Nets vs 76ers Prediction: Last Game Analysis
It was a good chance for both teams to assess the bench strengths of the opposition just 1 week before the all-important playoffs when they met in the last regular season fixture. The 76ers had just one man standing in their way. Cam Thomas fought single-handedly for the Nets which was obviously not enough to avoid a defeat. The 76ers had to utilize their full available strength in the defense to counter Thomas. Most of the starters from both teams were rested ahead of the postseason. Mikal Bridges was the only key member to play from either side but he participated for only four seconds. Despite a matchup of no significant impact, the 76ers made sure to bring out their best.
Cam Thomas finished the game with 46 points. David Duke and Raiquan Gray contributed 31 points together for the Nets.
For Philadelphia, Shake Milton, Mac McClung, and Louis King scored 20 points each. Paul Reed added 17 points with 10 rebounds.
