29 January 2023, Sunday
On Saturday, some of the top teams in both conferences will go head-to-head when the Philadelphia 76ers, who have a current winning streak of six games and are now second in the East, host the Denver Nuggets, who have won 20 of their last 24 and currently top the West. Joel Embiid, however, could be a doubt for the Sixers with a foot injury. Denver, meanwhile, have been beset by injury issues and have dropped two of their last three games.

The tip-off time for this prominent NBA conflict is 3 p.m. ET at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, where the Sixers have dropped two of their last four matches. The most recent Sixers vs. Nuggets lines from Caesars Sportsbook have Philadelphia as a 3.5-point favorite with the over/under set at 231.5.

Denver has been dealing with some setbacks lately, as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (wrist), Bruce Brown (knee), Michael Porter Jr. (personal) and Nikola Jokic (hamstring) along with Jamal Murray (hip) are all included on the NBA injury report.

The back-to-back reigning NBA MVP is averaging 25.1 points, 11.0 rebounds and 9.9 assists per game, while shooting an impressive 62.9% from the floor.

Additionally, the team forces 15.4 turnovers per game, while allowing only 24.1 assists and 48.3 painted points per game (both of which rank them among the top ten of the League).

On offense, the 76ers have been highly productive, posting an efficiency rating of 115.4 points per 100 possessions, good enough for the top five in the league.
