The Philadelphia 76ers have been the dominant team in their division this season, going 6-2 against their Atlantic counterparts. However, the Nets won by 20 the last time these two teams played in December, a game that did not featured big man Joel Embiid.
Embiid will sit out this matchup tonight, while Kyrie Irving will be on the court for his third game after missing weeks with a shoulder injury. Are the Sixers primed for another loss at the hands of the Nets?
