Philadelphia 76ers (4-3) at San Antonio Spurs (6-1)
Matchup to Watch: Kawhi Leonard vs. Evan Turner
Outside of the Golden State Warriors debacle, the Philadelphia 76ers, against everyones expectations, have been competed in every game this season. But now their up-and-down style of play meets a well oiled machine in the San Antonio Spurs. If anybody knows the Spurs well it’s 76ers head coach Brett Brown who spent the last seven seasons as an assistant coach under Greg Popovich.
Shockingly (not really) the Spurs are flying under the radar as they’re currently 6-1 and Tony Parker has been playing lights out. We’ve seen this story many times in the past years. The odds of the 76ers pulling off a victory over this team are extremely low, but another spectacular performance from Michael Carter-Williams and Evan Turner could be the key to an upset win.
