New Jersey Nets to win ?
Losers of two straight, the 76ers look to improve on their last performance against the winless Nets as the Atlantic Division rivals meet Wednesday night. Philadelphia hasn’t won since a 97-94 victory over New Jersey (0-7) on Friday night. The Nets have been outscored by an average of 11.9 points, but the 76ers needed a clutch effort from Andre Iguodala down the stretch.
The Nets aren’t going to go winless for the season and getting a bundle of points vs a team below .500 on the season is reflective of that. The Sixers aren’t exactly an emerging powerhouse and remember their sole road win on the season went into OT against the Knicks. This team won 17 on the road all of last year, three of those took OT and eight others were by six or less. That leaves six wins in the last year on the road that would have beaten this number, which is way too high.
Guard Courtney Lee sat out with a strained left groin, but he could return to face Philadelphia. Lee, in his second season, is averaging 11.8 points. Nets get the call. Our free NBA tip for the night is :
