Philadelphia 76ers vs LA Clippers: Prediction(Mar 24, 2024)

The Philadelphia 76ers will face the LA Clippers on March 24 at the Crypto.com Arena. The 76ers have lost their last two games against the Phoenix Suns and the LA Lakers, respectively. Meanwhile, the Clippers are starting their two-game homestand after defeating the Portland Trail Blazers in consecutive games. The upcoming contest will be James Harden’s first against his former team. 

 

Preview 

The Philadelphia 76ers are 9-15 since Joel Embiid went down with a meniscus injury. They are in 8th place in the Eastern Conference with a 38–32 record. Philadelphia still has a shot at top-six playoff qualification. They gave tough competition to the Lakers in the previous game that was won by the LA (101-94). While their offense was not up to par, the defense gave them a solid chance of winning. Philadelphia’s defense is 4th in the league. 

On the other hand, the Clippers are making a comeback after a rough stretch. They scored consecutive wins over the Blazers. Paul George scored 27 and 31 points in the two games against Portland. Meanwhile, Harden tallied 24 assists in those games. If they continue to play like this and support Kawhi Leonard, LA will regain their form. 

 

Starting lineup 

The 76ers will most likely start with Tyrese Maxey, Kelly Oubre Jr, Cameron Payne, Tobias Harris and Mo Bamba.

The LA Clippers are expected to start with Terance Mann, James Harden, Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and Ivica Zubac. 

 

Betting Tips  

Tyrese Maxey’s over/under for the upcoming contest is 26.5 points. He has been averaging 23.3 points over his past six games but has gone over in four of his last five appearances. 

Kawhi Leonard’s over/under for Sunday is 24.5 points. He has gone over this mark two times in the last five games.
