Thursday, January 7th finds the Philadelphia 76ers playing the Brooklyn Nets for the first time in the 2020-21 campaign. This could be a preview of the Eastern Conference Finals.
Last season, the squads played four times with the 76ers winning three of four contests. The 76ers hold the all-time record winning 116 of the 200 matches.
While the Nets have fallen back to earth after storming out of the gate the 76ers have a single loss through eight matches.
In their most recent contest, Philly withstood the Wizards’ offensive assault and 60 points from Bradley Beal to win 141-136.
All five starters registered double-digit scores with Joel Embiid leading the way with 38 points while Ben Simmons delivered a double-double of 17 points and 12 assists. Seth Curry (28), Tobias Harris (19), Danny Green (15), and reserve Shake Milton added 19 off the bench.
Despite the victory, Embiid noted in his postgame interview no one should be able to drop 60 points on his squad.
Although the big man got out to a slow start he was stellar from the second frame on and pivotal to ensuring the 76ers’ league-leading seventh victory.
Mike Scott missed the last three games with a left knee contusion and is questionable to play Thursday. Furkan Korkmaz (groin) is out indefinitely.
To start the season the Nets burst onto the NBA hardcourt looking like an offensive juggernaut easily dispatching the Warriors and Celtics both by 26 and 28 points respectively.
Since then the Nets are 2-4 and have shown they aren’t invincible. Spencer Dinwiddie has been lost for the season and with the losses, the depth of Brooklyn and their defensive shortcomings became more obvious.
Steve Nash is now having to navigate his early days as head coach with the prospect of not having Kevin Durant at least for a few games given he came into contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
In the first game since that occurred, Kyrie Irving stepped up to ensure his squad got into the win column with a big effort versus the Jazz leading his squad with 29 points, five assists, and six rebounds.
Jarrett Allen chipped in with a huge double-double of 19 points and 18 rebounds. Reserves Caris Levert scored 24 while Joe Harris added 10 points as the other double-figure contributors.
Kevin Durant has entered quarantine and will undergo the NBA health and safety protocols making his presence in the game uncertain. Rodions Kurucs (ankle) is questionable.
Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) out for the season while Nicolas Claxton (knee) has no definitive return date.

4* Free NBA Betting Pick: 76ers ATS
Durant’s availability will be key, but this match will come down to whether the 76ers’ defense can out trump the Nets’ offense. It’s telling the oddsmakers are giving the nod to Philly despite Brooklyn having the rest advantage.
