The Philadelphia Sixers return to the Arena anew on Tuesday, Jan. 17, looking to take down another Los Angeles team the LA Clippers.

The Sixers are coming off a close 113-112 win over the Los Angeles Lakers and were led no less by the deadly duo of Joel Embiid and James Harden.

Embiid led the Sixers with a double-double performance of 35 points and 11 boards. Harden also finished with a double-double, dropping 24 points along with 13 assists. “The Beard” also had 7 caroms across his name.

Despite their effort, head coach Doc Rivers was far from satisfied with his team’s performance.

“Wasn't one of our better games, especially defensively,” 76ers coach Doc Rivers said. “We had no pace. We were tired. As a coach, you're saying, ‘Let’s just get to the fourth quarter and see if we can win it.'"

On the other end, the Clippers are looking to follow up their 121-100 win over the Houston Rockets.

The Clips will continue to miss the services of Paul George. Also out for this matchup are John Wall and Luke Kennard.

Hence, Los Angeles will bank on Kawhi Leonard to lead the charge together with Terrance Mann.

Mann led the way with 31 points, six rebounds and four assists. Leonard added 30 points of his own aside from hauling down six rebounds, four assists and two steals.

“Nobody could get stops. Everybody was moving slow and that might have been because it was an early game,” Mann said. “Whichever team was going to play defense first was going to win.”

The Sixers are -0.5 favorites to prevail over the Clippers who are at +0.5. The Moneyline for this game is -115 for Philadelphia and -108 for Los Angeles.

The Clippers host the Sixers at the Arena with tip-off set for 10:00 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised via TNT with live streaming available via NBA League Pass.
