After a stellar start to the 2020-21 NBA season, in which they won seven of their first eight games, the Philadelphia 76ers now take on the Brooklyn Nets in their latest fixture. The Brooklyn Nets come into the game missing a few players, although the most notable absence is that of Kevin Durant.

The Philadelphia 76ers also have a couple of injuries although they are expected to start with the same five they used in their previous fixture, which was the 34-point blowout victory against the Utah Jazz.

While both teams are expected to compete for the NBA Championship this time around, the Brooklyn Nets are missing their biggest star. They will start as the underdogs against a Philadelphia 76ers side that has started the season in top form with Joel Embiid playing at an MVP level.

The Philadelphia 76ers also boast an impressive supporting cast with Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, and Seth Curry chipping in with crucial performances as well. The Sixers will be looking to post another win, this time against a short-handed Brooklyn Nets.

However, even in Durant’s absence, the Nets have enough firepower to see them through. A lot will depend on the offensive support Kyrie Irving can receive during the game.

We look at the injury report for both teams, in addition to the channels on which the match can be watched on.

The Philadelphia 76ers have looked in top form and will be relying on the duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid to see them through against the Nets.

Brooklyn Nets- Team Nets

The biggest issue for the Brooklyn Nets is the absence of Kevin Durant, who is one of the best players in the NBA right now. Spencer Dinwiddie and Nicolas Claxton are also unavailable for the game against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Brooklyn Nets do have Kyrie Irving, who will almost certainly be the ball handler for the night.
