The Philadelphia 76ers travel to Cleveland to face the Cavaliers on NBA Primetime – watch live on Sky Sports Arena (Red Button) on Sunday night at 8.30pm.
As the new home of the NBA in the UK, Sky Sports are showing more than 170 live games across the season, including 42 in the weekend primetime slots.
That slate continues this weekend on Sunday…
Philadelphia 76ers @ Cleveland Cavaliers, Sky Sports Arena (Red Button), Sunday at 8:30pm
Eastern Conference strugglers the Cleveland Cavaliers bid to get their season back on track when they host Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers.
LeBron James’ summer move to the Los Angeles Lakers immediately put the Cavs into rebuild mode this year. They are currently without All-Star forward Kevin Love who is out until January with a toe injury. As a consequence, the losses have piled up. They currently sit 13th in the East with a miserable 7-21 record.
One bright spot for Cleveland with this has been the plays of rookie point Collin Sexton. Selected eighth in the 2018 Draft, Sexton has already shown the ability to score heavily and consistently at the NBA level and appears to be a foundation piece as the Cavs overhaul their roster.
The Philadelphia 76ers will be licking their chops at the prospect of facing this young Cavaliers team.
Flying high in third place in the Eastern Conference with a 19-10 record, the Sixers are legitimate title contenders and in MVP candidate Embiid, Jimmy Butler and Ben Simmons possess a trio of All-Stars capable of making this game extremely tough for Cleveland.
