Why the Warriors can cover

Golden State fared well in the first matchup against Philadelphia, emerging victorious on Jan. 30. The Warriors shot 55.7% from the field and 43.8% from 3-point range in that win, generating 32 assists in the process. On defense, Golden State also forced 16 turnovers and allowed only 11 assists. The Warriors also have a dynamic force in Stephen Curry, who generated 37 points, eight rebounds, and seven assists in that head-to-head victory. Curry leads the NBA in 3-pointers (213) and free throw percentage (93.2%) this season, and he is averaging 28.1 points per game. 

In the last six outings, Curry is averaging 37.5 points per game on 45.1% 3-point shooting, and he is the engine of an offense scoring more than 1.17 points per possession this season. The Warriors are also in the top six of the NBA in offensive rebound rate (31.8%) and second-chance points (15.9 per game), and Golden State is averaging more than 28 assists per contest as a team. On defense, the Warriors’ strength is closing possessions, with a 72% defensive rebound rate and only 13.3 second-chance points allowed per game. See who to back at SportsLine.

Why the 76ers can cover

Philadelphia has a top-10 defense this season, including top-five marks in 3-point defense and steals. The 76ers can rely on stout production on that side of the floor, and Philadelphia is elite on offense. Led by All-Star guard Tyrese Maxey, the 76ers are scoring 1.19 points per possession to rank in the top six of the league. Philadelphia is the NBA’s best team at the free throw line, ranking in the top two in both free throw attempts (27.2 per game) and free throw percentage (83.2%). The 76ers also lead the league in turnover prevention, committing a giveaway on only 11.9% of offensive possessions, and Philadelphia wins on the margins. 

That includes top-10 rankings in second-chance points (15.1 per game), fast break points (16.3 per game), and points in the paint (52.2 per game), and the Warriors struggle to create havoc on the defensive side. Golden State is near the bottom of the NBA in turnovers created (12.5 per game), steals (6.6 per game), and blocked shots (4.0 per game) this season. Maxey is also enjoying tremendous success in his first All-Star season, averaging 25.9 points and 6.4 assists per game while shooting 38% from beyond the 3-point arc. See who to back at SportsLine.
