Sixers vs Magic Preview
Magic will look to bounce back in today’s match but they will have to do that without the services of Jonathan Isaac. Moreover, Aaron Gordon has been listed as questionable for the game too.
Sixers will also not enjoy the services of Ben Simmons, he is out with an injured left knee. Simmons anyway wasn’t making much of an impact in the restart.
Joel Embiid though has been phenomenal for the Sixers, having scored 97 points, 41 rebounds, and 12 assists in the previous three encounters.
For Magic Nikola Vucevic is leading the points and the rebound stats. He is averaging 19.5 PPG and 10.9 rebounds in the 2019-20 NBA season. In the restart, the big man has scored a total of 81 points and has been the main driving force for Magic.
With Joe Embiid firing, Sixers will go as favorites in the game. They have the winning momentum behind them and would look to improve on previous encounter stats. Magic have defeated Sixers in the previous two games in the 2019-20 NBA season.
