San Francisco, USA
Saturday, 25 March 2023
Golden State Warriors will lock horns with the Philadelphia 76ers in the National Basketball Association (NBA)
match on March 25.
This will be the 325th meeting between the two teams in regular-season games since the 1949/50 campaign which was the inaugural NBA season.
The 76ers have the upper hand in this rivalry having registered 170 wins compared to the Warriors' 154 victories from 324th matches.
The 76ers defeated the Warriors, 118-106 as James Harden recorded 27 points, five rebounds, and nine assists for the winning side on 17 December 2022.
Therefore, the 76ers improved to 16-12 on the season, while the Warriors fell to 14-16 after a game that took place at the Wells Fargo Center.
What Is At Stake
The Warriors' playoff hopes are very much alive as the defending champions placed sixth on the Western Conference standings having recorded 37 wins and 36 defeats.
While the 76ers are in the race to win the Eastern Conference title as they are placed at the third on the conference standings having registered 48 wins and 23 defeats.
Kevon Looney is one of the Warriors' most influential players having recorded 14 points, 11 rebounds, and a career-high nine assists in the losing effort against the 76ers on December 17.
The 76ers' dangerman is Joel Embiid who led all scorers against the Warriors with 34 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, four steals, and two blocks - his sixth consecutive game with 30+ points.

Embiid is having a great season, as the Cameroon-born star leads the NBA with 33.6 PPG while also averaging 10.3 RPG, 4.1 APG, 1.1 SPG, and 1.8 BPG.
"I'm going to say this one more time, I'm going to try to stay off this subject," 76ers coach Doc Rivers said as he praised Embiid.
"Joel is the Most Valuable Player (MVP). I thought he was the MVP last year. I don't think anyone needs me to campaign for him, I think the proof is in the pudding."
