Joel Embiid & Amir Johnson Address Phone On The Bench Scandal

The Nets, on the other hand, are looking to tighten their stranglehold on the Sixers before they take the series to Brooklyn.

After landing himself in some hot water for telling off booing fans after the Philadelphia 76ers' Game 1 loss on Saturday, Ben Simmons is taking a step back a bit. But things are different for this Nets team.

Good day from NBA Bets to win central.

Sixers head coach Brett Brown says that the use of a cell phone is "completely unacceptable" and that "the club will deal with it". "I wouldn't want to be in a place where they didn't really care or only showed up in the times we were doing well". We're in such a fight. Sixers will not let that happen again and Vegas odds give them a -7.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home win. I have to stay humble.

Can the Brooklyn Nets manage another upset of the Philadelphia 76ers when the two meet in Game 2 of their NBA Playoffs series today at 8PM ET? "Just got to go out there and win on Monday". The quicker they get back on the court the better for them.

He has every right to be pleased with his team's efforts. But not tonight. And he took this game as "big progress" for the up-and-coming Nets. They are led in scoring by D'Angelo Russell with 26 ppg, adding a team high 4 dimes per game.

Yet it was the Brooklyn's bench that was the x-factor of the afternoon, outscoring Philadelphia's second unit 59- 26.

The 29-year-old put up 12 points, 16 rebounds and was a plus-28 in 25 minutes of play. But the Nets also have reserve guards Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert to thank for the win as well.

"We just look at it, we have nothing to lose", he said (h/t Stefan Bondy, Daily News). "You're afraid with this crowd and the team they have that they're going to knock you out of the box quick".

It might be the ideal way to approach this series as all the pressure will be on the 51-win 76ers to step up and perform like the Eastern Conference contenders that they're supposed to be.

But just because Philadelphia is the higher seed at home doesn't mean it'll cover the Sixers vs. Nets spread on Monday in the NBA Playoffs 2019.
