The Philadelphia 76ers and the Indiana Pacers collide at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse on Thursday night. Here's a 76ers vs Pacers Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers have been on fire as they are now aiming for a seventh straight victory after blowing past the lowly Spurs in a 133-123 win on Monday. Joel Embiid led the team with a career-high 70 points with 18 rebounds and five assists on 24 of 41 shooting, Tyrese Maxey added 18 points with eight assists while Tobias Harris chipped in with 14 points and six assists. As a team, the 76ers shot 49 percent from the field and five of 20 from the 3-point line as they kept the Spurs in check early to take the lead into halftime, before they exploded for 42 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 19 points. The Sixers will meet the Nuggets, Trail Blazers, and Warriors after this one.

Philadelphia 76ers Player Facts

  • Joel Embiid ranks 1st amongst qualified players for points per game (36.1) this season.
  • Tyrese Maxey ranks 8th amongst qualified players for assist:turnover ratio (4.2) this season.

Indiana Pacers

Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers have been in a real funk as they've lost five of their last six games overall and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after getting beaten by the Nuggets in a 114-109 loss on Tuesday. Myles Turner led the team with 22 points, TJ McConnell added 17 points with seven assists off the bench while Pascal Siakam tallied 16 points with 10 rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Pacers shot 49 percent from the field and five of 21 from the 3-point line as they hit the ground running to take an early 13-point lead, but it all went to waste in the third quarter where they got outscored by 39-19.

  • Myles Turner ranks 4th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for Blocks Per Game (1.9) this season.

  • The Pacers rank 1st in the league for assists per game this season (30.9).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for steals per game this season (9.0).
  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.1).

76ers vs Pacers Prediction

The 76ers could be shorthanded here with Tobias Harris listed as questionable, while the Pacers have ruled out Tyrese Haliburton and they have Jalen Smith listed as questionable. I'm expecting a close contest here, but even though the 76ers could be without Harris, they still have more than enough firepower to outlast this struggling Pacers team still missing their best player.
