Pregame Thread: Brooklyn Nets-Philadelphia 76ers

Coming off of a lackluster effort last night in their loss to the Celtics, the Nets are back in action tonight taking on the Sixers in their final pre-season tune up at the Barclays Center.

Three things to keep an eye on heading in to tonight’s game:

  1. How will the Nets respond after a loss? As stated earlier the Nets were out played from whistle to whistle last night by the Celtics, so it’ll be interesting to see how these particular group comes back after a loss.
  2. Minutes Watch. Coming off a game in which the starters and key bench players played regular minutes and tonight’s game being the fourth in five nights the Nets will have played, expect the reserves to get a large portion of the playing time tonight, although no official word on that yet.
  3. MarShon Brooks. If Avery Johnson’s plan is to rest the starters, then perhaps tonight might be a good opportunity to let Brooks off the leash a little. Brooks who’s missed most of the pre-season due to injury played 15 minutes in last night’s loss to the Celtics.
