Sports Talk with Brodes: Sixers Close Out the Brooklyn Nets with Defense!
The Philadelphia Sixers close out the Brooklyn Nets thanks to their defense. The fourth quarter defense was absurd and beautiful as they held the Nets to 16 points total while scoring 31 points of their own. Tobias Harris stole the show with an efficient day at the office. He shot 14-20 with 34 points and recorded 10 rebounds. Matisse Thybulle found himself in the starting lineup over Mike Scott which was a good move by Brett Brown. He had four blocks and two steals and sure knows how to energize this team. Furkan Korkmaz had a stretch in the fourth quarter of making two three-pointers and also got fouled from behind the arc. He ended up missing those free throws and getting his own rebound for a putback layup. Spencer Dinwiddie obviously had a great game because why wouldn't he against this Sixers team? He always does. Kyrie Irving struggled and was -29 on the night.
