Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers
Los Angeles Clippers Preview
After dealing the Cleveland Cavaliers their worst home loss in franchise history on Sunday, the Los Angeles Clippers hope to play the role of road menace again in their Tuesday visit to face the Philadelphia 76ers. Los Angeles surged to its sixth win in eight games with a 133-92 rout of the Cavaliers behind 25 points from Lou Williams and 22 from Paul George.
Playing in his first game with the Clippers after arriving from the New York Knicks at the trade deadline, Marcus Morris Sr. chipped in 10 points. Kawhi Leonard missed the game due to a knee injury but is expected back Tuesday. The Clippers have lost four consecutive games to the 76ers, and three straight in Philadelphia.
Philadelphia 76ers Preview
Shooting guard Furkan Korkmaz and the Philadelphia 76ers will look to remain on a roll as the team hosts the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday night. The 76ers improved to an NBA-best 24-2 at home with a 118-111 victory against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday, Philadelphia’s second consecutive victory on the heels of an 0-4 road trip.
Korkmaz has eclipsed 30 points in each of the past two contests while shooting a combined 13-for-20 (65 percent) from 3-point range. Ben Simmons registered his team-high fifth triple-double, contributing 19 points, 10 assists and 10 rebounds against Chicago. Joel Embiid had 28 points and 12 rebounds for his team-best 30th double-double despite ongoing neck stiffness.
