The Eastern Conference of the NBA will have Brooklyn Nets face off against Philadelphia 76ers in the second game of the first round tie in the playoffs on Monday.
Brooklyn Nets shocked the world by winning the first game of the series against the giants in 76ers. Few gave them a shot at doing good in this matchup, but they have proven most of their critics wrong. Interestingly, this lead will only help the franchise in their pursuit for getting into the semi-finals, the task at hand for the players will be to keep the same energy up. A 2-0 lead this early on will be next to impossible to get past.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia 76ers had a nightmare start to their playoff campaign. The pundits predicted that this team are more of a post-season side, who will be doing better in a 7-game series given how strong of a squad they have. Their superstars in Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Jimmy Butler need to buck up or else they are on their way to being embarrassed. This could be the end of what is a great side, as both Butler and Harris are on a year deal, and might want to test waters elsewhere if they find this franchise incompetent in the playoffs.
Match Timing: April 16, 2019, @ 05:30 AM IST
Venue – Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia
