This will be the second meeting of these two teams this season. The Warriors lead 1-0 in their season series against the Sixers with a 116-96 win in their first clash. Stephen Curry and his brother Seth scored 25 and 24 points, respectively, creating an enticing duel of siblings.
Steph will be in the spotlight again as he will have a chance to break Ray Allen’s 3-point record in a game in which his brother will also play. He needs ten more threes to reach the turning point.

With no injuries reported to any of their regular starters, the Golden State Warriors are expected to stay back in their preferred lineup in this clash. Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole should pair up in the backfield as usual, and Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney will lead the business ahead.
Otto Porter Jr., Nemanja Bjelica and Juan Tuscany-Anderson played key minutes from the bench in the last few games. This is likely to continue in this clash.

Andre Drummond, Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkman are likely to play the most minutes among their reserves.
