THE STORY: Game Preview
The Nets took a tough loss in a winnable game against the Rockets on Friday night. They were cruising for the first quarter and a half, but the Rockets clawed back within striking distance and then had the legs to finish it off in the second half. Chris Paul was getting anything he wanted, finishing with 32 points, 11 assists, and seven rebounds while the Nets just couldn’t buy a bucket in the closing minutes. Annoying. Time to move on.
Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, and presumably the rest of the 76ers will be heading up to the Barclays Center to play the Nets on the second half of a back-to-back following a game against Detroit Saturday afternoon. Again, a tough but winnable game. The Nets are going to need to execute better defensively and try to contain Embiid as best they can. Let’s get into it.
