Philly hosts battle between Nets, 76ers

Date Posted: 08 March 2013     0 Comments

On Tuesday, March 12 at 7am, the Brooklyn Nets will continue their mission of rising in the Eastern Conference Standings when they play the Philadelphia 76ers at the Wells Fargo Center in downtown Philly.

For the Nets, it’s been a whirlwind of events this season. They started off with their highly commercialized move from New Jersey to Brooklyn that was shortly followed by the firing of their initial coach Avery Johnson. With new interim coach - PJ Carlesimo - handling the reigns of the team, the Nets have somewhat revived their run in gaining one of the top four spots in the East.

Deron Williams has been playing great basketball since the All-Star break, with averages of 22 points and nine assists a game. Williams has been clutch for the Nets in critical parts of the game, while at the same time keeping everybody in the team involved by moving the ball and going away from isolation plays that doomed the Nets early in the season.

The 76ers, on the other hand, are still trying to gain some ground, clinging on to a slim chance that they can make a late run for the final seed in the playoffs. However, with recent reports that Andrew Bynum may officially be done for the year, the light of hope may be fading away for Philadelphia.

With the Nets already having beaten the 76ers twice this year and due to Philadelphia’s recent lackluster play, Brooklyn will be entering Philadelphia with momentum and expecting that they will once again make their opponents suffer another loss.
