Philadelphia 76ers Team News
The Sixers entered this season with big changes in their roster, and above all, there was a change of coach. Experienced Nick Nurse has arrived, he insists on a solid defense that brings results this season. Also, the 76ers “got rid” of James Harden, who did not fit into the game system that Nurse was forcing and who was dissatisfied in Philadelphia. His role was maximally used by Tyrese Maxey, who is having a great season and is averaging 26 points and is one of the biggest candidates for the most improved player.
However, the alpha and omega of the team is Joel Embiid, who is the current MVP of the league, and it seems that he has raised his level of play this season. This season, Embiid scored less than 30 points only three times, while he crossed the 50-point mark twice. In addition to scoring 34 points on average, Embiid also grabs almost 12 rebounds per game, all while shooting 54% from the field. His physical dominance, above all in the attack, is confirmed by the fact that he is one of the most fouled players in the league, and makes almost 11 free throws per game. His duel against Jokic will be a true clash of titans, and we expect Embiid to be maximally focused to show that he is the main candidate for the MVP award this season as well.
After three straight losses, the Sixers returned to the winning track and defeated the Kings first, and then the Rockets in the last game, and are in third place in the East with a score of 25-13.
Denver Nuggets Team News
This season, the Nuggets are playing at a slower pace than last season, when they were maximally aggressive throughout the regular part of the competition and did not have any surprising defeats, as is the case this year. It is obvious that they are timing their form for the playoffs and to show their class and maximum commitment in certain derby matches, such as the duel with the Sixers. Despite this, they are in an excellent third place in the West with the same number of wins as the leading Timberwolves.
Throughout the season, they had major problems with injuries, which had a significant impact on the results, as well as the playing time of the leading players, which had to be balanced throughout the season. Jokic is the leader of the team, who is also getting a lot of help this season in the form of Murray and Gordon. Jokic is almost at the triple-double average, but his offensive production has been much worse in the last few games. Although Jokic is a player who plays with a lot of contact, unlike Embiid, he is nowhere near protected by the referees, and he makes only five free throws on average.
We believe that both of these great players will be maximally focused to prove themselves in a direct duel and that the outcome of the duel will depend on their teammates who will make the key difference.
