Joel Embiid is averaging 33 points and 4.1 assists, while James Harden is averaging 22.1 points and 10.6 assists.

The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t as good as they are at home on the road, and they’re dealing with some injuries to role players. The Minnesota Timberwolves are getting Austin Rivers back, they’re finding ways to finish games, and this is a big home game for them to build their confidence. I picture the crowd showing up in a big way and players to be pumped for this one. The Timberwolves should have some energy in this contest. I’ll grab the free bucket.
