Milwaukee Bucks – Philadelphia 76ers Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 115.1 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 112.2 points on 45.4 percent shooting. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 35.9 percent from beyond the arc and 77.8 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers have won each of their last six home games. Jimmy Butler is the third double-digit scorer and JJ Redick is grabbing 2.4 rebounds. The Philadelphia 76ers could use a win after losing four of their last six games. Joel Embiid is averaging 27.5 points and 13.7 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 19 points and 2.9 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 34 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.7 rebounds per game.

The Sixers own a 49-28 record so far this season but are being very cautious about their roster going into this late period in the season. They are looking forward to a deep playoff run but will need all hands on deck to make it happen. It looks as if the Philadelphia 76ers will enter the NBA Playoffs with the third seed of the Eastern Conference.

This could be one of those 76ers games where they look like a team that can win the East. It's hard to figure out which 76ers team you're going to get on a nightly basis. I'll take the free bucket, but I don't love this game either way. With that said, the Hawks letdown last night probably had some lookahead factor to it and the 76ers need this game to kind of lock up the third seed in the East.The Milwaukee Bucks are winning still, but half their roster seems to either be banged up or in rest mode for the playoffs. I've bashed thePhiladelphia 76ers a little bit, as a team with all this talent shouldn't be this inconsistent.

More WAGs

It is going to be very entertaining watching Simmons and (fingers crossed) Embiid debut in the playoffs very soon. Simmons had an average game last time out in a 121-113 win at the Hawks but still managed 14 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block over 29 minutes. He has spearheaded the Sixers' 15-game winning streak and is the clear favorite ahead of Utah's Donovan Mitchell and LA's Kyle Kuzma for Rookie of the Year honors. Aside from hitting a 3-pointer, there isn't much Philadelphia point guard Ben Simmons can't do on the basketball court. He is averaging 15.9 points, 8.2 assists and 8.2 rebounds per game. With center Joel Embiid out of the lineup, he has really taken his game up a notch to ensure Philadelphia continued rolling.

What is certain is that the Sixers need Embiid to win, but can't ride him at the risk of his health. Only TJ McConnell did anything of note, so the project is still on for Philly. In the Sixers last match, which was a loss, to the Mavericks, the Sixers played all thirteen available players in that game. It was clear that they were looking for combinations that can produce when their stars were out of the game.

Having said that, any disappointment in that regard should dissipate very quickly thanks to what the game does have in store. Considering the state of the art Fiserv Forum represents one of the leagues crown jewels, Bucks fans have a right to feel a little aggrieved at the fact that the teams wait for a home game on Christmas Day continues.

Milwaukee currently has a game lead on the Heat and Wizards for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, but a loss coupled with wins by the other two could drop the Bucks into the eighth seed. Coupled with guards Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton, the Bucks have three proven producers that could make them a prime pick to pull off an upset if the opponent is right. When you have Giannis Antetokounmpo on your roster, you automatically have a matchup nightmare for any opponent. It has been a strange season for Milwaukee that included the firing of previous head coach Jason Kidd, but it's still not a team anyone is looking forward to facing in the postseason.

With the NBAs Christmas Day slate being revealed on Friday, a matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers gives Milwaukee Bucks fans something to look forward to.

The schedule emerged on Friday via reports from ESPN, tabbing the Bucks visit to the Philadelphia 76ers as part of a jam-packed and enticing collection of games. Elsewhere, the Clippers and Lakers will go head to head, the Warriors and Rockets will continue their rivalry, the up-and-coming Pelicans and Nuggets will battle it out, and the champion Raptors will host the Boston Celtics.

The 76ers have come too far to not end the regular season with a victory. They have plenty of motivation as Cleveland is all but guaranteed to beat the Knicks tonight, meaning Philly must win its game in order to ensure its spot as the third seed. Sixteen wins in a row to finish the regular season would be crazy for a team that has played the majority of the streak without Embiid. A win over the Bucks is a tall task, but at home in front of a crowd that is playoff-ready after years of patience will propel the Sixers tonight.
