The two teams that beat them heading to this matchup were the Memphis Grizzlies and the more recent was a five-point loss against the Miami Heat, 96-101.

The Brooklyn Nets sit above the NBA Eastern Conference with their current record of 20-8. This team still owns a two-game lead against the defending champions Milwaukee Bucks. The Nets were able to pick up wins over the Atlanta Hawks, Detroit Pistons and the most recent was an overtime victory over the Toronto Raptors, 131-129. This team will look to hang on as they have six players having COVID-19 and among them are James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge, James Johnson, Jevon Carter, David Bembry and Bruce Brown Jr. Kevin Durant will need to perform at an MVP pace again in order to keep up with the Sixers.
