Although Brooklyn has shown impressive improvement since Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving left, they may encounter trouble against the Philadelphia 76ers. Philadelphia boasts a highly talented roster that features Joel Embiid (NBA scoring leader) and James Harden (assist leader), both of who dominated regular season action as top scorers and assist-getters, respectively; these two alone outshone any other member on Brooklyn’s roster.
The Philadelphia 76ers demonstrated their superiority by defeating Brooklyn by an average margin of 11.3 points during regular season play Embiid will be too much for the Nets.
