Trailblazers vs Sixers Preview, Is Philly the Biggest Threat to the Nets?


Dame Dolla and the hobbled Portland Trailblazers come into Philly to play the number one seed Sixers Thursday night. Lillard has been carrying this team as far as he can this season with McCollum, Nurkic and DJJ all out. He has been averaging almost 30 points a game and is questionable for tonights game with an abdominal strain. If he doesn't play I expect a blow out for for one of the MVP front runners, Embiid, and his team. Ever since they acquired Seth Curry this team has looked poised to make a deep playoff run. He has created spacing that they did not have last season and this team has been able to stay healthy so far. If they continue playing like this they pose the biggest threat to the stacked Brooklyn team in the East. Embiid has been filling up the stat sheet with 28.6 points 11 rebounds 3 assists 1 block and 1 steal per game. Tobias Harris has been balling as well scoring 20 a game which really helps this squad who does not need to really on Ben Simmons to score as much. Simmons has been doing his thing distributing the ball to the shooters and opening up the floor for everyone. The Sixers are -8.5 which seems like free money to me especially if Lillard sits.
