76ers reach end of taxing road trip, face NBA-best Warriors

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers have a chance to complete a.500 road trip without Joel Embiid when they visit the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night in San Francisco.

If they’re going to win for a third time on their six-game trip, it’s going to have to come against a relatively healthy Warriors club that has won four in a row overall and their last eight straight at home en route to the best record in the league at 15-2.

The 76ers expect Embiid back as soon as Saturday, when they open a two-game homestand against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

76ers coach Doc Rivers only had this to say: “The fact that he’s out working again is huge.”

It’s possible Harris, Curry and Green also will be held back until Saturday, but all three are listed as questionable versus the Warriors. Thompson returned to Warriors practice as a full participant Tuesday for the first time since June 2019.

Even without Thompson, the Warriors have featured one of the NBA’s best offenses this season, ranking in the top five in scoring, assists, field-goal percentage and 3-point field goal percentage.
