Wednesday, January 23 finds the San Antonio Spurs facing the Philadelphia 76ers as they meet for the second and final time in the 2018-19 regular season. In their last game on Sunday the Spurs lost to the Clippers. Philadelphia played on Martin Luther King Day on Monday in a big win over the Rockets.
Last season, the 76ers swept the two-game series, but the Spurs have the early edge this year winning game one on December 17. The Spurs hold the all-time record having bested the 76ers in 58 of their 94 matches.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs rode DeMar DeRozan early this season to great effect managing to pull themselves up the West’s ladder to their current sixth seed.
He sat out the game in LA versus the Clippers due to a sore ankle, but you have to wonder if the wear and tear of taking on so much have caught up to him.
Fortunately, the bench and specifically Patty Mills, Marco Belinelli, and Davis Bertans have been keeping San Antonio in games with their great perimeter shooting.
Plus LaMarcus Aldridge has been a force. The problem is the West is so tightly packed the Spurs can’t’ afford any slippage. After moving up behind a 13-3 run they’ve lost four of their last seven games.
Worse the yearly rodeo trip looms with eight games on the road. First, they have two road games, then four at home prior to the eight-game rodeo trip. That could solidify if San Antonio secures a playoff seed and more importantly where they might rank.
Joel Embiid is making a habit of getting into it with opposing star point guards. He had a go with Russell Westbrook Saturday and with James Harden on Monday. The thing is his team came just short of winning both those matches.
Despite not having Jimmy Butler in the lineup versus Houston the 76ers jumped on them early and never took their foot off their throats.
Embiid led the way with a double-double of 32 points and 14 rebounds. Four other players pitched in with double-digit offerings.
Butler (wrist) is questionable for the game and although we see Markelle Fultz sitting with the team there still isn’t a definitive return date for him.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Odda are off as of posting but the 76ers are likely to be favored given their 20-5 home record.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers keep rolling
Embiid doesn’t like dealing with big, aggressive centers so what Gregg Popovich does to counter him will be interesting. If the spread is more than 3 points I’d be inclined to switch to the Spurs.
