Philadelphia is on the verge of setting the record for the worst start in NBA history.

San Antonio

The Spurs have been getting contributions from top to bottom on their roster. They have won seven in a row and nine of their last ten. It seems as if they are becoming better with age.

Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, and Tim Duncan make up the Big 3 and they are just as efficient as ever. Each players’ PER is as high as ever. The lowest of the three is 17.0.

Young superstar Kawhi Leonard is developing into possibly the new head of the Big 3. He is averaging 14.5 points per game this year and is playing exceptional on the defensive end.

Role players Danny Green, Boris Diaw, and Aron Baynes have also been on top of their game during the Spurs’ seven game win streak. Coach Popovich, who previously missed a few games due to an undisclosed medical procedure, has his players on the same page.

San Antonio is always near the top of the league when it comes to team defense.

This year they are right up there again, only allowing 92.5 points per game.


The 76ers are still seeking their first win on the season. There have been some positives though. The young guys seem to have not let this losing streak effect their spirits.

Coach Brett Brown, former assistant coach for the Spurs, has had a rough start with his team. Last year they recorded a 19-63 record in his first year as head coach.

Michael Carter-Williams is fresh off recording his third career triple double against the Mavericks and has elevated his game to a new level. The young point guard is averaging 14.7 points per game along with 6.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists.

Philadelphia will be without leading scorer Tony Wroten in Wednesday nights game. Wrote is averaging 17.9 points per game and his efforts will be greatly missed after suffering a knee sprain last week.

Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid, and rookie second round draft pick K.J. McDaniels will have to get healthy and get used to playing with each other for this team to be successful.

NBA Handicapping Trends:

  • 76ers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games.
  • 76ers are 3-0 ATS this year when getting double digit points.
  • Spurs are 6-12 ATS in Philadelphia in their last 18 games.

NBA Gambling Prediction

Without leading scorer Tony Wroten, the 76ers will struggle to score points. Philadelphia has been playing extremely tough for 48 minutes, especially in these last couple games. They are desperately trying to end this streak.

The Spurs have been known to rest their star players, especially on the road and the backend of back to back games.

With San Antonio’s bench playing in the late garbage minutes and Philadelphia’s desire to end this infamous streak, the 76ers will make the score look closer than the game actually was.

Free 4* NBA Betting Pick: Philadelphia +13.5

Expect the Spurs to come out and build up a big lead early and take their starters out early.

San Antonio 98, Philadelphia 89

The 76ers will still be fighting and reduce the deficit to cover the spread.
