- The Sixers have the monumental task of trying to get back on track without the help of Joel Embiid, and against the best player in the world

- The Sixers bench has been lackluster as of recent, they are more than likely going to need to step up big if the Sixers are going to have a shot tonight

- The Cavaliers 13 game win streak was snapped Friday night in Indiana in a 106-102 defeat

- New Sixer Trevor Booker will be suiting up for the first time since being traded to Philly
