NBA Regular Season

Tip-off at 01:00 CAT

The Philadelphia 76ers will take aim at the Los Angeles Clippers when the teams meet in an NBA Regular Season game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on the morning of Saturday 17 April 2021. Tip-off is at 01:00 CAT.

The 76ers have risen to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference and will be hoping to lay down a marker of consistency and intent as the Playoffs approach. One man who will be key to their ambitions is Joel Embiid, who racked up an impressive 27 points and nine rebounds in a recent 117-93 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

"When it comes to the MVP stuff, I feel like I'm still right there," said Embiid. "When I'm on the floor, I feel like I've been the best all season, just doing my thing, just dominating with the help of my teammates and the coaches putting me in the right positions to succeed."

Forward Mike Scott added, “The great thing about the NBA... there's a lot of games, back-to-back, quick turnarounds. You learn from your mistakes and you keep moving.”

The Clippers, meanwhile, have put together a solid season to be placed in the upper region of the Western Conference table thus far, though are a little off the standard set by the likes of the Utah Jazz and Phoenix Suns.

Nonetheless, the Los Angeles team has been in fine form of late, demonstrating their potency with a 131-124 win over the Detroit Pistons. "The team is coming together. You feel it and the last thing we want to do is not leave a stone unturned. I definitely think there will be some carryover on the road," the Clippers’ Paul George said.
