The Philadelphia 76ers need a win after losing 16 straight games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 92 points on 42.8 percent shooting and allowing 103.7 points on 46.1 percent shooting. Jahlil Okafor is averaging 19.7 points and 5.5 rebounds while Nik Stauskas is averaging 14.6 points and 2.8 assists. T.J. McConnell is dishing 7.5 assists and Nerlens Noel is grabbing 9.8 rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers have not won a game since March 25th and it may remain that way as long as they average more than 17 turnovers per game. The only good news for the 76ers is that 10 of their last 11 wins have come at home. Jerami Grant is questionable with an eye injury.
The Bulls are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Monday games. The 76ers are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Central. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
The 76ers have shown signs of at least competing, as they took the Cavs down the wire recently and have actually lost their last four games by single digits. Don't love the game, but I'll take a shot with the points.
