The Philadelphia 76ers still look for their first victory after a brutal 0-18 start to the year. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 90.8 points on 41.4 percent shooting and allowing 102.8 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Jahlil Okafor is averaging 17.5 points and 8.2 rebounds while Robert Covington is averaging 13.1 points and 1.8 assists. Jerami Grant is grabbing five rebounds and Isaiah Canaan is dishing 1.8 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 31.8 percent from beyond the arc and 71.4 percent from the free throw line. The 76ers have allowed 100 or more points in 11 of their 18 games this season. The Philadelphia 76ers have lost 12 straight home games. Nerlens Noel is questionable with a knee injury.
The Lakers are 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 vs. Eastern Conference and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The 76ers are 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Lakers are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Philadelphia.
Two of the worst teams in the league, which means this is a real shot for 76ers to end their losing streak. However, the Lakers do have more talent than the 76ers, take better care of the basketball and are at least trying to win games. Sometimes you wonder if the 76ers are doing this on purpose.
I'll take the road team.
