Brooklyn Nets Vs Philadelphia 76ers Betting Odds and Prediction: Recent Form
The Brooklyn Nets didn’t have the best of the starts in the 2021 season. They lost to Giannis and the Bucks. Even though Kevin Durant and James Harden played for proper minutes in this bout but still they were overpowered by the Greek Freak. Nets lost 127-104.
The Nets looked lost in the 2nd half as they had no answers for the Bucks. Rumors surrounding All-star point guard Kyrie Irving bothers the Nets organization, his unwillingness to follow the Covid-protocols leaves the Nets in a dicey situation. Obviously, Kyrie costs a lot, his missing games not only affect their performance but the money that he is being paid to play goes down the drain.
Will Kyrie Irving be removed from Brooklyn? Is he going to retire from the sport? The rumors have it and it really is an issue that needs to resolve.
The Philadelphia 76ers started their season campaign with a convincing win against the New Orleans Pelicans 117-97. It was a team effort as 6 players scored in double digits. It was a star-studded performance by Joel Embiid who managed to get 22 points, 5 assists 7 rebounds, and Tobias Harris who managed to get a double-double 20 points, 2 assists, 12 rebounds. It was a center-dominated game as Embiid was accompanied by Andre Drummond, who was recently signed by the 76ers. Drummond grabbed 17 rebounds in the game.
The issue regarding Ben Simmons continues to grow, he was suspended in the last game by 76ers Head Coach Doc Rivers. His rebellion against the team also continues. This creates a negative environment and harms the team’s morale. Simmons is over-expecting in the caliber, he was one of the worst players in the playoffs and he is one of the reasons for the 76ers’ exit in the 2020 playoffs.
