Sun 9th April 2023

The Brooklyn Nets (45-36, 23-17 Home) play host to the Philadelphia 76ers (53-28, 24-16 Away) Sunday in what should be a slow-paced game. Philadelphia beat the Atlanta Hawks 136-131 in overtime at State Farm Arena on Friday. Jalen McDaniels led the way with 24 points and 11 rebounds.

The 76ers are third in the Eastern Conference. Brooklyn found victory on Friday at Barclays Center, beating the Orlando Magic 101-84. Mikal Bridges tallied 22 points to lead the team in scoring. With 14 points and 15 rebounds, Nic Claxton also played a part. The Nets are the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. The teams are meeting for the last time this season.

Philadelphia will be looking for a season sweep against Brooklyn after taking each of their three previous matchups, the last of which was a 101-98 victory at Barclays Center on February 11, their third straight head-to-head victory. Joel Embiid led the 76ers with 37 points and 13 rebounds.

Bridges had 23 points in the losing effort. The Sixers have been led this season by Embiid, who is averaging 33.1 points per game, best in the league. Embiid also has grabbed 10.2 rebounds per game, seventh-most in the NBA.

Meanwhile, James Harden is dishing 10.7 assists. Claxton’s 12.6 points per game have powered the Nets on offense. Claxton also has averaged 9.2 rebounds per game. Royce O’Neale has recorded 3.7 assists per game.

Half-court execution will be critical in this matchup that features two of the league’s slowest-paced teams, as the 76ers and the Nets rank 28th and 26th, respectively, in possessions per game. The 76ers have found success in recent trips to Barclays Center, winning six of the last 10.

In the last 10 games, Philadelphia is 5-5 with an average margin of -2.7 (112.1-114.8). Brooklyn has gone 6-4 over the last 10, scoring 114.2 points per game on average while allowing 108.0 (+6.2 margin).
