Thunder Have Won 16 Straight Against 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are realizing they’ll only go as far as their young talent will take them, as Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons are continually giving the Sixers a chance to win whenever they’re on the floor. After pushing their young stars harder than ever, the 76ers will need to get more contributions from the rest of the team vs the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday.

Xbet opened the Thunder as 1.5-point road underdogs with a total of 212.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the 76ers’ last seven games with a closing total of 213.0 or more.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of the Thunder’s last 13 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Thunder are 0-6 ATS in their last six games after a win.

Embiid logged a career-high 39 minutes in the 118-112 overtime triumph over Minnesota after missing the previous two games with a back injury. Simmons leads the team in minutes (36.2) this season while averaging 17.5 points, 8.9 rebounds and 7.7 assists per game. The LSU product logged at least 36 minutes in each of the last eight games and has gone 40 or more four times in that span.

Oklahoma City is coming off a 100-95 win over Indiana in its last appearance despite an off night by point guard Russell Westbrook. Westbrook, who shot 3-for-17 in the game, still recorded a triple-double thanks to 10 points, 17 rebounds and 12 assists. The triple-double was Westbrook’s 35th in 2017 – the most ever in a calendar year.

Oklahoma has absolutely dominated this series of late. In the Thunder’s last 16 vs the 76ers, they’re a ridiculous 16-0 SU.
