The Sixers are 5-2 SU and 3-4 ATS since acquiring Tobias Harris, Boban Marjanovic and Mike Scott from the Los Angeles Clippers for Wilson Chandler, Mike Muscala, Landry Shamet and four draft picks. Harris gives Philly another proven scorer, and Marjanovic is a quality center in short bursts, but the big man is on the shelf right now with a sprained right knee. Fellow center Joel Embiid is also day-to-day with a sore left knee.
Golden State have some depth issues at center, too. DeMarcus Cousins has played well since making his season debut on January 18, but Damion Jones remains out indefinitely with a torn pec, and Jordan Bell has been dealing with flu-like symptoms. After going 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their first five games with Cousins in the lineup, the Warriors are struggling to cover at 7-4 SU and 2-9 ATS, including Wednesday’s 126-125 loss to the Miami Heat as 10-point road favorites.
