At the Buzzer | Embiid Leads Dominant Collective Effort Against Pelicans

With the loss to Philadelphia, the Clippers have played 54 games, with 28 games remaining.

The Los Angeles Clippers look for another victory after winning five of their last six games.

Anthony Davis scored 14 points for the Pelicans, who are 1-5 since losing DeMarcus Cousins to a season-ending torn Achilles two weeks ago.

Simmons had 27 points and 10 assists in Philadelphia's 131-124 loss to New Orleans on December 10 and the former LSU product is a clear-cut favorite to win Rookie of the Year at the end of the season. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 33.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.7 rebounds per game. He has averaged 9.7 points and 9.6 assists in 35 career games versus the 76ers while recording three triple-doubles. The Sixers have won their last two home games against the Knicks.

Embiid totaled 25 points and 13 rebounds in his only two games against the Pelicans, which came in the 2016/17 season. In 32 minutes, Embiid collected twenty-seven points, three assists, 1three rebounds, three blocks and three threes with 1 turnover. For perspective, New Orleans combined for 25 points in the first and third quarters, Dario Saric and Joel Embiid combined for 24 points in the first quarter alone.

For the 22nd time in the last 24 games, Lou Williams scored 20 points or more, finishing tonight's game with 23 points.

The 76ers are 5.5-point favorites for this game, with the line moving down one-half point since its open.

Philadelphia are also 12-3-1 versus the number in their last 16 games against Southwest Division opponents and 3-1-1 in their last five games versus New Orleans. Over the last 10 games, the Pelicans are 3-7 ATS while the over-under is 5-5.

The 76ers are 10-6 when he scores at least 20 points this season. He has averaged 23.7 PTS, 11 REB, 3.3 AST, 0.6 STL and 1.8 BLK with 4.1 TO.

This game features a triangle of intrigue in terms of matchups with Davis pairing off with Embiid, Rondo squaring off with Simmons and Mirotic taking on Saric. Their offense was struggling and the Clippers' defense was everywhere.

On the season, the 6-foot-9 Covington is averaging 13.0 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, while also shooting 41.4 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from behind the arc.

For the Pelicans, it will be incumbent on Mirotic and Jrue Holiday to make perimeter shots to prevent Davis from facing double teams in the low post when Rondo can't make the 45-degree entry pass. Simmons may need to turn Rondo into a penetrator and funnel him into the lane since Embiid can also block shots. Look for Philadelphia to respond positively with a 120-112 victory. For moneyline bets, the line is Philadelphia 76ers: -235, New Orleans Pelicans: 190. Tip-off time is 7 pm EST.
