The Warriors come in with an 11-4 record and 7-8 ATS after a 92-88 loss at the Celtics. The 76ers are 8-6 overall and 10-4 ATS following a 115-109 win at the Lakers. Golden State secured a 135-114 home win over the Sixers on Nov. 11. The Warriors are 3-0 straight up and 1-2 ATS in three meetings since the start of last season. The under has gone 2-1.

In the loss at Boston, Kevin Durant led the way with 24 points along with three assists and two blocked shots. Klay Thompson had 13 points, seven rebounds and three assists. Draymond Green added 11 points, eight rebounds and five assists. The Warriors were outscored 50-41 in the second half.

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.
