Venue – Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia
DET vs PHI DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Philadelphia 76ers host Detroit Pistons in an NBA match at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, on Saturday night (IST).
Philadelphia 76ers must improve on their defence if they are to compete with the Eastern conference giants Boston Celtics and Toronto Raptors. The off-seaosn hadn’t gone as planned. Their primary targets, LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard signed elsewhere and now the Sixers are left with the same group which helped them to the 3rd best defensive unit in the regular season of the last campaign.
However, this season their defence has shown some fragilities and collapsed on more than one occasion.
Still, the 76ers remain a very dangerous outfit for any team in NBA. The likes of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid can destroy any team on their day with the latter giving the perfect example of his prowesses in the last game against the Los Angeles Clippers.
The 24-year-old Cameroonian burst for 41 points and 13 rebounds in the match. While Simmons also had a double-double and helped Philadelphia to a comfortable 122-113 win over the Clippers.
Detroit Piston have played two games less their hosts in this match. They sit at 5th in the East courtesy of their better winning percentage.
Last season, they missed out on the playoffs by just four games. And they looked a bit motivated and ready to make amended for the last season’s heartbreak after they started their campaign with four straight wins.
But since the 110-103 win over Cleveland Cavaliers, Pistons have lost all three games, twice against Boston Celtics and the last one 120-119 vs Brooklyn Nets.
Detroit must raise their game for their next tough assignment as Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons look in a great touch at the moment.
Regular Season Record-
Philadelphia 76ers: W-5, L-4
Detroit Pistons: W-4, L-3
Players to watch out for:
Joel Embiid – A player who could fetch you some incredible points in this match. Sixers’ star has been racking up 28.6 points this season.
JJ Redick – Though Ben Simmons can be a true match winner on his day, JJ Redick is scoring more consistently.
Blake Griffin – Arguably the biggest name in Detroit as far as Basketball is concerned. Blake Griffin has been performing way better than his teammates. It’s not long when the 29-year-old dropped 50 points against the Sixers, less than a fortnight ago. He is the biggest threat to 76ers and could be your biggest hero in this match.
Andre Drummond – He has done well so far. The 25-year-old is averaging more than 19 points per game this season. He is consistent and should be in your team to help you win more points.

DET vs PHI DREAM11 Fantasy Team:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This is the 2nd instalment of this fixture this season, and if the first game is anything to go by, then Balke Griffin could be the man targetted by the Sixers in this game. Don’t be surprised to see many fouls on the Pistons’ starman as he bamboozled them in his 50-point exhibition just a fortnight ago.
But can the lightning strike twice? Yes, it certainly can because Griffin is too good a player.
However, we are expecting Philadelphia to be that extra cautious and prepared for this match. A Sixers win is our prediction.
