Brooklyn Nets preview
The Brooklyn Nets played close to their best lineup against the Milwaukee Bucks, and both of their A-listers showed up that day, with Kevin Durant and James Harden getting some good minutes under their belt.
However, head coach Steve Nash will be concerned that the margin of victory was only four points, even though the Nets starters played against the Bucks reserves.
Nash will be looking to give his fringe and rookie players more minutes Monday, which could lead to a tricky business. Defense has been a major problem for the Brooklyn Nets in the ‘Big 3’ era, and the franchise will look to resolve it before the new season begins.
Philadelphia 76ers preview
The Philadelphia 76ers have been the subject of a lot of media attention, mainly due to the Ben Simmons business drama.
However, it was clear in his last game that Doc Rivers does not want his team to be affected by these reports, as the 76ers put in a solid showing to dispatch the Raptors.
Seth Curry had a productive outing with 15 points, and Rivers and the Philadelphia 76ers management will be keeping an eye out for Isaiah Joe and Georges Niang this season, who posted 15 and 16 points, respectively.
The 76ers enter the game against the Brooklyn Nets as the losers, but they possess the ability to narrowly conjure a victory.
Nets vs 76ers match prediction
The outcome of the game will likely depend on the type of side the two coaches have, but it’s safe to say that the Brooklyn Nets possess enough firepower to outmaneuver a team like the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Brooklyn Nets’ offense is the best in the league by some distance, and they should have no problem taking care of business against Joel Embiid and company.
