The Brooklyn Nets are one of the worst teams in the NBA again this year. With no signs of ever making a strong playoff run, a run for respect over the next few years seems impossible. The Philadelphia 76ers were in the same situation the Brooklyn Nets are in the past several seasons. Now the 76ers are headed to the playoffs.
The last time the Nets and 76ers took the court against each other was March 16th. The 76ers got the win, 120-116.
The Brooklyn Nets are a team that is in full tank mode. If you asked a random person on the street to name a player from the Nets roster, 90 percent wouldn’t know one players name. The Nets are 2-3 over their last five games, and recent took a tough loss to the Detroit Pistons, 108-96.
The loss was nothing new for the Nets. The team has been out of playoff contention for the past several months, and had no intentions of making a run this year. The way the team was put together this season, was something like a rec league roster
The Nets are led by D’Angelo Russell this season. He leads the team in points, scoring a little over 15 points per game. Russell is a number two scorer at best on any other NBA team. Spencer Dinwiddie seems to be the teams most rounded player.
Aside from Dinwiddie, the team has nothing else to offer other than second and third option role players on the roster. The defense is nothing to brag about either. Brooklyn is allowing 110.5 points per game this season.
The Nets defense ranks 28th in points allowed per game this year. Nearly dead last in the NBA this season.
The Philadelphia 76ers are in the playoffs. Just last season, the team was the laughing stock of the NBA, now they are in the Eastern Conference playoffs, and have tow of the pest young players in the NBA starting for them. Ben Simmons has been one of the big reasons why the team is headed to the postseason this year.
Simmons is averaging 15.8 points, 8 rebounds, and 8.2 assists per game this year as a rookie. His staggering numbers have him sitting as the front runner for league rookie of the year. Joel Embiid has also played light’s out. He was voted to his first All Star game this season. With the way they both have been playing, the 76ers are going to be a tough out in round one.
Defensively, the 76ers are allowing 105.2 points per game this year. That ranks the 76ers 13th in points allowed per game this year. If the 76ers defense can continue to get better, Philadelphia can surprise more people than anticipated this year.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
The Brooklyn Nets don’t care about winning games. They want the best chance at getting the best pick in the draft, which means to lose out. Look for Brooklyn to get it handed tp them in Philadelphia.
The 76ers worst enemy in this game is going to be themselves. If they are unable to stay foucused, or come out of the gate sputtering, Philadelphia could have a problem covering. Overall, they should be fine against Brooklyn.
