The San Antonio Spurs and the Philadelphia 76ers duke it out at the Wells Fargo Center on Monday night. Here’s a Spurs vs 76ers Prediction.

San Antonio Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs have been in a real slump as they've lost nine of their last 12 games overall, but they will be hoping to build some momentum now after sneaking past the Wizards in a 131-127 road win on Saturday. Victor Wembenyama led the team with 24 points, eight rebounds and six blocks, Jeremy Sochan added 23 points on eight of 11 shooting while Devin Vassell chipped in with 21 points and five assists. As a team, the Spurs shot 53 percent from the field and 12 of 31 from the 3-point line as they caught fire early and exploded for 72 points in the first half, but the Spurs trailed by 12 points in the fourth quarter before they closed the final 4:43 on a 22-6 run to finish with the much-needed comeback victory. The Spurs are 8-34 for the year, and only the Washington Wizards (7-35) and Detroit Pistons (4-38) have worse records in the NBA.

San Antonio Spurs Player Facts

  • Victor Wembanyama ranks 1st amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (3.1) this season.
  • Devin Vassell ranks T21st amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.3) this season.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been heating up again recently as they are now gunning for a sixth straight win after outlasting the lowly Hornets in a 97-89 road win on Saturday. Joel Embiid led the team with 33 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, Tobias Harris added 21 points with six assists while Tyrese Maxey chipped in with 16 points and eight assists. As a team, the 76ers shot just 42 percent from the field and five of 25 from the 3-point line as they struggled to make open shots and they couldn't really gain separation until the fourth quarter where they held the Hornets to just 16 points to escape with the narrow win. It was fortunate that Embiid was able to play and have a big game because the 76ers got just 13 points from their bench players and Maxey shot just one of nine from the 3-point line in this game.

Philadelphia 76ers Player Facts

  • Joel Embiid ranks 1st amongst qualified players for points per game (35.1) this season.
  • Tobias Harris ranks 8th amongst qualified players for FT% (90.2%) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for steals per game this season (9.1).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.3).
  • The Spurs rank 30th in the league for Q3 win percentage this season (24.4%).
  • The Spurs rank 29th in the league for opponent rebounds per game this season (46.8).

Spurs vs 76ers Prediction

The Spurs could be shorthanded again with Zach Collins listed as questionable, while the 76ers are keeping eyes on Jaden Springer, Mo Bamba and De'Anthony Melton who are all questionable. The Spurs have been one of the coldest teams in the league all season, but they are coming into this one fresh off a rare comeback win, so they will be quietly confident here. However, while the 76ers were far from convincing in their win over the lowly Hornets on Saturday, they are still one of the hottest teams in the league with a five-game win streak. The line is hefty for this one, but I'm not sold on the Spurs' recent success, so I'm going with the 76ers to stay hot with another win and cover at home.
