Kevin Durant not playing may take a little bit of luster off this game but the Nets’ last outing, maybe put a little bit back on because they completely rolled Utah and home. Maybe Brooklyn will be able to keep their heads above water more so than people would have thought with Kevin Durant’s absence. It wasn’t surprising to see the value in the Nets in that first game without Durant. It’s always the first game without your superstar where teams seem to be able to dig deep and step up. It’s that next outing when they usually come back down to earth.
Where now, maybe not everybody shoots 80 percent from the field as it felt when the Nets were dropping 130 on the Jazz. The only reason we don’t have Sixers tickets in the back pocket yet is that they’re off a back-to-back. Before going nuts on Philly, just make sure Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and any other impact players aren’t being rested in this one. The Sixers are a great pick with their regulars in there against the Nets.
