Brooklyn Nets upset Philadelphia 76ers in play-off opener

16 April 2019

They're the most-profitable team in the National Basketball Association in both spots.

Not home for the summer. During the post-game press conference, Curry gave a "shout out to the contacts" for his wonderful accuracy from super-long-range.

The 6 seeded Brooklyn Nets met the star studded Philadelphia 76ers and had a dominating performance. They have lost two of their last three matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Nets in Game 1 with a 102-111 score, not beating the odds. Things couldn't have gone much worse for the Sixers, who couldn't quiet Brooklyn's guards or their own fans.

Some teams are getting 2 days rest in between games 1 and 2. "We're ready for the challenge". The Clippers made it competitive early, but it was only a matter of time before Stephen Curry would take over. Above all of that, he showed confidence in taking the big shots that the Spurs will need him to continue taking this series.

D'Angelo Russell scored 26 points to lead Brooklyn to the victory. Game 2, 8 p.m. EDT, TNT. They're not going to beat the elites in the Western Conference but beating a team with a listless offense in a defensive series is right up their alley.

KEEP AN EYE ON: The benches. Then when the Nets used Jared Dudley at center, Embiid became frustrated at the physicality and picked up a technical foul in the first quarter.

PRESSURE IS ON: Simmons. Caris LaVert added 23 points in 23 minutes off the bench for the Nets.

"The only negative of the game for the Warriors came when Kevin Durant was ejected along with the Clippers" Patrick Beverley after picking up his second technical foul. The favoured exact result is 76ers in seven games at +230.

"Nah, I can control myself", Durant said, unconcerned. "Hell, I want to see us win, too", Butler said. "Everybody knows what Pat brings to the table and the type of competitor that he is". "I'll go study the film and see how I can find my teammates better to tell you the truth". "I don't think about that stuff". Those were the franchise's most in a playoff game since 2002. Star point guard Ben Simmons had a terrible 9 points and 3 assists in 32 minutes. He returned January 18 against the Clippers after a almost yearlong absence recovering from a torn left Achilles tendon that required surgery while he was with New Orleans. I say, who could actually care?

"We just look at it, we have nothing to lose", he said (h/t Stefan Bondy, Daily News).

Jimmy Butler was Philadelphia's best player in the opener.
