Saturday, November 13, 2021: 6:00 pm CT: Philadelphia 76ers at Indiana Pacers Predictions
The NBA kicks off another week of basketball with the Golden State Warriors in control of the Western Conference. They have to keep the pace up, though, as the Utah Jazz is right on their trail.
The Warriors aren’t the only team doing well in the West, though; the Dallas Mavericks are red hot too. Although it’s early in the season, each of these teams is fighting for positioning.
In the Eastern Conference, there’s only one team better than the Miami Heat. The Philadelphia 76ers have a slight lead in the conference, but Miami is following closely. Both the 76ers and Heat will face some tough competition this week.
We could see the top spots in the Eastern Conference shuffle by the time the week ends. Let’s take a look at some of this week’s games.
The Philadelphia 76ers are trying to keep a stronghold on the Eastern Conference. This week they’ll face some tough teams but start the weekend against the Indiana Pacers.
Playing the Pacers is going to be a relief for the 76ers, who have the 8th ranked offense. They are also one of the best teams against the Moneyline and the spread.
Unfortunately for the Pacers, the season hasn’t gone according to plan. They sit at the bottom of the Eastern Conference but could get some players back this week.
If they do, they stand a much better chance against Philadelphia, who’s dealing with a lot of injuries. It might be a surprising pick, but the Pacers are a great pick in this one.
