Tuesday night will feature in season tournament action in the NBA as these two Eastern Conference teams face off in a hybrid, regular season and tournament game. Both of these teams were playoff teams last season and both of them have aspirations of being a playoff team this season as well. However, they are off to different starts to the regular season through the first thirteen games of the year. Cleveland and Philadelphia will meet for the first time this season in this tournament group play matchup in this game will go a long way in the outcome of their tournament group as well as would be a massive momentum boosting victory for both teams in the process.
The Cleveland Cavaliers come into this game after building a little bit of momentum throughout the weekend. They picked up a victory over the defending NBA champions even without their superstar Donovan Mitchell in the lineup on Sunday. Cleveland came into this season with high expectations of being one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference after being upset in the opening round of the playoffs by the New York Knicks last year. However, they have experienced a very slow start to the season, and that has not been the case for Cleveland throughout the early part of the year.
They will be looking to start stringing some victories together to get the momentum rolling in the right direction throughout the remainder of November and into the month of December as well as they look to finish the calendar year off on a strong note. Cleveland comes into this game, hovering around .500 and it is unknown if they will have Donovan Mitchell back in the lineup for this game against Philadelphia on Tuesday night as they look to pick up a solid early season marquee victory against one of the top teams in the league. They have picked up seven victories in their first 13 games of the regular season and they will be looking to grab their eighth victory of the season here on Tuesday night on the road and Philadelphia against the 76ers.

The Philadelphia 76ers are off to a fantastic start to the regular season, and they will be looking to keep the momentum rolling here on Tuesday night at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers. They are red hot to open up the year, even without James Harden on the roster and after all the drama surrounding this team coming into the season, they have found a way to still string together victories on a consistent basis. They will be looking to continue doing so with another quality performance here on Tuesday night at home in this tournament game against Cleveland as they look too further establish themselves as one of the top teams in the league this season.
Last season’s most valuable player award winner Joel Embiid is off to another fantastic start this season, and his play has helped lead the Philadelphia 76ers to an incredible start to the year. He comes into this game averaging around 32 points per game on the season and he will be looking to further maintain that points per game with another quality game here in this one on Tuesday. His points per game, not the leading score for the Philadelphia 76ers, but also makes him the leading score in the league this season as well, and he will be looking to further add to that with a huge performance against Cleveland on Tuesday night.
Betting trends to consider in this matchup:
- Philadelphia is 6-2 at home this season
- Cleveland is 2-4 after a win this season
- Philadelphia is 8-1 after a win this season
With Donovan Mitchell being a question mark for this game for the Cleveland Cavaliers, I look for the Philadelphia 76ers to come away with the victory here on Tuesday night at home. The Cleveland Cavaliers don’t have much going for them the majority of the time when Donovan Mitchell misses the game and despite getting lucky and grabbing a victory over Denver and their previous game I do not expect lightning to strike twice for Cleveland here in this one. I look for Cleveland to remain competitive throughout the early part of this game but by the time the final whistle comes around I look for Philadelphia to pick up a comfortable victory over the Cavaliers at home in this tournament game on Tuesday night.As always, get our VIP Pick Free Tonight by Clicking Here!
