Bet on Warriors vs. 76ers

The Warriors stumbled in the second half Thursday night as Boston won its 14th game in a row. Seeing Golden State drop two in a row seems outlandish, but Philly is coming into this one with extreme confidence after a solid West Coast trip capped by a special night from Embiid. Expect this game to stay competitive throughout and the hosts to stay within the number.
