The 76ers have been solid shooting the ball throughout this season. Philadelphia has made 46.2 percent of their shots from the field, which is 15th in the league. The 76ers have shot 36 percent from behind the arc, which is 10th in the NBA. Philadelphia has sunk 82 percent of their shots from the free throw line, which is 1st in the league.

Phoenix has been really strong shooting the ball on the season. The Suns have been shooting 48.8 percent from the field, which is 1st in the NBA. Phoenix has made 36.8 percent of their shots from deep, which is 5th in the league. The Suns have drained 80.1 percent of their shots from the charity stripe, which is 7th in the NBA.

The Suns have been the better team shooting the ball and have the edge on defense in this one. Phoenix has held their opponents to a 44.3 percent from the field, which is 3rd in the league. Philadelphia has allowed opposing teams to shoot 45.5 percent from the field, which is 14th in the NBA. Both teams will look for their defense to lead them in this one.

Top Performers

Joel Embiid and James Harden have been the leaders for Philadelphia since joining after the All-Star break. Embiid is averaging 29.8 points and 11.3 rebounds per game. Harden has averaged 23 points, 7.6 rebounds and 9.9 assists per game. Tobias Harris is averaging 17.5 points and 6.9 rebounds. Tyrese Maxey has averaged 17.4 points per game to round out the lineup.

Devin Booker has been strong for the Suns on the season. Booker has averaged 26.3 points per game. Deandre Ayton is averaging 17.3 points and 10 rebounds per game. Chris Paul has averaged 15 points and 10.7 assists per game. Mikal Bridges has averaged 14.3 points. Cameron Payne rounds out the lineup, averaging 11.2 points per game.

These two teams have been led by their stars throughout this season. Embiid and Harden have matched up together to really spread the floor making the 76ers a more dangerous team. Phoenix has solid depth as well, making them dangerous up and down the floor. If either team can have some players step up in this one, it could be enough for the win.

Pick Overview

These two teams have been strong throughout this season and will look for a huge win on Sunday night. The 76ers lost the first game of the season series, but will look to come out stronger on the road with Harden in the lineup. Phoenix has been red hot though and will look to get the home crowd into it early. I expect a close game between these two teams.

BetOnline has the Suns listed as a -5 against the spread in this one. This gives a solid edge to Phoenix at home in this one. I think that this line should be a bit closer to even with both teams playing strong on the season. Philadelphia will look to come out quickly as they try to set the pace in this one. As underdogs in this one, I like the value on the 76ers to cover the spread.
