The warriors have not guaranteed anything yet
Golden State can’t think about the playoffs yet because a place there is not guaranteed. The Warriors are ranked sixth in the West, however competition in the conference is so fierce that a play-off spot is far from guaranteed. In the last game, the team scored a great away victory over direct rivals Dallas Mavericks – 125:123, everything was decided in the last seconds, although the opponent intended to appeal the result of the match due to refereeing. At least four players will miss due to injury.
Philadelphia can afford to conserve energy
The Sixers are doing great this season, they are third in the East and already guaranteed a spot in the playoffs, the loss to second-placed Boston is only one win, they play in the reserve. The team is in phenomenal form, with 9 wins in 10 matches, losing after overtime for the first time in this period. In the last meeting we managed to easily beat Chicago with the score 116:91. At least one player will miss this meeting, James Harden is doubtful.
It will be an interesting clash of strong teams, so it is extremely difficult to give someone an advantage. Golden State is mentioned as a small favorite, on the side of the “warriors” what matters is their arena and higher motivation. Philadelphia has a reputation for stability and a solid track record. Such a clash is definitely worth watching, we dare to bet on the success of the owners of the dance floor.
