The Warriors are back home after having a successful road trip during which they won all their five games. They are facing the Philadelphia 76ers tonight at the Oracle Arena and will be looking to grab their 12th straight win.
The 76ers are coming off a victory against the Los Angeles Lakers and will be looking to upset the Warriors tonight.
Let’s talk about the Warriors first:
The Warriors are back to their old self, and with the addition of Demarcus Cousins, they have become even better. They have improved to 36-14 for the season and stand on the top place of the Western Conference standings.
They wrecked the Indiana Pacers in their last game with a margin of 32 points. Four of their stars and the starters were in double figures- Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, DeMarcus Cousins and Klay Thompson.
Curry finished with 26 points, scoring six three-pointers out of the eight attempted. He will be itching to back again tonight to keep up his shooting form. Cousins followed him on the scoring sheet with 22 points and six rebounds.
Warriors will be looking to dominate against the high-quality sixers side tonight.
Coming to the 76ers now:
The 76ers are 33-18 for the season and are sitting comfortably at the 3rd place in the East. They have high-quality players at every position on the court and are capable of defeating this Warriors team tonight.
They beat the LA Lakers in the last game, where Joel Embiid went off for 28 points and 11 rebounds. He will have a great contest tonight from the lights of players like Cousins.
Ben Simmons is averaging nearly a triple-double and scored 19 points and eight rebounds against the Lakers. He will have a tough task tonight to not only score and assists but also stop Curry from shooting threes.
The 76ers will be looking to end the Warriors’ 11-games winning streak.
Warriors have been unbeatable, and nothing is going to change tonight. They will have the upper hand against the 76ers tonight.
