In the loss to Utah the 76ers had a 14-point edge in free throws but only shot 41.3% from the floor. They also allowed 14 offensive rebounds while only grabbing seven.

Embiid led the Sixers with 27 points and 16 rebounds and while he was 16/18 from the free throw line, he was only 5/16 from the floor. Tobias Harris went for 16 points and Josh Richardson had 24 points, while Simmons only had two points in 10 minutes before leaving with a shoulder injury.

The Nuggets killed it on defense in their last game, which was a 109-89 win over the Miami Heat. They held the Heat to a FG% of only 36.4% while they shot a solid 52.3% from the field.

Jamaal Murray was the high scorer with 21 points on 9/15 shooting and five other players went for double figures. Murray leads the team on the season, averaging 18.9 ppg, and the balanced Denver team has four other players averaging at least 11 ppg.

One big matchup in this game is the battle of the big men between Embiid (24.3 ppg, 11.8 rpg) and Nikola Jokic (14.9 ppg, 9.7 rpg, 5.9 apg). Jokic is coming off a season-low nine points against the Heat and his defense facing Embiid will be more important than his offense in this game.

Embiid and company will be facing a Nuggets defense that ranks fifth in the league in opponents’ points per game. Jokic will need help in the paint on defense, as the 76ers have a loaded frontcourt with Harris and Al Horford combining to average 36.8 ppg.

76ers @ Nuggets NBA betting predictions

Denver Nuggets -5.5 at -111.11 with Bovada

Take defense over offense in this game and back the Nuggets. They will play solid D for a third straight game and Jokic will keep Embiid from having a big night. The Nuggets will win this game and cover the spread to extend their winning streak to three games while sending the 76ers to their third straight loss.
