Philadelphia 76ers vs Brooklyn Nets – NBA: Tonight, the Sixers host the Brooklyn Nets
at their arena, in what will be another important game for the Sixers on the fight for the play-off spots.
The Sixers are on the play-off qualification zone and they won’t certainly leave that zone but the team from Philadelphia can still climb even more on the standings and even have the advantage of playing the 1st round at home, which is certainly one of this team’s objectives.
On the other side will be the Nets that have nothing to lose or to gain at this stage of the season.
The team from New York is one of the worst in the league but to them, not even tanking is a solution, since they’ve traded away all of their draft picks.
The Sixers are currently in 6th place of the Eastern Conference with 37 wins against the 30 losses gotten so far. At home, they have 20 victories and 11 losses, being one of the most effective teams at home in the East.
The Sixers are coming off a tough win last win at the Madison Square Garden in New York, where they’ve beaten the Knicks by 110-118. For this game, they will still have to play without the number 1 draft pick of the season Fultz and the Turkish player Korkmaz.
The Nets are one of the worst teams in the NBA and they have been proving that, sitting on the bottom 3 positions of the Eastern Conference. \
The team from Brooklyn has been quite unlucky because they have been losing a lot of matches by minimal margins and in case they had won those matches, we could be talking about a team on a much better position here.
The Nets have a 21-47 record in the league and on the road, they have a 9-24 record. For this encounter, Jeremy Lin is still absent while Crabbe is still in doubt.

The Sixers have won 2 of the 3 matches between these two teams this season, all of them at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The Sixers have a great chance here to cement their play-off spot and I believe that will happen, with the team winning comfortably.
