Well, whatever transpires, New Orleans is catching a break as Joel Embiid is out for tonight’s contest. Despite fielding one of the most fearsome starting lineups in the league, Embiid is Philly’s most pivotal player. Without his services in their last matchup, the Trail Blazers ripped through the 76ers defense with ease, scoring 130 points.
Brett Brown has decided to fill this hole with Jonah Bolden, not Boban Marjanovic, in the starting lineup. Obviously, the Pelicans will be concerned with Ben Simmons, JJ Redick, Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, who are all liable to go off for 20+ points.
Most likely, expect a high-scoring fest!
