The Philadelphia 76ers pay a visit to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse on Monday night. Here’s a 76ers vs Cavs Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

 The Philadelphia 76ers have been in a major slump as they've lost eight of their last 10 games overall, but they will be feeling better after putting a halt to a four-game slide after taking down the Wizards in a 119-113 road win on Saturday. Tyrese Maxey led the team with 28 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, Buddy Hield added 23 points with six assists while Ricky Council chipped in with 19 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 48 percent from the field and eight of 27 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Wizards from the start, setting the tone with 33 points in the first quarter before they made another run in the third quarter to lead by 15 points.

Cleveland Cavaliers

 Meanwhile, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been on an absolute tear as they've won 17 of their last 18 games overall and they will be gunning for a 10th straight win after blowing past the Raptors in a 119-95 road win on Saturday. Jarrett Allen led the team in scoring with 18 points and 15 rebounds on nine of 12 shooting, Evan Mobley added 17 points with 11 rebounds and three assists while Donovan Mitchell chipped in with 15 points and six assists. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 52 percent from the field and 14 of 41 from the 3-point line as they hit the ground running and poured in 67 points in the first half to take a 20-point lead into halftime, allowing them to cruise in the second half and rest their starters early.

76ers vs Cavs Prediction

The 76ers are still shorthanded with Nicolas Batum and Joel Embiid both out, while the Cavaliers are still without Ty Jerome. The 76ers are still mired in their worst slump of the season despite their narrow win over the lowly Wizards on Saturday and they could be in for a tough test here with the Cavaliers running through everybody at the moment. The line is almost at double digits for this one, but I'll back the Cavaliers to get the job done at home in this spot.
