Saturday, February 6th the Brooklyn Nets will meet the Philadelphia 76ers for the second time this season. In the first match on January 7th, the Nets won 122-109.
Last season, the squads played four times with Philly taking three of the four contests. The 76ers hold the all-time record between the squads with 116 victories in the team’s 201 meetings.
This will be the second game of a back-to-back set for the Nets who lost 117-123 to the Raptors on Friday. It was a bizarre set of circumstances as Kevin Durant was pulled from shootaround due to contact tracing.
He returned in the first quarter only to be yanked in the third quarter and put in quarantine. The NBA has to sift through why he even played if there were conflicting positive and negative tests.
As for the match, the Raptors reminded everyone they aren’t a team who’ll go quietly into the night and will battle through every adversity.
Seven Nets scored in double-figures but the Raptors limited Kyrie Irving and James Harden below their averages. Irving registered 15 points, five rebounds, five assists, and SEVEN turnovers while Harden delivered a double-double of 17 points and 12 assists.
Joe Harris (19), Jeff Green (15), Bruce Brown (13), Landry Shamet (12), and DeAndre Jordan (10) were the other double-figure scorers.
Durant will be out until February 9th in health and safety protocols. Nicolas Claxton (knee) is out until month-end and Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) is out for the season.
Coming off a brutal loss the 76ers will be looking to regain their dominance facing a club many believe could be their greatest challenge to come out of the East.
Despite the Blazers missing Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Derrick Jones Jr., Jusuf Nurkic, Zach Collins, and others the 76ers seemingly got caught up thinking this would be an easy victory. It was their worst performance this season.
Ben Simmons didn’t play due to calf tightness and without his presence on the court, Philly seemed out of rhythm on both ends. He typically initiates the offense and is the cornerstone of the defense.
Joel Embiid delivered with 37 points but most of that (31) came in the first half and he got a scare when he landed awkwardly blocking a shot. The replay showed his leg seemed to hyperextend almost to the side so it was fortunate it wasn’t a bad injury.
Tobias Harris produced a double-double of 12 points and 11 rebounds. Tyrese Maxey (15), Furkan Korkmaz (13), and Shake Milton (12) were the other double-figure contributors.
Philly shot abysmally from the perimeter connecting on only seven of their 27 attempts (25.9 percent). But the truer sign of their lacking effort was the Blazers outrebounded them 53 to 37 while their 18 turnovers produced 27 points for Portland.
The loss ended a four-game win streak for the 76ers. Simmons (calf), Embiid (back), and Curry (illness) will all be game-time decisions.
Mike Scott (knee) and Terrance Ferguson (health and safety) are out.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
Injuries will be the deciding factor in this match as the Nets won’t have Durant but the 76ers could be without a trio of their core (Embiid, Simmons, Curry).
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Nets +8.5
If Embiid plays there isn’t anyone on the Nets who can guard him and the 76ers also have the rest advantage.
