Lately, the Philadelphia 76ers have struggled as they've been missing several key players, including Joel Embiid, Matisse Thybulle, and Danny Green. While the Sixers have been slowly getting healthier and will have Thybulle in the mix, they'll still be shorthanded on Saturday night against the Portland Trail Blazers
As the Sixers have had a difficult time coming out on top with wins lately, they'll look to keep some of their recent momentum going on Saturday as they are coming off of an impressive win against the Denver Nuggets.
Before Thursday night's victory over Denver, the Sixers were in the midst of a five-game losing streak. Ever since their star center Embiid entered the NBA's health and safety protocol, the Sixers have struggled to close out games.
The road won't get much easier for them as they continue to play away from home for the next three games, including Saturday's throwdown against Portland. Although the Sixers already have a victory over the Blazers this season even without having Embiid in the lineup, the Sixers had a home-court advantage.
This time around, the Blazers get to host the Sixers in their house. This season, the Blazers have been dominant while playing at the Moda Center as they've won all but one of their eight home games this year. Plus, Portland is expected to be at full strength, giving them another advantage over the struggling Sixers.
