NBA Regular Season
Venue – Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia
BKN vs PHI Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
It’s a battle between two Eastern Conference teams as Philadelphia 76ers host Brooklyn Nets in a regular season NBA match at Wells Fargo Center Philadelphia, in Philadelphia, on Friday morning (IST).
Five teams have qualified for the playoffs from the Eastern Conference with Philadelphia 76ers amongst those teams. Coming into this match they are 3rd in the table with a 47-27 record in the regular season.
Sixers are on the up. Intelligent recruitment and the timely emergence of Joel Embiid has helped this stuttering franchise to the new lofty heights.
The three-time NBA champions not only boast an MVP calibre player in Embiid, but the inclusion of Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler has made Sixers a “Super-Team”.
Talking about the form, the Sixers lost their last game 119-98 against Orlando Magic. You could just feel that Embiid and Co. didn’t hit their top gear in that match after Magic rolled them over, forcing to commit 15 turnovers in the match.
Orlando are certainly flying at the moment, extending their winning streak to six games, but still, Sixers’ submission was unexpected.
Philadelphia remains 3rd in the table and should lock this position.
Brooklyn Nets, on the other hand, are coming into this match on the back of a 148-144 loss to Portland Trail Blazers.
As the scoreline suggests, the match went right to the wire with two over-time coming needed to separate the sides.
There was a lot riding on that match. Portland needed a win to secure a playoff berth, while Nets required to bolster their own stakes.
Nets may be in 6th but their position is far from secure. The 9th placed Orlando Magic are only 1.5 games away from them.
Regular Season Record-
Philadelphia 76ers: W-47, L-27
Brooklyn Nets: W-38, L-37
Players to watch out for:
Joel Embiid –Sixers’ best player this season is Joel Embiid. His career was ravaged by injuries but now he is back to his full fitness. He is stacking up 27.3 points per game and 13.7 rebounds per game this season.
Tobias Harris – Joined the team in the mid-season and already looks home at Philadelphia 76ers. The 26-year-old Small Forward is racking up 20.4 points per game this season.
D’Angelo Russell – The only player on Brooklyn Nets’ roster who is averaging in the 20s this season. But in the last 5 games, he has been phenomenal, scoring 155 points. In the last match against Portland Trail Blazers, the 23-year-old nearly had a triple-double as he dropped 39 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists.
Spencer Dinwiddie – A player in form. The 25-year-old is averaging almost 20 points per game in the last 10 matches. His career average is just 11, so he has definitely upped his game by some margin.
