76ers Look To Build On 20-2 Home RecordThe Philadelphia 76ers play host to the Golden State Warriors at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday evening. The 76ers (30-17) have won seven of their last 10 games, including a home win over the Lakers in their most recent contest. The 76ers have won seven straight games at home and look to keep building on their 21-2 home record. The 76ers are averaging 108.4 points per game, but they are holding their opponents to an average of 104.8 points per game, which is second fewest in the league. They average 8.4 steals per game, which is fifth most in the league, and they average 26.2 assists per game, which is fourth most in the league. Joel Embiid (finger) is questionable for action on Tuesday, while it would be a huge boost for Philly to have its leading scorer and rebounder back in the lineup. Ben Simmons has been playing well, averaging 21.1 points, 9.9 rebounds, 7.9 assists and 2.2 steals per game, over the last 10 games. Tobias Harris is averaging 19.7 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game, over the last 10 games. Meanwhile, the Warriors (10-37) have dropped nine of their last 10 games, including the last three in a row. This marks their first game of a five-game road trip, as they look to build on their league-worst 3-20 road record. The Warriors average 105.7 points per game, which is sixth fewest in the league, while they are giving up an average of 114.2 points against. They are shooting a league-low 42.9 percent from the field, including 33.8 percent from long range, which is fifth lowest in the league. D'Angelo Russell has been solid lately, averaging 27.0 points, 7.6 assists per game, over the last five games. Alec Burks is averaging 15.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 4.1 assists, over the last 10 games.
