The NBA Playoffs are bringing more excitement as the Philadelphia 76ers will clash with the Brooklyn Nets in game four of the first round playoff series.
Brooklyn won the first game of the series with a score of 103-92 on the road Saturday afternoon. Philadelphia bounced back as they got a 145-123 win in Game 2 on Monday night. And in the 3rd game, the 76ers managed to get the home advantage as they won away at Brooklyn with a score of 131-115.
Philadelphia 76ers Form
The 76ers did not start well in the playoffs as they lost the first game. However, Philadelphia is a strong team this season and they showed that as they won the next two games. Now, the 76ers have home advantage and this game is a great opportunity for them to take a step towards next playoff round. Yet, they face a challenge as they will miss Joel Embiid in this game.
On the offensive side of the game, the 76ers score an average of 126 points per game in the postseason.
On the defensive side of the game, Philadelphia allowed only 116.3 points per game in the games against the Brooklyn.
Brooklyn Nets Form
The Nets started the postseason on a high as they won the first game of the series. However, they were not able to carry that momentum in the next two games as they lost both. This is a good team but it is very reliant on D’Angelo Russell. The 23 years old point guard has been playing well this season. Also, he scored 26 points in game three of this series. Yet, that was not enough for the Nets to avoid a defeat.
On the offensive side of the game, the Nets score an average of 116.3 points per game in the postseason.
On the defensive side of the game, Brooklyn allowed 126 points per game in the games against the Brooklyn.
The Nets won the first game and showed that they have potential. And their presence in the playoffs is not a coincidence. However, the 76ers are the better team. Also, they have very strong firepower this season and I expect more from them. Therefore, take the 76ers in this game.
