Game preview Nets vs 76ers

Brooklyn Nets (45-37) will face the Philadelphia 76ers (54-28) in the first round of NBA playoffs – these teams played in the first round in 2019 with the 76ers winning in five games.

Philadelphia 76ersCan the Sixers dominance over the Nets continue?

Philadelphia currently sports a 54-28 record this season and is responsible for 20.4 personal fouls per contest, shooting an impressive 83% from the free throw line and contributing 25.2 assists per game (16th in NBA). They lose possession via turnover 13.7 times each game while scoring 9,448 points (115.2 per contest), collecting 40.9 rebounds each night, connecting on 48.7% from field shots (6th place in NBA), while accounting for over 94448 total points scored this year (15.2 per game).

Philadelphia’s defense is giving up 34.84% on shots from beyond the arc (952 of 2,735) while their opponents are hitting 78.1 per cent of their foul shots, ranking them 6th overall and 2nd among NBA teams in converting. Philadelphia allows 24.2 assists per game and 41.2 rebounds per game to opponents; these stats rank 6th and 2nd among all NBA teams. They allow an average of 110.9 points allowed per contest from their opponents and force 14.3 turnovers each game (13th best among all NBA teams).

Brooklyn NetsCan the Nets pull the upset?

Brooklyn comes into this one with a mark of 45-37 for the year. They are losing possession via turnover 13.7 times per contest and, as a team are committing 21.1 fouls per contest. As a team, Brooklyn is grabbing 40.5 rebounds per game and has racked up 2,093 dimes this season, which ranks 13th in basketball in terms of passing the ball. The Nets are hitting 37.8% on shots from 3-point land (1,048 out of 2,771) and 80.0% from the free-throw line. They average 113.4 points per outing (20th in the league) while connecting on 48.7% from the field.

When they are on defense, the Nets can force 13.7 turnovers per contest while drawing 18.5 personal fouls. They relinquish 36.7% on three-point shots and they are 10th in the NBA in points per game allowed (112.5). The Nets defensively allow an opponent shooting percentage of 46.3% (3,360 of 7,257), conceding 45.1 rebounds per contest as a team. They rank 4th in basketball, giving up assists with 1,916 surrendered this year.

Our Betting Pick for Today – Bet the Sixers -8.5

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.
