Embiid has back tightness and an unclear status Saturday against the Thunder.
The Phoenix Suns are playing much more competitive basketball right now.
They have gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall. And while they
had yesterday off, they are facing a Philadelphia 76ers team that will
be playing for a second consecutive day.
Prior to the Suns' homestand, they had gained an ATS edge. That has reversed course as they have lost three straight home games against Western Conference opponents. That doesn’t change Wednesday against the 76ers, who beat the Clippers on Tuesday.
