Sixers Showing Dominance
The Philadelphia 76ers have been playing at an outstanding level recently, as evidenced by their two-game winning streak and 8-2 record over the last ten games. The game against New Orleans on Monday, January 2nd was no exception. They managed to hit their average percentages playing in the Wells Fargo Center, shooting 47.7% from the floor, 42.9% from the 3-point range, and 82.1% from the charity stripe.
Joel Embiid lifts the Sixers with his 42 points, eleven rebounds, and five assists to secure the victory 120-111. With a strong 15-5 home record, they’re looking to continue that success in their next game at home against the Pacers tomorrow.
Pacers Looking Dangerous This Season
The Sixers aren’t the only team who’s showing off in the East, as the Indiana Pacers had a sound start to 2023, securing a morale-boosting victory on home soil against the Toronto Raptors. Boosted by rookie Bennedict Mathurin’s impressive performance – with 21 points and 3 rebounds in just 27 minutes – the Pacers registered a 48.4% field goal percentage, 37.0% from three, and 84.6% from the free-throw line.
With 7 wins from their last 10 games, including four consecutive victories of late, the squad has gained some much-needed momentum coming out of a testing period for the team ahead of their upcoming game against the Portland Trail Blazers at Gainbridge Fieldhouse.
Despite being firm favorites at home, sitting 8-10 from away fixtures this season will serve as an ever more pertinent warning that despite winning soon they cannot rest easy until they hit those frighteningly unfamiliar roads to ensure their playoff position is duly secured.
