NBA Bets Playoff Edition – Monday April 15 – Brooklyn Again
After a shocking outcome in the first game where the guests made a break, we have Game 2 between the third-seeded in the East Philadelphia 76ers (51-51), who have won only twice in their last seven games, are hosting once again the sixth-seeded Brooklyn Nets (42-40), who are leading the series 1-0 wins and are looking to extend their current winning streak.
The Brookyln Nets secured a 111-102 victory against the Philadelphia 76ers in the National Basketball Association play-offs.
Still, Philly is a -208 favourite on the Sports Interaction series line entering Monday's Game 2, with Brooklyn at +150. "I'll go study the film and see how I can find my teammates better to tell you the truth".
Both teams are in this position after what unfolded in Brooklyn's 111-102 win on Saturday afternoon.
D'Angelo Russell was huge in his playoff debut with the Nets, scoring 26 points. Caris LaVert added 23 points in 23 minutes off the bench for the Nets.
"Joel's minute restriction was challenging", Sixers coach Brett Brown said during his pregame remarks Monday. "You're afraid with this crowd and the team they have that they're going to knock you out of the box quick". That's big progress for us. "I don't want to get emotional", he said following the surprise victory in Philadelphia. Jimmy Butler stepped up with a playoff career-high 36 points but was about the only bright spot. "To negate JJ, that was getting him in foul trouble".
Embiid's health is a key storyline for the Sixers. Nets veterans Ed Davis (sprained right ankle) and Jared Dudley (tight right calf) are being listed as questionable, though Davis said he expected to play after finishing with 12 points and 16 rebounds in the opener. It's like every missed shot, you get booed so you get the next one and it's kind of like, 'should I shoot it or should I not because I'm about to get booed?' I don't know.
Depth turned out to be a significant difference in Game 1. Nets center Jarrett Allen, who has become famous for blocking dunk attempts from star players, blocked an attempt by Harris at the rim. They played very well throughout the season and ended up with the 2 best record in the tough Western Conference.
Make no mistake, Brooklyn to make it back-to-back wins is going to be no mean trick, now especially when the Sixers know only too well not to underestimate them again.
Led by general manager Rob Pelinka, the Lakers are set to interview former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue, Philadelphia 76ers assistant coach Monty Williams, and Miami Heat assistant coach Juwan Howard.
