The Sixers escaped a loss against the New York Knicks in their last game. Ben Simmons carried the team with 21 points, eight assists and seven rebounds while Josh Richardson chipped in 18 points. Tobias Harris had 15 points and eight rebounds and Furkan Korkmaz stepped up from the bench with 16 points. Al Horford has been filling in with the injured Joel Embiid and he only had 4 points in the game along with seven rebounds and four assists. The Sixers had a good acid test without Embiid but they need to find answers while he is out. The Nets are weak inside with DeAndre Jordan playing limited minutes. Horford is expected to provide more in this match.

Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Nets are coming from a loss against Milwaukee Bucks. Kyrie Irving looks like he is still shaking off some rust as he finished with 17 points, six assists, four steals on a six-for-fifteen shooting. Spencer Dinwiddie also had a bad game shooting only 25% from the field as he had 11 points. Taurean Prince also didn’t shoot well but he managed to finish with 13 points while Jarret Allen scored only five points but he made it up with ten boards. The team got a lift form the bench from Nicholas Claxton who had 14 points and six rebounds and Timothe Luwalu-Cabarrot chipping in with 10. With the return of Kyrie Irving, this team will run with him and he should dictate the tempo.
