Thunder vs 76ers News and Preview
This is a matchup between two teams that have two different goals in mind. The Thunder are navigating their schedule in hopes of a high lottery pick. The 76ers are looking to win a championship and now have a superstar in James Harden. They put the Ben Simmons talk in the rear view mirror as he is traded and can now move forward. Although the Thunder have dominated this matchup winning 19 straight and owning a 20-5 record against the 76ers, times are very different.
The Thunder no longer have Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, who were responsible for a lot of those wins. Now OKC is led by Josh Giddey who is taking over as the lead guy with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander shelved until after the All Star break. The 76ers have one of the best two-way players in the NBA in Joel Embiid, who is leading the charge and has the 76ers sitting well at 32-22.
The 76ers won the first matchup this year in OKC by a score of 115-103. They will look to sweep the season series for a second straight year send OKC back into the top four of the lottery ping pong balls. Something that OKC would not mind.

Thunder vs 76ers Prediction | NBA Picks
The 76ers come into this game pretty healthy. They’re only missing newly acquired Harden and Milton. Simmons who has been out for the entire year, was just traded for Harden who will not suit up for this game. OKC is very short-handed, missing a lot of their offense in SGA, Muscala, Wiggins and JRE who have contributed well to the offense this year. The defense has slipped and the offense is struggling to find points. Look for the 76ers to cover the spread and move to 33-22 on the year. It is a big spread and people like to steer clear of these lines but OKC is more than willing to lose games and have done so at large margins. The goal remains, build on their foundation and play their young guys as much as possible. The 76ers have championship hopes and now a new superstar in Harden to replace the Simmons saga. They must continue to find consistency as the trade deadline came and they bolstered their team.
