GSW vs PHI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
In this marquee match, the talented Philadelphia 76ers face the reigning NBA champions in the regular season NBA match at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, on Sunday morning (IST).
The four games that Sixers played without Joel Embiid, three have produced positive results. And the only loss was against a full-fit Portland Trail Blazers. While the win in the last match against Paul George-less Oklahoma City Thunder came in a closely fought encounter at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Now Sixers have a fight on their hands as they come face to face against one of the biggest challenges in the NBA. Can they do it without Embidd, only time will tell.
Meanwhile, Warriors are stuttering at the moment after losing the last two games against the not-so-formidable opponents. Believe it or not, the Dubs lost against the out-of-form Miami Heat and Orlando Magic in tow consecutive games.
But the reigning champions were not at full strength in the last match with Kevin Durant given a rest ahead of the match against Sixers.
Regular Season Record-
Philadelphia 76ers: W-40, L-22
Golden State Warriors: W-43, L-19
Players to watch out for:
Tobias Harris –With Joel Embiid out, Tobias Harris will be burdened with extra responsibility and his two-way approach will be critical. The former Los Angeles Clippers star is aggregating 21.9 points per game in the first 8 games for Sixers.
Jimmy Butler – Scored 20 points in the last match against Orlando Magic, which was his highest contribution in the last five games. It shows that he has lost a bit of form but the former Minnesota Timberwolves star remains pivotal for Sixers’ chances both in this game and the playoffs.
Golden State Warriors:
Stephen Curry – One of the best players of all-time and the best shooter the NBA has ever seen. Stephen Curry is a two-time NBA MVP and is leading the points table for the Warriors. The 30-year-old ia averaging a team-high 28.4 points per game.
Kevin Durant – He remains a doubt for this match and may be given a rest. But there is a chance that Steve Kerr could name him in his roster for this match. If that’s the case, he will make a good and significant contribution. The former Oklahoma City Thunder is averaging 27.5 points per game.
