76ers vs Warriors Prediction & Pick
This is a game to keep an eye out for injury updates as Joel Embiid and James Harden are both listed as questionable for Philadelphia (injury). The two All-Stars lead the 76ers in scoring, rebounding and assists. All eyes would turn to third-year pro Tyrese Maxey if Embiid and/or Harden can't give it a go.
That bodes well for Golden State's chances of earning a 30th win at the Chase Center this year. The Warriors have been unstoppable on the offensive end of the court in front of their home fans, averaging 119.6 points per game (No. 6 in NBA) on a 38.8% three-point percentage (No. 4 in NBA).
Golden State has also won 14 of its last 19 games against Philadelphia, so back the Warriors here.
Final Score Prediction: 76ers: 114 | Warriors: 122
76ers vs Warriors Best Bet
The 76ers rely on length and intensity when defending the perimeter, which has worked out since they allow an opponent three-point percentage of just 34.4% (No. 3 in NBA). Philadelphia also allows only 11.3 made three-pointers per game (No. 3 in NBA), so look for Klay Thompson to struggle here.
Thompson has drained fewer than 4 three-pointers in four of his last five games overall as well as in six of his last 10 games against the 76ers. He also averages only 18.4 points per game against Philly in his career, which makes betting on his points under (line set at 21.5) worth a look on Friday night, too.
Bet: Klay Thompson Under 3.5 Made Threes (-118)
