The NBA is back in action today as the Brooklyn Nets will clash with the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Nets were in action at home against the Jazz on Tuesday night and they lost the game with a score of 117-109. And on the other side, Philadelphia dropped their second straight game as they lost 101-95 on the road to the Pacers Monday night.
Brooklyn Nets Form
The Nets are heading into this game after a defeat at home in the game against the Jazz.
Moreover, this season they are not playing well even at their home ground. Therefore, the Nets are placed on the 4th in the Atlantic Division with nine games behind the Celtics. As for the Eastern Conference playoff, Brooklyn is on the final playoff spot by 5.5 games over Charlotte, Chicago and Detroit. Their away record is 7-12 on the road this season.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nets score an average of 109.7 points per game. Also, they have an average of 48.9 boards combined with 23.8 assists per night
As for the defence, they are 17th in scoring defence as they concede an average of 111 points per game this year.
Philadelphia 76ers Form
The 76ers are also struggling lately. Moreover, their away form is probably their main problem. Also, the loss in the game against the Pacers just confirmed that fact. Now the 76ers are 3rd in the Atlantic Division, 3.5 games behind the Celtics. As for the Eastern Conference playoff picture, Philadelphia is 6th with 10 games behind the Bucks for the top spot in the standings.
On the offensive side of the game, the 76ers score an average of 109 points per game which is enough for the 21st spot in scoring. Also, they have an average of 46.1 rebounds per contest and they are dishing out 26.3 assists per game. As for the defensive side of the game, the 76ers concede an average 105.7 points per game this season.
Both teams are struggling lately, but it seems that the Nets are in a worse position.
The 76ers also catch a Brooklyn team playing the second game of a back to back and their third game in four nights here. Also, the 76ers are strong at home. Therefore, I expect a win for Philadelphia.
