BKY -1.5, O/U 219.5

The Philadelphia 76ers travel to Brooklyn, NY on Monday for a game against the Nets in a matchup of teams from the Atlantic Division in the Eastern Conference.  In their last game, the 76ers were victorious against the New York Knicks by the score of 90-87.  Ben Simmons led the 76ers in points as he scored 21 on the night while shooting 9 of 15 from the field and 3 of 8 from the free throw line.  Simmons also led Philadelphia in assists on the night with 8 while playing a total of 40 minutes.  Tobias Harris led the 76ers in rebounds with 8 on the night, all coming defensively. 

With the win against New York, the 76ers are 28-16 on the season, which places them in 3rd place in the Atlantic Division.  Joel Embiid is the 76ers leader in points per game with 23.4 and in rebounds per game with 12.3.  Ben Simmons leads Philadelphia in assists per game and is averaging 8.4 on the season.  Philadelphia comes into Monday’s game with 1 player listed on their injury report as Joel Embiid is listed as out. 

The Brooklyn Nets welcome the Philadelphia 76ers to town on Monday after losing their last game to the Milwaukee Bucks by the score of 117-97.  Kyrie Irving led the Nets in points in the game against the Bucks, scoring 17 while shooting 6 of 15 from the field and 3 of 3 from the free throw line.  Irving also led the Nets in assists as he recorded 6 while playing 31 minutes on the night.  Jarrett Allen was the Nets leading rebounder in the game as he recorded 10 boards, including 1 offensively. 

With the loss against Milwaukee, the Brooklyn Nets are now 18-23 on the season, which places them in 4th place in the Atlantic Division.  On the year Spencer Dinwiddie leads the Nets in points per game with 21.8 and in assist per game with 6.4. DeAndre Jordan leads the Nets in rebounds per game with an average of 9.7.  The Nets enter Monday’s game with 4 players listed on their injury report as DeAndre Jordan and Garrett Temple are listed as out while Joe Harris and Rodions Kurucs are out. 

The Philadelphia 76ers have scored an average of 108.5 points per game this season while allowing 104.9 points per game.  The Brooklyn Nets have scored 109.2 points per game while allowing 111.5 points per game on the year.  In their last 5 games, the 76ers are 3-2 and have won 3 games in a row while the Nets are 2-3 and have lost 3 games in a row.  This will be the third meeting of the year between these two teams as the Nets won in Brooklyn by the score of 109-89 and the 76ers won in Philadelphia by the score of 117-106.  The 76ers have won 7 of the last 10 meetings against the Nets and have won by the average score of 119.20-113.40.  I look for that trend to continue in this one and for the 76ers to come out of this game with a win.  Philadelphia wins 115-110 and beats the spread.
