NBA Preview: Philadelphia Sixers (45-22) at Cleveland Cavaliers (44-27)

When the Philadelphia 76ers visit the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday, they will be aiming for their sixth victory in a row.

On Sunday, the Sixers easily defeated the Washington Wizards 112-93, and they will play Cleveland in the first of three road games.

Joel Embiid had 34 points, eight rebounds, four assists, and four blocked shots in his sixth consecutive game with at least 30 points.

James Harden of Philadelphia notched his 31st point-assist double-double of the season with 18 points and 14 assists.

In addition to receiving some much-needed rest by sitting out the fourth quarter with the victory already sealed, Embiid maintained his dominance on the defensive end.

In the Washington game, Sixers forward Jalen McDaniels suffered a right hip contusion. He didn’t show up for Tuesday’s practice, and it wasn’t clear if he could play against the Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers are coming off consecutive road victories over the Charlotte Hornets, so they will aim for their third win in a row.

On Sunday, Cleveland prevailed 114-108, and on Tuesday, it triumphed 120-104.

Evan Mobley set up 26 focuses in the rematch for the Cavaliers, who were without Donovan Mitchell (finger sprain) and Jarrett Allen (eye wound).

Cleveland shot 51.1% from the field and 46.7 percent (14 of 30) from three-point range for a game that featured 24 points from Cedi Osman, 22 from Caris LeVert, and 19 points from Darius Garland.

The Cavaliers were successful in defeating the struggling Hornets despite their lack of depth; however, facing the Sixers will present a much more difficult challenge.

The Cavaliers ought to be more profound on Wednesday, as Mitchell is supposed to play. Since suffering the injury on Friday against the Miami Heat, Allen has missed two games consecutively. Bickerstaff claims that he is taken into account to be day-to-day.
