Chris Baker: These groups performed on Wednesday evening and reached 228 factors, however I’m going to take the beneath right here. Taking a look at that recreation, each groups did a very good job of blocking out and limiting second probability alternatives as they each rank beneath the twentieth percentile in offensive rebound fee, in line with Cleansing the Glass.

The sport wasn’t notably quick paced as every workforce had fewer than 95 possessions, nevertheless it managed to go over as each groups shot extraordinarily effectively from the sector: They every shot above 43% from deep and made 16 3-pointers.

The opposite main purpose the sport went over was the entire lack transition protection from Philly. The Sixers allowed 22.8% of the Raptors’ possessions to be in transition and so they allowed 16.4 factors per 100 possessions in transition.

This has been a theme for the 76ers as they at the moment rank dead-last within the NBA defensively in factors per 100 in transition. I feel Sixers head coach Doc Rivers will make this a significant level of emphasis in a recreation the place Philly ought to have extra urgency on account of their gradual 1-4 begin.

Toronto at the moment ranks first within the NBA in transition frequency and factors however they drop to Twenty fourth in factors per 100 when they’re pressured to play within the half-court.

The gradual tempo from final recreation ought to proceed as they groups at the moment rank Twenty ninth and thirtieth in tempo per Dunks And Threes. Going again to the playoffs, the Raptors have performed Philly in eight of their final 13 video games whereas the 76ers have confronted Toronto in eight of their final 19 video games.

These groups must be extraordinarily aware of one another and the sorts of units their opponent desires to run and I count on that familiarity to lead to much less factors on Friday evening. Take the beneath in Toronto on Friday evening.

Indiana Pacers vs. washington wizards

decide Wizards -5

Matt Moore: I make this double digits off Adjusted Energy Score. The short-sample present season numbers are even greater.

The Pacers profile as this nice offensive workforce, however they rank twenty seventh in halfcourt Offensive Score, whereas the Wizards rank second in halfcourt protection. The Wizards’ offense is worse, however the Pacers are twenty eighth in halfcourt offense.

The Wizards permit the Thirteenth-fewest transition alternatives. They pressure you into halfcourt and out-execute you. Damage report is clear. The quantity is brief. I just like the Wizards right here.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves

Tipoff 8 p.m. ET

Andrew O’Connor-Watts: The winless Lakers tackle the new-look Timberwolves in a battle of what could be a playoff preview … if not for such an awful-looking Lakers offense.

The silver-lining for the Lakers, (or ought to I say gold and purple) is that they boast the fourth-best protection within the league (104.0), in line with NBA Superior Stats. And but they nonetheless rank twenty sixth in Web Score.

Nevertheless, the Lakers are lifeless final in Offensive Score (96.9) and rating a whopping 5.3 factors per 100 possessions fewer than their crosstown rivals, the Twenty ninth-ranked Clippers (102.2).

To place it in perspective, the offensive distinction between the Clippers at 29 and the Lakers at 30, is an even bigger hole than the ninth-ranked 76ers (114.0) and the Twenty fourth-ranked Bucks (109.1). Yeah.

Fortunate for us, that mixture of elements could make for some tasty performs on the beneath. In Lakers video games this 12 months, the whole is 3-1 to the beneath, and that one over got here on opening evening towards the fastest-paced workforce within the league — the Golden State Warriors.

Some trigger for concern might be the Lakers’ personal tempo. They rank second within the league at 105.9 and the Wolves aren’t far behind at 103.3, ok for fourth within the league.

Whereas each groups wish to push the tempo, neither will get out in transition notably effectively. The Timberwolves rank Twenty ninth in Pts+/Poss (.1) and Pts/Play in transition (105.3), whereas the Lakers rank twenty fifth in those self same classes, in line with Cleansing The Glass.

The one space during which the Lakers excel offensively within the fastbreak is off of reside rebounds, the place they rank first within the league. The Timberwolves can simply counter any menace the Lakers may pose in these eventualities, as they rank first in their very own proper defending the fastbreak off of reside rebounds.

As of now, each Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook are listed as questionable. I will really feel higher if Davis and Westbrook play — AD for his protection and Westbrook for his lack of capturing — however no matter what occurs it will not preserve me away.

In all 4 conferences final season, the whole went beneath. Since then, the Wolves have added top-of-the-line defensive huge males of the final 20 years in Rudy Gobert, and the Lakers added zero plus-shooters. I like this beneath right down to 225.5.

New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks

decide Knicks +6.5

Matt Moore: I wager this simply after open at +7.5, and grabbed a +7. My numbers make this unfold 5 flat so I feel there’s worth to that time.

There are two angles right here: If the Knicks actually are decent-to-good, the ability ranking for them from the books will not have caught up but, permitting a chance to steal some worth early within the season. New York hasn’t had a very terrible displaying but. They may, ultimately, and it could be right here once they run up towards the primary contender they’ve seen. However they could be underrated by the general energy ranking, and taking part in effectively proper now.

Second, it is a letdown spot for the Bucks. Within the final two seasons, they’re 5-2 straight up and towards the unfold vs. the Nets — who they beat on Wednesday — however they’re simply 2-5 ATS within the following recreation.

The Bucks are additionally overrated by the market at house towards groups throughout the non-division Japanese Convention groups, not less than since buying and selling for Jrue Vacation. The previous two seasons Milwaukee is 10-7 ATS vs. division groups, however towards all different convention opponents, they’re simply 16-21 ATS (43%).
