Philadelphia Looking To Get Back On Track
The Philadelphia 76ers are trying to get back on track after a disappointing loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday. They will take on the Orlando Magic on Sunday night, and that should be a game that Philadelphia does easily win, however, the Nuggets are a much better team than the Magic, so Philadelphia’s hoping that they’re going to be able to take care of business against Denver.
In Philadelphia’s most recent game against the Brooklyn Nets, they got absolutely embarrassed in this one as they lost by 29 points. Joel Embiid was still able to lead the way with 27 points, but it was probably his worst game of the season.
On the season, Philadelphia has the 12th rated net rating, the 13th ranked offensive rating, and the ninth rated defensive rating.
Nuggets Getting Healthy Soon
The Denver Nuggets have to feel pretty confident about what they’ve been able to accomplish this season. They’re going to be coming into this one having the sixth seed in the Western Conference despite being injured for most of the year. Jamal Murray has still yet to play a game and Michael Porter Jr has only played in a handful in the early part of the season. The Nuggets are being led by Nikola Jokic, who was the MVP a season ago and has a chance to win it again this year.
Denver will be coming into this one after a disappointing loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night, 127-115. In that game, Jokic was able to lead the way with 26 points.
On the season, the Denver Nuggets have the 11th rated net rating, the eighth rated offensive rating, and the 13th rated defense.

Free NBA Picks — 76ers vs Nuggets
For this game, I like the Philadelphia 76ers to win outright. I’m also going to take Nikola Jokic and Joel Embiid to score 25-plus points to get us some better odds.
I think that both of these guys realize that they are the top two MVP candidates in the NBA this season so if they are going to want to solidify that MVP award down the stretch, they’re going to have to prove to voters that one is better than the other and there’s no better way to do that than by beating one another in a head-to-head matchup.
