In their first meeting, the 76ers shot 4-for-19 (1-for-8 from three) and turned the ball over five times in the fourth quarter.

Seth Curry had one of his best games against his brother, scoring 24 points and was the best offensive option on the floor with Tobias Harris and Embiid both out. Until the final minutes, he was in a position to have more points than Steph in a head-to-head match.

However, Steph hit a three-pointer with a few minutes to go to take the lead in the brotherly battle.

The Warriors are still without Klay Thompson (achilles) and James Wiseman (knee), while Andre Iguodala (knee) is day-to-day as the team monitors his minutes.

In that game against the 76ers, the Warriors were firing on all cylinders, with 32 assists on 42 made field goals, 15 made threes, 17 made free throws and six players in double figures, led by Curry with 25 points, 10 assists and 4 rebounds.

The Chicago Bulls Have Signed Steph Curry And Kevin Durant's Former Teammate On The Golden State Warriors

The Chicago Bulls have announced that they have signed NBA veteran Alfonzo McKinnie. 

The announcement that came from the team on Friday can be seen in a tweet that is embedded below from their Twitter account. 

Right now, the Bulls are one of the best teams in the entire NBA, and after missing the playoffs in each of the last four seasons, they sit as the second seed in the Eastern Conference at 17-9 on the season in their first 26 games.  

McKinnie is 29-years-old and has played for the Toronto Raptors, Golden State Warriors, Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers, over four seasons.  

His best year of his NBA career came in 2019 when he played 72 regular season games for the Warriors, and 22 playoff games, making it all the way to Game 6 of the NBA Finals before losing to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors.

    Golden State Warriors vs. Philadelphia 76ers Preview Sixers Having Shooting Troubles

    Prior to getting blown out on Thursday by the Jazz, the 76ers had won three straight games after losing to the Celtics by just one. In fact, since Joel Embiid returned to play, they are 4-3 with two one-point losses. That one to the Celtics, and another to the Timberwolves in overtime in his first game back from injury.

    Even with Embiid back in the lineup, though, they are struggling to find their way offensively. They rank 24th in Offensive Rating since Embiid Returned, but are 8th in Offensive Rating on the season. It’s not like Embiid is a downside offensively, as he’s a net positive for their offensive rating this season per NBA Advanced Stats’ On/Off court numbers.

    The bulk of their issues have come from poor shooting. They are 25th in the NBA in eFG% and 22nd in three-point % over their last seven games. Whereas on the season, they are the 12th best three-point shooting team. We saw this play out pretty clearly in their game against the Jazz on Thursday. The Sixers shot an abysmal 6-33 (18.2%) from three and, if they had just made a couple open shots in the second half, would have brought that game down to the wire. So, a big key for the Sixers getting back on track will be making shots, plain and simple.

    The good news for the Sixers is their defense has improved considerably. While they rank 20th in the NBA in Defensive Rating this season, they rank 11th in the last ten games.

    Warriors are NBA’s Best

    There isn’t much to say about the Warriors. They are tied for the NBA’s best record at 21-4. They are 1st in Adjusted Defensive Rating, 4th in Adjusted Offensive Rating and 1st in Adjusted Net Rating per Dunks and Threes. Steph Curry is having an MVP season, averaging 27.5 points, 6.3 AST and 5.5 REB with a 57.4 eFG%.

    Around him he has Draymond Green, Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins and plenty of others playing well and operating like a well-oiled machine. When we think of the Warriors, we automatically assume offense. While they have a top five offense this season, it’s their defense that has (at least to me) been the real show stopper.

    Not only do they have one of the best defensive players in the NBA in Draymond Green, but they also boast lengthy defenders like Wiggins, Payton II, Toscano-Anderson and Igoudala. They play with a high level of IQ and rarely allow their opponents to get open looks.

    For this matchup, though, there is something interesting to note. The Warriors allow the second most field goal attempts per game from 5-9 feet out, per NBA Advanced Stats. The 76ers, on the other hand, shoot the 4th most field goal attempts per game from that range, mostly thanks to Joel Embiid’s soft touch around the rim as well as Tobias Harris’ short pull up shots.

    Golden State Warriors vs Philadelphia 76ers Prediction

    This feels like a tough spot for the Warriors, traveling west to east to face a motivated 76ers team off a loss in which they shot 18% from three. Additionally, I like Joel Embiid’s outlook in this game. I think he’ll get a lot of opportunities to take close shots around the rim, and with his feathery touch, he can put up 30-40 points and lead his team.

    I backed the 76ers against the Jazz as 3.5 point home underdogs on Thursday and got burned. But I expect the shooting to be better for Philadelphia tonight, as they bring this game down to the wire. Additionally, it seems like the entire world is betting on the Warriors in a nationally televised game here. 92% of the money is on the Warriors alongside 67% of the tickets, but the line opened at GSW-4 and has fallen to GSW -3. I like the contrarian spot to back Philadelphia here as short home underdogs. It’s ugly, but I think it pays off.
