The 76ers and the Nets were the top two teams in the East last season, although the former faced a COVID outbreak and Ben Simmons resisted. Joel Embiid continues to be an anchor for Philly as he hopes to move up the Eastern standings. The Nets have welcomed Kyrie Irving to the squad, but he is still unable to play for at least a week due to his unvaccinated status. Kevin Durant and LaMarcus Aldridge are expected to be back in this contest for Brooklyn.
This is a rematch of Tuesday’s game, which the Nuggets won 89-86. Stephen Curry is having a spectacular season and begins to receive help with Jordan Poole being clear of protocols. There’s a chance Draymond Green will be cleared as well. The Nuggets are hopeful things around Nikola Jokic remain stable, although that doesn’t seem likely. Aaron Gordon and Monte Morris are questionable for this contest for Denver.
