Brooklyn Nets: Two keys to coming out on top over Philly

Brooklyn Nets: Two keys to coming out on top over Philly

The 76ers, who were up by 1 at halftime, outscored the Nets 51-23 in the 3rd quarter. Curry shot 8 for 12 from deep to pass Ray Allen (385) for career postseason 3s with 386, had a postseason career-high 15 rebounds, seven assists and the 31st 30-point postseason performance of his career. They have four consecutive wins and in their last game they won on the road against the Sixers in Game 1 with a 111-102 score, beating the odds.

After the disappointing setback, a frustrated Simmons took aim at the dissenting voices. They talk about Jimmy Butler's incredible yet wasted effort and about the cell phone incident with Joel Embiid and Amir Johnson. If the pattern holds it will be hard for all three players to do much this series. He is followed by Joel Embiid with 22 ppg and a team high 15 boards per game. Harris was fouled taking a three and then Russell committed a clear-path foul on him.

The next key is a pretty obvious one, put the ball in D'Angelo Russell's hands.

In just 29 minutes of game time, he led the Nets with 26 points. He remains central to everything the Nets do and capable of finding his own shots.

"I guarantee if we're winning, they're not booing, so that's the way to change it".

It is also true Ben Simmons could help the 76ers a lot more here in game 2. This is not the first time. Philadelphia may have one of the best starting fives in the National Basketball Association, but there's going to be an bad lot of pressure on the starters if the bench gets blown out as badly as in Game 1, when the Nets' reserves had a 59-28 scoring advantage. If you see the Sixers being dominated every game in this series, then leave him off of your team, but I wouldn't make that bet. Four games were scheduled for the first day and three of them didn't end as expected.

"I just looked down because he said his daughter was extremely sick and he was checking on her", Embiid said. Redick if he heats up is the best shooter Philly have. "I'm sure he'll bounce back and play a little better in the next game".

"I don't need to say anything to DeMarcus. So I'm not going to celebrate this victory". I love it. That's how Philly is.

DeMarre Carroll is a less fancy option compared to Caris LeVert but LeVert has a habit of blowing hot and cold.

Here's more from all the games that took place on April 13.

Playoff Jimmy Butler is back. It is unlikely Joel Embiid will improve his stamina that quickly.

The Nets surged back into the game to close out the second quarter, leaving the 76ers with a slim one-point lead despite playing marginally better in the first half than they did at any point in Game 1. While he isn't a fancy option for the game, he is cheap and is guaranteed to get minutes for his defense. The Sixers can't stay in front of him and he's seriously one of the best drivers in the league.

I have a feeling Embiid will be given a rest today. Se he becomes another value pick although at 10.5 Credits its not as cheap as a Dudley, but he is less than half the price of Embiid who even if he plays will be on heavy minutes restriction.
