Before the game, a Nets fan not happy with perceived slights from Ben […] PLAYER GRADES: Philadelphia 76ers 131, Brooklyn Nets 115 - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers-Nets Recap: no Embiid? No problem, 3 Sixers crack 25 points for first time since ‘78

Sixers-Nets Recap: no Embiid? No problem, 3 Sixers crack 25 points for first time since ‘78

It’s always sunny in downtown Brooklyn... even around 10:00 PM on a Thursday. Sixers fans endured some tough news before tip off. Superstar center Joel Embiid was declared out after being a game time decision and it was revealed that his knee didn’t make progress after a couple of days off following the game 2 victory. That was a bit of a bummer. I started to wonder if the Sixers were going to “play for game 4” and mail this one in. But I, like some people in the Brooklyn area ... underestimated Ben Simmons: “Missing: Ben Simmons jump shot” hanging outside of Barclays...

Turns out the Sixers like playing the heels Postseason Bell Ringer RecipientsGame 1: Jimmy ButlerGame 2: Ben Simmons Sixers fans learned just prior to Game 3’s tip-off that Philadelphia would be without star center Joel Embiid.

Game 3: 76ers regain series lead at 2-1 following 131-115 win in Brooklyn

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Even with Joel Embiid out, the Nets couldn’t snag the win. Even after being laughed at on the podium after Game Two, the Nets weren’t nearly physical enough to stop Philadelphia. And even with the home crowd having their back, the Nets laid an egg at home and lost Game Three, 131-115, Thursday night at Barclays Center. They now trail 2-1 in the series and Philly has regained home court advantage. “Ben Simmons is a great player in transition. And once you get him into halfcourt, he’s average,” Jared Dudley infamously said at Brooklyn’s practice Wednesday....
