Oklahoma City continues its East coast road trip as the team heads to Philadelphia.
The Oklahoma City Thunder continue their road trip out East as they travel to take on the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night. For the Thunder, this will be the second part of back-to-back games after losing to the Celtics on Friday.
The 76ers last played on Wednesday, when they lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers, 92-83, and those two days of rest for the 76ers could be the difference in this game.
So far in this early NBA season, the 76ers are 7-5, but they allow a NBA-worst 90 points per game and are 28th in the league in scoring at 89 points per contest. The Thunder could have a big scoring night as they are second in the league in points per game with 103, so despite playing two games in as many nights, Oklahoma City has a good chance of winning.
Despite the lack of overall scoring for the 76ers, they do have five players who score in double figures per game. One of the players the Thunder need to watch out for the most is Jrue Holiday, who averages 18.4 points and 8.6 assists per game. Evan Turner, who averages 11.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game, is also a threat.
