Nets-76ers Preview

Automated Insights

The struggling Philadelphia 76ers will try to put an end to their six-game cold streak when they take on the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center. The Nets currently hold an 8-15 record and have not found their stride this season. On the opposite side, the 76ers are still looking for answers and enter the game with a 7-18 record. Contributing to their sub-.500 record has been their play over the last 10 games. They've come up on the losing end during nine of those games. This game is slated to start at 7:30 pm EST and it will be covered by CSN-PHI and YES.

The Nets are expecting better results after their 103-99 loss to the Pistons. Deron Williams was the team's high scorer as he gave a respectable performance, scoring 22 points. Meanwhile, the 76ers are coming off a blowout 139-105 loss to the Trail Blazers. Hollis Thompson accumulated 17 points, as well as 3 rebounds and 2 steals.

It's a matchup of two different tempos, as the up-tempo 76ers (ranked first in the NBA in possessions per game) square off against the grind-it-out Nets (27th).
