The 76ers travel to Brooklyn to face the Nets for Games 3 and 4 of their Eastern Conference playoff series at the Barclays Center Thursday night, with 76ers hoping to maintain their winning momentum on Game 3 and Nets aiming to bounce back in front of the home fans.
The Brooklyn Nets started the 2019 NBA Playoffs with a win over the third-seeded Philadelphia 111-102 at the Wells Fargo Center last weekend. The Philadelphia bounced back in style to beat the Nets by 145-123 in Game 2 of their best of seven series Tuesday night.
Sixers had their ups and downs in the opening half of Game 2 in the series, followed by an explosive third quarter in which they outscored the Nets by 28 points and then lost 7 points by the end of the fourth quarter but registered a comfortable win.
Joel Embiid led the Sixers with 23 points and ten rebounds. Tobias Harris contributed 19 points, Ben Simmons added 18 points, and JJ Redick scored 17 points. Spencer Dinwiddie led the Nets with 19 points. D’Angelo Russell scored 16 points, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson added 15 points.
The Brooklyn Nets are in excellent form for the past few weeks, but the club snapped their four-game winning streak with a defeat against Sixers in Game 2. The Nets finished the regular season with a 42-40 record and were placed sixth in the Eastern Conference standings. The team have clinched the final playoffs spot for the first time since 2015 with a win over the Indiana Pacers last weekend.
Philadelphia 76ers are in a decent run and have won three of their last five games. The club finished the regular season with a 51-31 record and were placed third in the NBA Eastern Conference standings.
Both the teams have been in a decent form in recent weeks, and therefore it’s difficult to predict the outcome of this game. We expect a very tight game here so the best bet will be total points in the match.
