On Tuesday, Philadelphia will face off against Cleveland in the second leg of a back-to-back. Both the starting lineup and intensity are expected to be high due to a tournament-style game. The following night, Philadelphia will visit Minnesota with possible roster limitations due to fatigue as Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris may receive rest. Minnesota has had a strong start to the season and have the second-best defensive ratings and 48.7% field goal accuracy. It is likely the Timberwolves will be victorious and cover the spread in the home game.
