The Philadelphia 76ers are hoping to close out the series against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night.

Nets hoping to keep their playoff aspirations alive

In their first trip to the playoffs in a few years, the Nets have seemingly fallen to the verge of elimination from the postseason after dropping their last three straight games following a win in Game 1. This has seemingly seen the 76ers take full command of the series with them taking both games in Brooklyn that have put things in this predicament. The Nets have dug themselves into a deep hole being in a rough spot with their young core group struggling to break through against the 76ers. Although Brooklyn is currently fourth in the playoffs with 114.3 points per contest, they have struggled to shoot with any sort of offensive efficiency being 11th shooting 42.9 percent from the floor while also being tied for 11th shooting 33.1 percent from 3-point range. Their lack of efficiency scoring has put them in this tough spot on the floor. This has played a major part in their shortcoming pitting them on the verge of playoff elimination.

The Nets have been relying on the offensive production from their young core group to lead the way. All-Star point guard D’Angelo Russell has been at the forefront of it all. Russell is currently averaging a team-best 22.3 points per contest but has struggled with his offensive efficiency in the process shooting 39.1 percent from the floor and 35.5 percent from beyond the arc in the process. His production has been a steadying factor, but the lack of efficiency has contributed to the Nets inability to keep up with the 76ers in the process. Meanwhile, guard Caris LeVert has stepped up as he’s averaging 21.8 points on 49.2 percent shooting from the floor and 47.8 percent shooting from beyond the arc. This has a huge part of giving the Nets some sort of essence of having an offense. However, if they hope to have a chance surpass Philadelphia, it will need them to step it up collective on Tuesday night.

76ers hoping to close out series

The 76ers have raced out to a commanding control of their series over the Nets over the first four contests. Following a discouraging outing in Game 1 of the matchup, Philadelphia has grabbed three consecutive wins that have put them on the verge of moving to the second round of the playoffs for the second straight year. This has largely been led by the strong collective play of their offense that has been among the most productive in the playoffs up through this point currently ranking second with 122.5 points while being third shooting 48.9 percent shooting from the field. Their offensive production has been key to them being in the position of securing a trip to the second round of the playoffs, This has largely been led the strong offensive production from their core group in the process led by the play from All-Star big man Joel Embiid as the Nets have yet to have a response against him as he has been their primary offensive factor.

Embiid has been playing at less than 100 percent but he has been able to continue to be a major thorn in the side of the Nets. He has been a huge factor on both ends of the floor that has paced the 76ers to this promising spot in the series. in three games played, Embiid is averaging 25.3 points, 13.7 rebounds, and 3.7 blocks per game while shooting 51.0 percent from the field. This has seen him notch a double-double in each contest while scoring more than 20 points in each game. With an opportunity to close out the series on their home floor, Embiid should once again be a factor in helping push Philadelphia to a series-closing win. Forward Tobias Harris has also played well averaging 19.0 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 4.3 assists while shooting 47.5 percent from the floor and 50.0 percent from beyond the arc. He has notched more than twice and reached double-digit scoring three times. With the 76ers playing well offensively, it should see them put together a strong offensive outing to close it out on their home floor.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

In the last three games, the Nets have not been able to slow down the 76ers’ offense. This should remain the case on their home floor where they have a chance to close out the series. Keep in mind, Brooklyn is 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings against Philadelphia.

Prediction: Philadelphia -8.5

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

The one constant in this series has been scoring on both sides with each offense pour in strong performances. This will remain the case in Game 5 with plenty on the line on both sides that will see the star power show out. The over is also 5-2 in the last seven meetings between both sides.

Prediction: Over 229.5
