embiid some more time off to rest his knees. They just souped up the engine and now they are not even taking the car for a spin.
That makes the fact that they acquired Boban Marjanovic from L.A. even more of a thing. In his last game he contributed 19 and 12 in 27 minutes proving how effective he can be.
Still it will not be his responsibility to lead the team the way Embiid did. That still falls to Ben Simmons. There is no doubting his talent but his outside shooting, or lack thereof, is even more of a thing without Embiid in the lineup.

Free Portland Trail Blazers vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
No Embiid changes a lot for this team. I like Portland to continue their good form on the road in this one.
Hopefully we get a very favourable number with the 76ers still at -4 or -5…I like the upset but want the cushion.
