How Can the Sixers beat the Jazz?
The Philadelphia 76ers enter this matchup with four key contributors unavailable for play. when they take on Utah, the Sixers need to find more scoring from their bench unit.
In their last game against the Pacers, the starters were solid save for some efficiency issues. However, their bench contributed just 21 points on 7 of 23 shooting from the field.
Niang, Milton, and Korkmaz are all capable players. But if Philly wants a victory head coach Doc Rivers needs to bring something out of his reserves. If they don’t perform, Philly simply doesn’t have the firepower to keep pace.
Sixers Key Player: (F) Tobias Harris
— Philadelphia 76ers (@sixers) November 14, 2021
After missing six straight games, Harris returned to the Sixers lineup with varying results. With Embiid out, Harris needs to be Philly’s star man on the court.
After struggling in his first game back against Toronto, Harris rebounded with 32 points and 11 rebounds against the Indiana Pacers.
Harris needs to be aggressive on the offensive end, as Philadelphia are lacking a natural playmaker and a finisher in the paint. The Sixers are too shorthanded for Harris to have an off night.
How can the Jazz beat the Sixers?
the Utah Jazz face off against a Sixers team that is missing a key piece in their gameplan. While everyone keys in on Joel Embiid’s scoring, it is his presence on the glass that tends to lead them to victory.
In losses, the Sixers average just 42.2 points per game compared to their opponents’ 47.2 rebounds per game. With Embiid out of the lineup, Gobert and Whiteside need to secure the end of possessions and create extra possessions with their rebounding.
The Jazz outrebound their opponents by an average of nine in victories through this season. If they dominate the paint, this game should send Philly to five straight losses.
Jazz Key Player: (C) Rudy Gobert

The Utah Jazz are coming off of a tight loss to the Miami Heat. When they face the Sixers, they need to take advantage of their strength in the paint in order to take a victory.
No player is as intimidating in the paint as Rudy Gobert. However he will need to apply himself on the offensive end to beat the Sixers. He is coming off of a 14 point, 13 rebounds loss in his last game.
The French international must be aggressive for Utah to take a victory over the Sixers. If he can finish consistently at the rim, it opens up many more opportunities for the Jazz offence.
