The Portland Trail Blazers will welcome Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers to the Moda Center tonight in a game featuring two of the most likely players to break Wilt Chamberlain’s single-game scoring record: the Philly center, and Damian Lillard. Portland could use a refreshing win after getting drubbed on Tuesday by the Denver Nuggets. The Sixers are 11-9 on the road, 8-2 in their last 10, and aren’t likely to give one up easily. Whose cuisine will reign supreme? Talk about it here!
