The game we've all been waiting for.

The first match-up we somehow won without our Big 3 back in November. Brooklyn was fully loaded.

Tonight Harden is off the injury report, Embiid is listed as GTD. Durant is still sidelined.

We're riding a 5 game winning streak, sweeping our west coast road trip and have all the momentum. Brooklyn are coming off a win at Golden State Sunday and are 5-5 in their last 10.

This game is a toss up if Embiid is not playing.

If Embiid foesn't play this game basically comes down to Melton guarding Kyrie.

On the other hand, this is a game i would not start PJ in, sag off Ben all you can. I also would try to stagger Maxey with Claxton so he can attack the 5 when Claxton is off the floor.

If Embiid is out this game is going to be decided by Maxey and how good our defense is. It’s a defensive test again particularly against Irving and their 3 point shooters. I think Irving will score and have his flashes but Harden is just as effective with overall production so that will be a wash. Maxey though has an opportunity to blitz their defensive second unit.

Also, if Joel doesn't play, put Reed on Ben and problem solved lol

I would expect Embiid to play in this game, he wants it, rest Embiid the next game.
Also I don't get why so many of you mention Ben so much, he is a non factor these days even in RS, he is already washed up. In fact, this would be a good game to start Maxey, put him to defend Simmons and I guarantee you he won't do jack **** even against a traffic cone like Maxey.

More excited for Nuggets game tbh. Ben has regressed and harden has clearly been the better player. No interesting storylines to get behind. Just another game that I hope we win

Ben scores 25 points, there's a "fight" because Embiid fouls him too hard, Sixers win 115-93.

The Nets defense looks disjointed tbh. Too much collapsing around Joel

This is an important game with implications for playoff standings. We need to win this one
