2012-2013 Game 14 Preview: Thunder Take on Defensive-Minded 76ers

Tipoff time. - Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

The Sixers are a middle-class team that has struggled against weaker matchups. However, they do have some solid wins to their name, and they're a very solid defensive team that doesn't foul and controls the ball extremely well.

Yeah, it's almost time for tipoff, but I figured I'd throw up a preview for posterity's sake. J.A. and I have been pretty tied up over the holiday weekend, but there will be full post-game coverage following tonight's contest, along with a breakdown of the Boston loss.

Anyway, the Sixers are a middle-class team that has struggled against weaker matchups. However, they do have some solid wins to their name, and they're a very solid defensive team that doesn't foul and controls the ball extremely well. It's definitely a tough test for the Thunder, but if they could shut down one or two of Philly's scorers, this could be an easy game. In other words, this one is another tossup, but I'm predicting the Thunder to win because I'm slightly bitter after last night's loss.

Prediction: Oklahoma City Thunder 95, Philadelphia 76ers 89.
