Brooklyn Nets To Play Fourth Game in Five Days Friday

Eric Hartline-US PRESSWIRE

The Nets tough week ends Friday, with their fifth game in seven days, their fourth game in five nights and their third game in four nights. The 76ers, Friday's opponent are like the Nets, 3-1, so far in pre-season ... even without Andrew Bynum. And they're averaging 107 points a game.

The Nets will be home again Friday night, when they face the 76ers at Barclays Center. It will be their fourth game in five nights. And in another quirk in the pre-season schedule, the Nets will play only one game before the regular season opener November 1 - next Wednesday against the Knicks at Nassau Coliseum. So, they'll have limited opportunity to work out kinks before the games count.

Like the Nets, the Sixers are 3-1, having lost only to the Nets in the pre-season opener at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. Since then, they have beaten the Celtics by 32 and the Cavaliers by 14. They're averaging nearly 107 points a game in pre-season despite not having Andrew Bynum (knee) on the court.

The Sixers strength so far has been their backcourt and their backcourt bench with Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Nick Young and undrafted rookie Maalik Wayns all having at least one good game. Doug Collins is still mixing and matching his lineups and plans on pairing Nick Young with Holiday in Friday’s game. The two haven’t played together much. Turner will be rested.

No word yet on what Avery Johnson is planning in terms of minutes vs. the Sixers. The game will be broadcast on YES and NBA TV, the Nets' third straight nationally televised preseason game.
