Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets Preview and Predictions 04-18-2019 in NBA

After a sluggish series opener, the Philadelphia 76ers looked unbeatable during many stretches in Game 2 against the Brooklyn Nets. The Sixers will try to build some momentum off that impressive win while stealing back homecourt advantage when they visit the Nets for Game 3 of their Eastern Conference best-of-seven series Thursday night.

Ben Simmons posted a triple-double and Joel Embiid added 23 points and 10 rebounds as Philadelphia soared to a 145-123 victory Monday night to even the series 1-1, utilizing a 51-point third quarter to take charge. "We did what we tried to do in the first half, just kind of harder, better, longer type stuff," Sixers coach Brett Brown told the media of the second-half performance. "We didn't really change stuff schematically, we just did what we wanted to do, better." The Nets, who were in control for much of Game 1, were within a point at halftime in Monday's loss and feel the second-half meltdown won't knock them off their mission. "I know the Barclays Center is going to be jumping in there [for Game 3]," guard D'Angelo Russell told reporters. "The buzz around the city is what we needed."

TV: 8 p.m. ET, TNT, NBCS Philadelphia, My9 (Brooklyn)

ABOUT THE 76ERS: Embiid is averaging 22.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in just 22.5 minutes in the series as he continues to play through a sore knee, and Philadelphia is getting a nice boost from backup center Boban Marjanovic, who produced 16 points and eight rebounds in 18 minutes Monday. "We already played one game, and I figured out, this is my thing," Marjanovic told the media. "They cannot take away my jumpshot. I didn't take [jumpshots] through my career a lot, but I can shoot, to be honest." Marjanovic was part of a bench that shot 60 percent from the floor, with forward Mike Scott burying 3-of-5 3-pointers en route to 15 points.

ABOUT THE NETS: Russell had scored at least 20 points in seven consecutive games before being held to 16 in Game 2, while sharpshooter Joe Harris was limited to four points, his lowest total since Jan. 6. "It's tough, they were blocking a lot of the screening situations," Harris told reporters. "They were forcing me to the rim, taking away any sort of 3-point threats. But a lot of it is on me, just being able to move a little more aggressively, hunt different shots maybe in transition." Center Jarrett Allen also struggled to nine points in 23 minutes while having his issues defending Embiid, an issue made more glaring when fellow big man Ed Davis hampered by a sprained ankle and foul trouble.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Philadelphia has outrebounded Brooklyn 99-77 in the series.

2. Nets SG Caris LeVert is 5-for-7 from 3-point range through the first two games.

3. Sixers SF Tobias Harris scored 19 points in Game 2 after being held to four in 41 minutes of Game 1.

PREDICTION: 76ers 114, Nets 112

Denver Nuggets vs. San Antonio Spurs Preview and Predictions 04-18-2019 in NBA

The San Antonio Spurs have won 13 straight home games against Denver so they are in a good position heading into Thursday's Game 3 of the Western Conference first-round series against the visiting Nuggets. The Spurs split two games in Denver and now will look to continue their longstanding home dominance against the Nuggets.

Second-seeded Denver was in extreme danger of being in a 0-2 hole when it trailed by 19 points late in the third quarter of Game 2 before outplaying seventh-seeded San Antonio the rest of the way to record a 114-105 victory. "We don't quit," reserve guard Malik Beasley told reporters. "Playoff experience matters, but as long as you play hard and play together, that's what matters on the court." The collapse rates as a big missed opportunity for the Spurs, considering how they haven't lost to the Nuggets in San Antonio since March 4, 2012. "We got Game 1. We fought, tried to get Game 2, but we got homecourt shifting our way," Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan told reporters. "Now, it's on us to go home and do what we need to do, understand if we take care of home, like we've been doing all year, we can come back here with an opportunity. We feel great where we're at. We understood it wasn't going to be a cake walk."

TV: 9 p.m. ET, NBATV, Altitude (Denver), FS Southwest (San Antonio)

ABOUT THE NUGGETS: Point guard Jamal Murray made critical mistakes down the stretch in Game 1 and he was dreadful for the first three quarters of Game 2 before erupting to score 21 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter of the comeback victory. Murray missed all eight of his field-goal attempts over the first three quarters but coach Michael Malone stuck with him and he was a blistering 8-of-9 shooting as Denver outscored the Spurs 39-23 over the final 12 minutes. "Jamal was trying to play the right way," Malone told reporters afterward. "I didn't foresee the fourth quarter he was going to have, but I knew in my heart he needed to get these minutes. I needed to show him I believed in him. That's powerful. Really proud of him. He was so frustrated at halftime. It was great to see him have some success."

ABOUT THE SPURS: San Antonio had its eyes opened by the comeback of the youthful Nuggets and will be looking to halt Denver's well-earned momentum in Game 3. "They obviously have something to prove," backup point guard Patty Mills told reporters of the Nuggets. "We know how good they are. It's a confident team that is going to come out very aggressive. We need to be ready and we need to improve." DeRozan poured in 31 points, power forward LaMarcus Aldridge added 24 and point guard Derrick White had 17 points in Game 2 but nobody else on the squad reached double digits.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Nuggets SG Gary Harris scored 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting in Game 2 and is averaging 21.5 points in the series.

2. White is averaging 16.5 points on 14-of-21 shooting in the series.

3. Denver G-F Will Barton is averaging 9.0 points on just 7-of-25 shooting - including 1-of-11 from 3-point range.

PREDICTION: Spurs 108, Nuggets 104

Golden State Warriors vs. LA Clippers Preview and Predictions 04-18-2019 in NBA

The Golden State Warriors looked like they were cruising to a 2-0 lead over the eighth-seeded Los Angeles Clippers until everything fell apart on Monday. The Warriors will try to bounce back after squandering a 31-point lead in a Game 2 loss and re-establish homecourt advantage when they visit the Clippers for Game 3 on Thursday.

Golden State went up 31 points with over seven minutes left in the third quarter, but superstar Stephen Curry was whistled for his fourth foul seconds later and had to leave the game, and Los Angeles brought Lou Williams back into the game at that point and began to make its run. "I hated my fourth foul, almost eight minutes left in the third quarter," Curry told reporters. "Our whole rotation changes. A lot of little things that end up giving them confidence. That snowball effect." Williams finished with 36 points on 13-of-22 shooting and 11 assists in 33 minutes and was nonchalant about the performance. "For me, I just got lost in the moment, to be honest with you," Williams told reporters. "I was trying to cut the lead down. I know we were down 30 at one point. I just got lost in the moment."

TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, TNT, NBCS Bay Area (Golden State), FS Prime Ticket (Los Angeles)

ABOUT THE WARRIORS: Before Curry left the game after drawing his fourth foul and before the lead evaporated on Monday, Golden State was already feeling down after watching center DeMarcus Cousins go down with a quad injury in the first half. Veteran center Andrew Bogut logged a season-high 17 minutes off the bench, finishing with three points and nine rebounds, and summed up the team's feelings after the contest. "The mood's (expletive)" Bogut told reporters of the postgame locker room. "And that's actually a positive sign in my opinion. It wasn't something where we were like, 'Oh, we'll get them next time.' We're genuinely (ticked) off about it."

ABOUT THE CLIPPERS: Los Angeles rookie point guard Landry Shamet hit the go-ahead 3-pointer in the final minute and power forward Montrezl Harrell iced the game with two free throws to cap a 25-point effort on 9-of-9 shooting that included 10 rebounds off the bench. "We came out (in the) second half, did some defensive things, coverages were different," Harrell told reporters. "Overall, coming out of the locker room in the second half, we played a lot harder, was a lot more aggressive. We went downhill and played basically Clippers basketball." Los Angeles scored 85 points in the second half and shot 56.5 percent from the field in the contest after managing 48 second-half points and shooting 40 percent in a 121-104 Game 1 setback.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Warriors SF Kevin Durant committed nine of the team's 22 turnovers on Monday.

2. Harrell is averaging 25.5 points on 20-of-24 shooting in the series.

3. Cousins could miss the remainder of the playoffs with a left quad injury.

PREDICTION: Warriors 125, Clippers 121
