Jahlil Okafor is averaging 19.2 points and 7.6 rebounds while Nerlens Noel is averaging 11.6 points and 9.4 rebounds. T.J.

The 76ers are getting 58 points from their starting unit, eight points below league average. The 76ers continue to struggle at both ends of the floor and have now lost 21 straight games.
The Pacers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. NBA Atlantic. The 76ers are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The underdog is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
It seems like the 76ers are getting closer and closer to getting their first victory, as they just competed quite well against the Mavs. The Pacers are also banged up. I'll side with the points here, as tht first Philly win has to come sooner or later.
