Philadelphia 76ers ATS Record: 42-29-1

Golden State Warriors ATS Record: 34-39-0

The Golden State Warriors and Philadelphia 76ers meet for the final time this regular season. The Sixers have secured a place in the NBA Playoffs with a 49-23 overall record after going 9-1 in their last ten games. The Warriors are still trying to secure sixth in the West, owning a 38-36 overall record after going just 4-6 over their last ten games.

The Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the league's best three-and-D teams this season, hitting 12.8 threes per game (9th in the NBA) on 38.9% efficiency (1st in the NBA) while allowing just 110.2 points per game (3rd in the NBA) on 46.9% from the field and 34.4% from three-point range. Philadelphia's offense has been terrific through their 9-1 run, scoring 123.0 points per game on a plus-13.9 points differential while shooting 51.4% from the field and 42.0% from three-point range.

The Golden State Warriors are what you'd call an all-offense team, as they score 118.4 points per game (2nd in the NBA) while hitting 16.5 threes (1st in the NBA) on 38.2% efficiency from deep (3rd in the NBA). Golden State's defense has failed them through their 4-6 run of form, allowing 123.6 points per game on 48.3% from the field while allowing 14.8 threes per game and committing 15.6 turnovers per game.

With the opportunity to secure a playoff position, Golden State and its glut of proven stars will rise to the challenge. Despite the Sixers' impressive current form, we expect the Golden State Warriors to cover the spread in this matchup. With James Harden's availability in question and the Warriors' tremendous ability at home, we expect them to break the Sixers' run of form.

Key Players & Stats

Stephen Curry wasn't available in the Warriors' last game against the Philadelphia 76ers, but he's been in great form as of late despite Golden State's up-and-down record. Curry is coming off a 20-point, 13 assists, five rebound effort against the Dallas Mavericks. On the season, Curry is averaging 29.6 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists on 49.8% from the field and 43.0% from three-point range. Curry's success on the offensive end will determine the Warriors' chances against a stout defensive team like the Sixers.

Tyrese Maxey is the one healthy star the Sixers have left on their roster after Embiid left their last game with calf tightness. Maxey is a dynamic guard who led the Sixers to victory in their previous game with a 21-point, five rebounds, and four-assist performance. The Sixers guard shoots 44.0% from three in wins and 36.8% in losses, so his ability to be efficient from three will be critical.
