On the other hand, the Brooklyn Nets struggled to find their rhythm on the road in the first two games of the series and had no answers for the imposing presence of Joel Embiid. Despite holding a 49-44 halftime lead in Game Two and leading by as many as ten points, the sixth-seeded Nets faltered in the face of Philadelphia‘s defensive pressure. Brooklyn struggled in the paint, being outscored 46-22, and also had a tough time finding the mark from the field, shooting a frigid 38 percent.

Brooklyn’s forward, Cameron Johnson, tried to keep his team in the game with a stellar performance from beyond the arc, knocking down 5-for-11 from three-point range and finishing with a team-high 28 points. Mikal Bridges also contributed with 21 points on 6-for-15 shooting, accompanied by seven assists and five rebounds. Spencer Dinwiddie chipped in with 12 points and six assists for the Nets, but it was not enough to overcome the relentless 76ers.
