76ers vs Nuggets Prediction & Pick
Yes, the 76ers have shut down most of their important players at this point as Isaiah Joe and Paul Reed didn't suit up on Wednesday. However, Philadelphia's defense shined by allowing Miami to only shoot 27.4% from the floor and tallying an impressive 12 blocks. The 76ers showed some fight.
On the other side, Denver's rookies continue to ball out. The duo of Peyton Watson (12.0 points, 6.3 rebounds) and Christian Braun (12.0 points, 6.0 rebounds) makes the Nuggets a dangerous Summer League team. The emergence of undrafted guard Collin Gillespie (13.3 points, 4.7 assists) helps as well.
I'll back a Nuggets team full of potential to grab an upset win on Friday (+122).
