I know the Golden State Warriors are struggling right now, but how could you take the Philadelphia 76ers here given what they served up in Los Angeles last night? In case you missed it, the 76ers fell to the Clippers by a lazy 45 points (123-78) and were actually trailing by as much as 56 points at one stage. They trailed by 25 points midway through the first quarter and the score at halftime was 69-30 for crying out loud. Just a pathetic performance for a professional basketball team. Philly has now dropped six straight as they continue their slide down the Eastern Conference standings.
Although injuries have played their part, the Golden State Warriors aren’t in the best form either, having dropped two of their last three and seven of 12 overall. Their starting front court of David Lee and Andrew Bogut has missed the last two games through injury and even though they managed to get past the Chicago Bulls at home last Thursday, they couldn’t do the same against the Phoenix Suns in their last outing on Saturday night, falling 122-109 in Phoenix. With the losses piling up, the Warriors are now just 30-21 overall, which is very surprising seeing as it wasn’t so long ago that they were the hottest team in the entire league, having just ripped off 10 straight victories.
It appears that Bogut is playing tonight, while Lee is still up in the air. Regardless, there is no way I can take Philly here. Yes they will be looking to atone for last night's embarassing loss, but were not talking about the San Antonio Spurs here, were talking about the Philadelphia 76ers...
