Brooklyn Nets at Philadelphia 76ers Betting Pick and Prediction

"His experience from the playoffs previous year - you want to improve from that and you want to show all the fans all the work he definitely has put in".

The Philadelphia 76ers try to bounce back from a Game 1 loss against the lower-seeded Brooklyn Nets Monday when Game 2 tips off from Wells Fargo Center at 8 p.m.

Their one-point halftime lead grew into a 29-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter - a lead that they would not surrender.

The NBA playoffs started on Saturday as the Brooklyn Nets, Orlando Magic, San Antonio Spurs, and Golden State Warriors defeated their opponents to take the Game 1 lead. However, their Game 1 performance is a big concern. Philly obviously needs him on the floor, but this series has the potential to go beyond five games, so the Sixers need to play it smart with him as well.

On Sunday, Simmons said he understood that Philadelphia fans can be more critical than most, and he wouldn't have it any other way, taking it as a sign of how much they care. After an excellent take and finish on Jarrett Allen, Simmons raised his arms up, urging the crowd to get louder.

Philadelphia also matched the 1962 Los Angeles Lakers for the most points scored in a quarter in a playoff game. D'Lo had 26 points with 4 assists and 3 rebounds, Spencer Dinwiddie was on fire from the deep scoring 18 points with 1 assist and 3 rebounds, Caris LeVert scored 23 off the bench and Ed Davis was as active as ever on the offensive end pulling in 16 rebounds in total to go with 12 points and 2 assists. "Like I said before, earlier in the season, we just wouldn't have the composure to close a game like that out". He didn't attempt a field goal in his first seven minutes of action.

So, everyone is upset right now because Joel Embiid and Amir Johnson were caught looking at a cell phone while getting blown out at home. Even with an achy knee, he can shows signs of sheer brilliance.

Raptors coach Dwayne Casey's decision to keep defensive stalwart Serge Ibaka on the bench during the final Magic possession left many analysts scratching their head as he would've been much better at closing out on D.J. Augustin than slower and older Marc Gasol.

He started the second half with a personal 7-0 run and had 13 points in the third. The longer he was out there, the stronger, more comfortable, more confident he played.

Redick has been in these situations before. Embiid was a last minute call to play in the previous game and he looked unsure, which is unlike him. He finished with 36 points, 9 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks on 50% shooting. The quicker they get back on the court the better for them.

"But the fact that it's after every single miss, when shots aren't going to fall".

However, one of the most important players on Brooklyn's bench was power forward and center Ed Davis, a veteran journeyman who continues to churn out productive outings for his fifth National Basketball Association team.
