76ers Look to Bounce Back Against Suns

The Philadelphia 76ers took a tough loss to Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors Monday night, 107-96. They are back at home for the fourth and final game of the homestand against the Pheonix Suns. Earlier in the season, the Suns got the better of the Sixers by a score of 120-111.

Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris are both day-to-day nursing injuries. Both of those players have been huge losses for the Sixers and having them in the lineup is a must for Philly. Embiid is also listed a questionable.

Former Sixer, Dario Saric, is also day-to-day with an ankle injury.

Joel Embiid will have to continue his pure dominance, especially if the Sixers are without two key pieces. Embiid had 35 points in 36 minutes in a loss last time against Pheonix.

For the Sixers, 3-point shooters such as Seth Curry, Danny Green, and Furkan Korkmaz will have to make an impact on the game. When these two teams faced off on February 13th, Pheonix had the edge when it came to shooting from behind the arc.

Devin Booker has been a 76ers killer the last couple of seasons. Booker had 36 points in 34 minutes last time these two squads matched up against each other. Stopping him will be no easy task, especially if Ben Simmons is ruled out.

A player that will need to step up for the Sixers tonight will be Shake Milton. He has been in a shooting slump as of late and his scoring presence off the bench has been a major factor in the success of Philadelphia this season.

Coming into this game, the Suns are 41-16 (2nd in West), 76ers are 39-18 (1st in East)
