While everyone is familiar with Joel Embiid as the marquee man of Philadelphia the Nets also have a budding star. D’Angelo Russell had a breakout season for 2018-19 that has put Brooklyn into the post season. Most important of all the Nets have proven to be a consistent NBA games betting odds value. Balanced against that was the declining value on the board by the 76ers. Especially down the stretch of the regular season. As a result, the playoff series between Brooklyn and Philadelphia could be much closer than the experts think.

Of great concern for the 76ers and their fans is the tender knee of center Joel Embiid. Should the Philadelphia All Star center not be at 100% the Nets could make this a real series. Consider the fact that Brooklyn scored a 111-102 win at Philadelphia in game one. Embiid could only go for 24:15, roughly half of the game. Now that the Nets have home court advantage and Embiid likely less than full throttle gamblers can smell an upset.
Brooklyn’s D’Angelo Russell does not get the same level of attention as Embiid. However, that could very well change in this series. Russell scored 26 points in the game one upset win. In the same way he led the Nets in scoring with 21.1 points to go with 7.0 assists per game. Following lackluster numbers in his first two NBA seasons with the Lakers he has thrived with the Nets.
