The Philadelphia 76ers have been in top form since the second half of the campaign kicked off and have registered eight wins out of nine games. Even more remarkable about their winning run is that star man Joel Embiid hasn't featured in the last eight games. Despite that, the 76ers have been able to record seven wins during that period.

They beat the LA Lakers in their last outing with a 109-101 scoreline. Danny Green tormented his former side on his return to the Staples Center as he scored 28 points, making eight shots from long range in the process. A strong third-quarter performance by the 76ers was the turning point of the match as they outscored their opponents 35-17 during that stretch.

The LA Clippers, on the other hand, finally seem to have rediscovered their mojo after a difficult few weeks, as evident from their last four wins. In their last outing, they beat the San Antonio Spurs 98-85, despite playing just eight players on the night. Paul George led the charge with a double-double (24 points, 13 rebounds), while Reggie Jackson added 28 points to help the Clippers win.

The Philadelphia 76ers will be the overwhelming favorites to win this tie, owing to their better form and squad depth when compared to the LA Clippers. Regardless, it is an interesting matchup, which will also see Doc Rivers return to face his former players with his new team for the first time since his departure.
