Sixers-Cavs: Game 5 Preview

 By Darien May, Sports Talk Philly Writer  

Tonight the Sixers (0-4) take on the Cavaliers (4-0), it's safe to say they have a tough hill to climb in tonight's match-up. The 76ers are indeed 0-4 but not every game has been a blowout and they have competed fairly well for the most part. They have no quit in them and I expect to see the same thing from them in tonight's match-up. 

The 76ers are coming off a pretty lack luster showing against the the Charlotte Hornets in their last match-up and look to make up for that tonight. With Joel Embiid back into tonight's lineup look for the 76ers to come out with much more life this time around. Tonight we also celebrate the organizations 50th year anniversary and will be dawning a special throwback jersey/short combo for occasion.

The champion Cleveland Cavilers are nothing to scoff at and will be a heck of a match-up for our young team but this team is a different team when Joel Embiid suits up and that fire that he brings to the game is the equalizer we should be hoping to see in this match-up. We will see a 24 minute restriction for both Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid, might see another attempt at an on court pairing against Cleveland's big men as well.
