PHI @ LAL (+6.5) o/u 231

PHI: The big 3 of the Sixers should all be active for this one in a favorable matchup against the Lakers. Embiid was cleared to play and then came up with an illness and missed shootaround, but is still going to suit up. Bolden is out for the Sixers which shouldn’t affect the rotation to much.

Simmons is too pricey for my blood here even in a plus matchup. Embiid though looks like a great play. Zubac is looking fairly skilled offensively, but defense is not one of his strong suits to say the least. Butler is in play here too as his $6900 price tag gives him some upside.

Tier 1: Embiid, Chandler
Tier 2: Butler
Tier 3: Simmons, Shamet

LAL: The Lakers are banged up right now with Lebron and Ball on the sidelines. They did get Rondo back which is a plus as they need a solid ball handler as evidenced by him playing 42 minutes last game. Kuzma is also out for this one so look for Beasley to get the start again.

Beasley is going to be a very chalky play here with Kuzma being ruled out. Zubac moved into the starting lineup last game too, but this is not a good matchup for him. Chandler may be leaned on more for his defensive ability to try and slow down Embiid or at least utilize his 6 fouls. Rondo is hard to pass on with the amount of minutes he could end up playing. With Kuzma out there are also more shots to go around so Ingram so be leaned on here.

Tier 1: Rondo, Beasley, Ingram
Tier 2: Chandler, KCP, McGee (GPP)
Tier 3: Zubac

Good talk and good luck
