Philadelphia 76ers vs New Orleans Pelicans – NBA: This Friday night of NBA, the Philadelphia 76ers will play an interesting game against the New Orleans Pelicans
At the Wells Fargo Center, Sixers’ arena.
The Philadelphia 76ers have a record of 26 wins and 25 losses. I see the 76ers having great possibilities of advancing to the play-offs, since I believe their record is worse than the quality of their roster.
Players like Joel Embiid, Bem Simmons and Dario Saric have been the great highlights of this team, but I believe they can still evolve and make the rest of their teammates step up their level.
The New Orleans Pelicans are doing very well on this edition of the NBA. They are a team with a lot of individual quality, with players like Anthony Davis, Cousins, Rondo, Holiday and now the recently-signed Mirotic.
However, the loss of DeMarcus Cousins, due to an injury, recently, ends up weakening the Pelicans’ team. The responsibility falls towards the star Anthony Davis.
He ends up strengthening the squad when he is in court, but when the team needs to resort to the bench, they drop a lot in terms of quality.
So far, the Pelicans have a record of 28 wins and 25 losses, occupying the 7th place of the Western Conference.
Philadelphia 76ers vs New Orleans Pelicans – Betting Tip and Prediction:
We have a duel here between two teams that are fighting for the Play-offs’ spots. The Pelicans have been struggling with the important absence of Cousins, that was a big addition to the team alongside Davis.
The Pelicans, that were doing very well on the season, are now at risk of missing out on the play-offs.
As for the Sixers, they are in good form and they are staying strong on the fight for a spot in the play-offs.
At home, they have a streak of 5 consecutive wins, and that strength at home, as well as the team’s quality, makes me believe they will come out on top tonight.
