|Time | Channel||8 p.m. ET | BSNO|
The Sixers look for back-to-back wins as they head to New Orleans to take on the Pelicans on Friday night.
Philadelphia is coming off a 10-point win over the Celtics in which Joel Embiid continued his season-long dominance of Boston with 35 points and six rebounds.
The Pelicans have lost back-to-back games, and four of their last five overall.
They fell to the Brooklyn Nets in Kevin Durant’s return on Wednesday, one of the few games in which Zion Williamson struggled shooting from the field (4-for-12 from the field in Brooklyn).
Philadelphia is 28-20-3 on against the spread (ATS) this season. With Joel Embiid reportedly being good to go on Friday night, it’s tough to imagine a scenario where the 76ers struggle with the still-figuring-things-out-as-a-unit Pelicans.
