Game 50 - Nets vs. 76ers - Wednesday, February 2, 7:00

New, comments

The Nets have won five of their last six at home, beating among others the Jazz and the Nuggets at "The Rock".  But they haven't beaten a division rival in that stretch.  In fact, they haven't played a division rival in six weeks.  Now, they will get a chance to move up a bit when they play the 76ers at home Wednesday.

The Sixers, however,  have won four of five and are coming off an impressive bounce-back victory, just another sign that they've put their woeful start behind them. Like the Nets, the Sixers beat Denver this week and like the Nets did it with an impressive offensive show, shooting 55%.  Andre Iguodala, now healthy, and Thaddeus Young have led Philly's recent surge, combining for 45 on Sunday.

The Nets are coming off what was their biggest and perhaps most emotional win.  Devin Harris and Brook Lopez are playing particularly well.  Harris averaged 9.9 assists in January while Lopez average 20.4 points and shot 54% for the month.  Orien Greene, the Nets first 10-day contract in six years, is expected to suit up after practicing Tuesday.
