The Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers meet Tuesday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center.

Kevin Love is averaging 18.8 points and 10.8 rebounds while Jordan Clarkson is averaging 17 points and 2.4 assists. Collin Sexton is the third double-digit scorer and Cedi Osman is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Cleveland Cavaliers are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 78.9 percent from the free throw line. The Cleveland Cavaliers are allowing 37.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.7 rebounds per game. The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost four of their last five road games.
The Philadelphia 76ers look for a victory after splitting their last eight games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 114.9 points on 47.1 percent shooting and allowing 111.7 points on 45.3 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 27.4 points and 13.5 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 20.5 points and 2.6 assists. Jimmy Butler is the third double-digit scorer and JJ Redick is grabbing 2.4 rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.5 percent from the free throw line.

The Cavaliers are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Tuesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Atlantic. The 76ers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Central and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Tuesday games. The Cavaliers are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Philadelphia and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings. The under is 17-5 in 76ers last 22 overall. The over is 5-2 in Cavaliers last 7 overall.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are coming off their best win of the season, waxing the Toronto Raptors by 25 points, which is easily one of the biggest NBA upsets of the year. And while there's no reason for the Cavs to be winning these games, they've won six of their last 12, so they're not exactly the same pushovers they were earlier in the season. The Philadelphia 76ers should win this game, but they've had trouble with consistency and playing with a sense of urgency at times. In their last five games, the 76ers are only winning by an average of one point and are shooting under 44 percent from the field. I'm taking a shot with the points given that the 76ers don't always play to their full potential.
