This will be the second meeting this season between the two teams. The Warriors lead 1-0 in their season series against the Sixers with a 116-96 win in their first clash. Stephen Curry and his brother Seth produced 25 and 24-point outings, respectively, producing an enticing sibling duel.
Steph will be in the limelight once again, as he will have the opportunity to break Ray Allen’s 3-point record in a game that will also feature his brother. He needs ten more threes to achieve the milestone.

Golden State Warriors
With no injuries reported to any of their regular starters, the Golden State Warriors are expected to stick to their preferred lineup again in this clash. Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole should pair up on the backcourt as usual, with Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green and Kevon Looney handling the business up front.
Otto Porter Jr., Nemanja Bjelica and Juan Toscano-Anderson have played key minutes off the bench over the last few games. They are likely to continue that in this clash as well.
The Philadelphia 76ers are also likely to deploy their regular starting lineup, with Tyrese Maxey and Seth Curry as guards, Danny Green and Tobias Harris as forwards and Joel Embiid at the five.
Andre Drummond, Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkman will likely play the most minutes among their reserves.
