My final score prediction: Golden State Warriors 120, Philadelphia 76ers 117.
Roll with the over in this one.
Where the game will be won or lost
Will Joel Embiid play for the Sixers on Saturday night?
Well, with or without Embiid, both teams will look different from when they squared off in January wen the 76ers won 113-104 at Golden State.
The 76ers traded for Tobias Harris, who used to play for the Los Angeles Clippers. In his last five games for the Sixers, Harris is averaging 25.8 points and 8.0 rebounds, and he is shooting 59 percent.
He averaged 25.7 points and 8.7 rebounds in three games against the Warriors earlier this season while still playing for the Clippers.
An 11-2 January pushed the Warriors (43-19) to the top of the Western Conference, however, they went just 7-4 in February and they now begin March tied with Denver (42-19) in the loss column.
The 76ers (40-22) finished February with a 6-4 record and now find themselves battling the Indiana Pacers and the Boston Celtics to earn home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The 76ers' earlier win at Golden State ended a 10-game losing streak to the Warriors, and if the Sixers win on Saturday, they would complete the season-series sweep for the first time since 2012.
