The Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers meet Saturday in NBA action at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Brooklyn Nets look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Brooklyn Nets are averaging 122.3 points on 50.1 percent shooting and allowing 117.8 points on 45.7 percent shooting. Kevin Durant is averaging 30.8 points and 5.2 assists while Kyrie Irving is averaging 28.3 points and 4.8 rebounds. James Harden is the third double-digit scorer and Joe Harris is dishing 2.1 assists. The Brooklyn Nets are shooting 40.1 percent from beyond the arc and 81.9 percent from the free throw line. The Brooklyn Nets are allowing 35.8 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.4 rebounds per game.
The Philadelphia 76ers look for a win after winning nine of their last 12 games. The Philadelphia 76ers are averaging 113.7 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 110.2 points on 44.6 percent shooting. Joel Embiid is averaging 29.1 points and 10.8 rebounds while Tobias Harris is averaging 20.2 points and 2.9 assists. Shake Milton is the third double-digit scorer and Seth Curry is dishing 2.6 assists. The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 36 percent from beyond the arc and 76.8 percent from the free throw line. The Philadelphia 76ers are allowing 36.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.3 rebounds per game.
The Nets are 8-21 ATS in their last 29 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The 76ers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 20-8 in Nets last 28 overall. The over is 7-2 in 76ers last 9 overall. The Nets are 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings in Philadelphia and 2-7 ATS in the last 9 meetings.
The Brooklyn Nets are still a talented, capable team, but this is a tough spot for them on the end of a back to back and without Durant. The Philadelphia 76ers are rested and have been one of the hotter teams in the league these last few weeks, which includes winning at home by an average of 5.3 points while shooting 49.3 percent from the field. It feels like this should be a statement game for the 76ers as well with the Nets getting all the media attention. I'll lay the bucket with the 76ers.
