NETS GAME NIGHT – #Sixers @ #Nets – Nets Need This Division Win

Updated: December 23, 2012


Philadelphia Sixers (13-14) @ Brooklyn Nets (13-12)

Barclays Center 3:00


Brooklyn has to bounce back after that horrible 100-86 loss at MSG and the cross-town Knicks on Wednesday. Deron Williams had 16 points with 10 assists while Brook Lopez had 16 points with 10 rebounds for the Nets.  Joe Johnson added 17 points and the Nets have not been able to score more than 40 points in the second half in the last four games and has become a major problem for the Nets. Stat of the Day: The Nets have scored 90 or fewer in their last three contests, and have allowed 99.3 points in 10 games this month since giving up 90.4 while going 11-4 in November.

This is the first game the Net are playing this year against the Sixers in the regular season and they need this division win badly so they can head into Christmas with a win vs Boston.

“It’s very tough and frustrating, considering the fact I know we’re not the team that has lost eight of the last 10,” Joe Johnson told the Nets’ official website. “The way we started, the way the ball was moving, the way we were playing defensively, you couldn’t tell me, man, that at this point we’d be right at about .500. I had no clue of that.”
