Sixers vs Nets Game 4 Playoff Pick, 4-20-2019


Philadelphia 76ers (53-32) vs Brooklyn Nets (43-42)

Saturday, April 20, 2019, 3:00 PM EST

Line: Nets +3, O/U 223

Featured Matchup by Peter Trell


The Philadelphia 76ers look to take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Brooklyn Nets in Game 4 from the Barclays Center on Saturday night.  The Nets fell behind early and had trouble defending the Sixers starting five which scored a combined 116 points in Game 3 led by Ben Simmons (31 pts, 9 asts, and 4 rebounds).  The Sixers may be once again without Embiid in Game 4 but are the Sixers still worth a look as -3 point favorites on the road?


Philadelphia has put the Game 1 loss in the rearview mirror and is playing like a different team after scoring 145 and 131 points over the last two games.  The Sixers didn’t miss Joel Embiid in Game 3 and his status for Game 4 is questionable. Looking at this from the Sixers standpoint, they may opt to give Embiid rest now to save his legs for the next round if they advance.  Each player has stepped up including Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris who was held to four points in Game 1 but has rebounded to produce 48 points over the last two games.


It’s gut check time in Brooklyn and the Nets will need to figure out how to slow down the Sixers offensive pace. The Sixers scored 16 fastbreak points compared to the Nets 8 in Game 3. Brooklyn has been out hustled, out rebounded and outworked over the last two games and now their backs are up against the wall after losing two straight.  Guards D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert scored 26 points apiece for the Nets in Game 3 but they could not keep up with the Sixers' scoring depth.


Trends aside, Philadelphia has switched into Playoff mode and the Nets appear overmatched.  After watching the Sixers score a combined 276 points in two games is alarming and it doesn’t look like the Nets have the personnel to stop the relentless attack.  I don’t see these last two games as a fluke and Philadelphia is simply the better team. The Sixers are 2-0 ATS the last two games and I believe that trend continues in Game 4 as the Sixers easily cover the -3 point spread.
