I would bet on nets spread every game this season. Sixers might cover if they hit a bunch of those open threes and nets miss (they shot 41% g1 from 3), but don't think Sixers are the much superior team here..much better talent yes on paperIf 76ers are that bad, how come they had success and a good record this season? (and especially at home where they are playing today)
Down 0-1 with backs against the wall I have a heavy lean on 76ers.
I didn't say they were bad lol. winning the game straight up and covering a 8.5 point spread are two different things.
nets are better coached, Sixers are turnover prone, have terrible shot selection and aside from reddick, have either no shooting or streaky three point shooting. they have more talent no doubt, but it's clear to me their chemistry is off, and if gimpy embiid cant abuse nets small ball line up, this will be a close game.
