The Philadelphia 76ers face Kawhi Leonard for the first time since his four-bouncer, baseline jumper ended their playoff run last spring. Leonard rolls into the City of Brotherly Love with his new Clipper teammates with the hopes of handing the Sixers just their third home loss this seas

NBA Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Clippers enter Tuesday’s tilt the winners of four of their last five games – the most recent on Monday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Los Angeles’ other basketball team is second in the Western Conference to the Lakers at 37-16.

Winning away from the Staples Center hasn’t been as easy for Doc Rivers’ side. The Clippers are 22-5 on their home floor and 15-11 on the road. LA makes a habit of beating up on the Eastern Conference. The squad is 16-4 straight up and 14-6 against the spread in non-conference games this season.

The Clippers have yet to play the Sixers since Leonard and Paul George joined over the summer. Philadelphia is 7-0 against the number in its last seven games against the Clips.

Speaking of Philly, the team is just 1-6 ATS in its last seven games. Of course, that was with four road games – something that’s proved to be the club’s kryptonite. The 76ers are just 9-19 (7-19-2 ATS) on the road, but 24-2 (16-11 ATS) at home. 

These are two of the more popular picks to win the NBA championship this June. Sports Interaction lists the Clippers at +300 and the Sixers at +1600. Philly is also the second favourite to win the Eastern Conference behind Milwaukee at +590.

L.A. Clippers

The Clippers acquired sharp-shooting wing Marcus Morris on trade deadline from the New York Knicks. He scored 10 points on 5-for-12 shooting in his Clipper debut on Sunday night. He went 0-for-4 from beyond the arc in the game which is untrue to his form this season.

Morris is hitting 43.9 percent of his triples on more than six attempts per game. He’s also averaging a career-best 19.6 points per game this season. The point average will drop now that he takes on a smaller role with the Clippers compared to the Knicks. LA just hopes he can continue to hit from 3-point land.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers aren’t getting consistent performances out of Joel Embiid. The All-Star centre is coming off a 28-point, 12-rebound, 5-assist, 4-block effort on Sunday against the Bulls. That’s the good news. The bad news is his scoring is down almost a full five points per game from last season.
