Nets Take on 76ers as Wizards Travel to Cavaliers
It’s the NBA action! This week, the Nets will be looking to extend their winning streak to three games as they play 6th place 76ers. Wizards will also be travelling to face Cavaliers following their 119-112 defeat in the hands of Miami Heat. Keep reading to find out the best odds and what to expect in these encounters.
Nets Hoping to Continue Winning Ways
Nets have been spectacular this season, winning seven of their last ten games. The team is currently on a two-game winning streak and will be looking to extend it to 3 when they face 76ers this Friday. They are the current table-toppers in the Eastern Conference standings, and we expect a great performance.
Despite being the favourites of the encounter, it will be a mistake to write 76ers off that fast. The team has also performed well this season, winning a total of 20 games. They are 6th on the Eastern Conference standings and will be looking to increase their winning percentage with the hope of moving up the table.
Head to Head Stats and Previous Results
Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers have played at least 50 games in the past, out of which Nets won 24 games, and 76ers won 26. Their last encounter was on December 17, 2021, and the Nets won the game 114:105. Both teams have good players capable of scoring many points.
Kevin Durant Set Back in Action for Nets
After missing the Nets’ last three games, Kevin Durant is set to play against the 76ers this Thursday. The Nets’ forward has cleared health and safety protocols, which means he will be back in action for his team and hopefully continue with his scoring ways. He will undoubtedly have an impact in the game against the 76ers if he plays.
Can 76ers Extend Road Win to Four?
76ers may not be in the top three of the NBA Eastern Conference standings, but they have been in good form. Currently, they have won three games on the road and will be looking to extend it to four. However, they may be without Danny Green, Maxey Tyrese, and other players.
Wizards Travel to Cavaliers on Friday
Washington Wizards will be playing Cleaveland Cavaliers on Friday in the NBA. The team is currently in 8th position on the standings with 17 wins and 17 losses. They lost their last two games and will be looking to secure a win when they face 5th position Cavaliers.
Wizards’ last encounter was against Miami Heats when they lost 119:112. The team has not been that impressive, recording 11-11 against Eastern Conference opponents. However, the Cavaliers have managed to win 20 games so far, with 13-7 against their conference opponents. But this does not mean they will find it easy to beat the Wizards.
Both teams have played a total of 226 games against each other in regular seasons, with Wizards winning 117 and Cavaliers winning 109. Their last encounter was on December 3, 2021, when Cavaliers won 116-101. They will be hoping for a repeat of this kind when they face each other on Friday.
Team News and Injury Report
With the coronavirus affecting several NBA teams, Cavaliers and Wizards will be without some players. For Wizards, Bradley Beal, Rui Hachimura and Montrezl Harrel may not be present. These players have been placed in the NBA’s COVID-19 protocols. Thomas Bryant may also not feature in the game following the knee injury he picked up.
Cleveland Cavaliers will miss Ricky Rubio, who also has a knee injury. Besides that, Darius Garland, Cedo Osman and Ed Davis may be absent in the encounter against the Wizards. But despite the injury and coronavirus crisis, we expect the Cavaliers vs Wizards game to be exciting and action-packed.
