Philadelphia 76ers Form
The 76ers won their last game against the Pacers. Also, the 76ers entered Sunday tied for second in the Atlantic Division with Boston, one game behind the Raptors. Additionally, the 76ers are a team that is on the rise this season. Joel Embiid leads Philadelphia with 22.8 points, 12.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game on the year.

The Jazz is a strong defensive team this season. Moreover, they have some good team cohesion and good balance defending the arc. However, they are playing too many games in a short period of time. That is where I see the chance for the 76ers to pick a win in this game.
