The Golden State Warriors come into this game where there’s clearly a mismatch, and that’s the least to say. What’s ironic is that even though they’re facing the worst team in the league, they had quite a tough time beating them the last 2 games. This will be the 4th time they meet this season and 2nd time in Oakland. The first game of the year in Oakland saw typical Golden State dominance where they put up 126 pts against 86 from the 76ers. The Warriors are ranked 1st in scoring and the Sixers are ranked 30th. The Warriors are now an 8-2 stretch away from getting the best team in NBA history distinction and this game is statistically in the books where we may see Steve Kerr resting some of his starters in the 4th.
The Sixers are now on an 8 game losing streak but have been playing much better throughout the past games than during the year. The last 2 defeats were heartbreaking as they lost by a combined four points to the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets. On top of that, both losses were on the road and what’s discouraging is that they have only 3 road wins all season. This season is clearly a nightmare scenario and when they have games like this one, with an hungry for winning Golden State team that has less losses that they have wins, it will be tough for them to even stay in the contest.
