Who's Playing

Philadelphia @ New Orleans

What to Know

The Philadelphia 76ers and the New Orleans Pelicans will face off at 8 p.m. ET October 20th at Smoothie King Center to kick off their 2021 seasons. Philadelphia is coming off of a 49-23 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Atlanta Hawks 103-96 in game seven. On the other hand, New Orleans missed the playoffs altogether last season and is looking forward to a clean start.

Two numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The 76ers were fourth best in fouls drawn per game, finishing the 2020-2021 season with 21 on average. But the Pelicans were even better: they ranked second in the league in fouls drawn per game, closing the year with 21.3 on average. Be prepared to get familiar with the officiating crew.

The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two. We'll see if the game is as close as the oddsmakers expect or if one of these teams has a surprise blowout in them.
