The Philadelphia 76ers backups just beat the Hawks starters on Friday. The Brooklyn Nets aren't going to play anybody with their playoff spot with the 76ers locked up. A battle of the backups, give me the points with the Philadelphia 76ers, a team that just beat another team's starters a couple of days ago.
