Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers, NBA East Conference game. Another game with advantage for the 76ers at home. Today the home team is expected to be a favorite against the Nets, especially after Kyrie Irving’s health announcement. The Nets will probably lose Irving related to the same shoulder problem. The 76ers are dominant at home, but away from home the story is another.
Brooklyn Nets: Trying till the end.
The Nets know that the season could be ruined if Irving does not return. The injury that is affecting the star game, is the same that kept him away from the court during the first 26 games of the season. The record on the road is negative with 9-16 so far. Three victories in the last twelve games on the road.
The team is scoring an average of 109.7 points on the road, 39.60 FG points, 77.2% free throws, 12.60 three pointers, 47.72 rebounds, 23.88 assists, 13.44 turnovers.
The defense allows up to 113.6 points per game, 42.40 FG points, 74.5% free throws, 12.04 three pointers, 48.84 rebounds, 22.24 assists, 11.72 turnovers. In the second half the team allows up to 57.6 points.
Maybe next season is the big one for the Nets when Durant and Irving are 100% healthy to play. For now, the active leader in points is Spencer Dinwiddie with 21 points. He is the only player who is averaging over twenty points. Caris LeVert 15.3, Joe Harris 13.8, Waller-Prince 12.4.
