Against the Spread Pick
Kyrie is back and this feels like just the sort of game that he can make a big difference. The thing is whether the Nets can keep it close enough for three quarters so they can take advantage of one of the game’s best closers. They have won and covered their last two but they are home to Utah the night before and that is likely a loss the way the Jazz are playing. Back to back nights against teams with size will test them inside too. Philly will not be playing the night before and will look to take advantage so they can stop a two game losing streak. Just when things appear to be falling into place for Philly they seem to hit a snag. They are playing without Joel Embiid which while presenting a nice development opportunity for others hurts them in the short term. Still, at home against a tired Brooklyn team I like the 76ers.
