Nets at 76ers preview: How to watch, TV channel, start time

The Brooklyn Nets (19-28, 11th in the Eastern Conference) visit Wells Fargo Center on Saturday to face the Philadelphia 76ers (30-17, fifth) and if you’re wondering how you can watch all the action live, you’ve come to the right place!

The Nets enter this contest following a 136-120 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday in Kevin Durant’s return to Barclays Center for the first time since he was traded by Brooklyn at last season’s trade deadline. Guard Ben Simmons missed Wednesday’s loss due to a left knee contusion, but he should be able available to play in this matchup.

The 76ers come into this game after a 127-124 win at the Utah Jazz on Thursday in which guard Tyrese Maxey put up 51 points on just 27 field-goal attempts. Philadelphia superstar center Joel Embiid will not be playing in this matchup due to a left knee injury so Brooklyn will not have to worry about matching up with him this time around.

Here’s when and where you should tune in:
