The Philadelphia 76ers travel to the Barclays Center to battle the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Here’s a 76ers vs Nets Prediction.

Philadelphia 76ers

The Philadelphia 76ers are starting to get back on track again as they've won three of their last five games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the Mavericks in a 120-116 road win on Sunday. Tobias Harris led the team with 28 points on 11 of 19 shooting, Tyrese Maxey added 24 points while Kelly Oubre Jr chipped in with 21 points, five rebounds and four assists off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 45 percent from the field and 11 of 37 from the 3-point line as they poured in 34 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 18 points, before they held off a late rally from the Mavericks who exploded for 40 points in the fourth quarter.

Brooklyn Nets

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in decent shape as they've won three of their last five games, but they will be hoping to bounce back here after coming up just short to the depleted Grizzlies in a 106-102 loss last night. Nicolas Claxton led the team with 21 points on eight of 10 shooting, Cameron Johnson added 18 points while Mikal Bridges chipped in with 14 points and five assists. As a team, the Nets shot 44 percent from the field and 15 of 42 from the 3-point line as they wrestled with the Grizzlies in a deadlocked contest, until the fourth quarter where they went scoreless during a 4:14 stretch to allow the Grizzlies to slip away. The Nets will meet the Pistons after this one.

  • The 76ers rank 1st in the league for opponent steals per game this season (6.1).

76ers vs Nets Prediction

The 76ers are still missing some key players with Joel Embiid still out and Cameron Payne listed as questionable with an illness, while the Nets have ruled out Cam Thomas and Ben Simmons once again. The 76ers are starting to move on from their worst stretch of the season and they would've taken plenty of confidence from their win over the Mavericks on Sunday. The Nets were able to earn three wins in four games before last night's demoralizing loss to the severely shorthanded Grizzlies, but I still don't trust them and am not surprised that they're underdogs at home. The 76ers are playing well below their best, but they should still have more than enough to get past this inconsistent Nets team playing on zero days' rest.
