Long time NBA fan, have been following the game closely for 21 years now. Joining the Pickswise writing staff for the 2020-21 season. Hopefully we can make some money together! Oh, and I firmly believe Lebron James is not one of the two best basketball players of all time. Yeah, I said it.

A total of 8 teams are in action tonight in the NBA and we have ourselves an all-Eastern Conference match-up on NBA TV as the Philadelphia 76ers take on the Brooklyn Nets!

The game from Barclays Center starts at 7.30 pm ET, and we’ve prepared a same-game parlay which you can find below. Along with this parlay, be sure to check our predictions on the side and total for the rest of Thursday’s 4-game slate!

Now let’s get into the Sixers vs Nets match-up.

Brooklyn Nets -5.5 Alt Spread (+168)

Kevin Durant to Make Over 2.5 Threes (-111)

Blake Griffin Over 8.5 Points (-128)

Parlay odds: +677

Brooklyn Nets -5.5 Alt Spread (+168)

The Nets currently have 7 players in the health and safety protocols, but they also have Kevin Durant on their team. He destroyed the Pistons with 51 points and then followed that up with a 30-point triple-double against the Raptors the next game. KD is unstoppable at the moment and the Nets have gone 4-1 SU in their last 5 and have defeated 9 of their last 10 Eastern Conference opponents. Philadelphia has struggled recently. They are coming off a loss against a Miami Heat team that was without Butler and Adebayo, despite having Joel Embiid back in the line-up. Sixers are just 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.

Check out our full game preview for Philadelphia 76ers vs Brooklyn Nets

Kevin Durant to Make Over 2.5 Threes (-111)

Everything right now depends on Kevin Durant as far as the Nets offense goes. KD has logged 48, 41, 38 and 41 minutes over his last 4 games. His volume of shots has gone up dramatically with so many players being out, and that has resulted in 29 and 31 shots in his previous 2 games. He took a total of 18 threes and made 7 of them, and I have no doubt we’ll see a similar scenario tonight. If fatigue kicks in, which is a possibility, he will settle more on the perimeter, so naturally more 3-point attempts mean a higher chance of him making a higher volume of shots. Philadelphia allows the 10th highest 3-point percentage of all teams on the road this season at 36.6 percent. Fingers crossed KD gets hot from deep.

Blake Griffin Over 8.5 Points (-128)

With the COVD outbreak on the team, Griffin’s minutes skyrocketed against the Raptors the previous game. He played 31 minutes which equaled his season high dating back to the early part of November. He finished the game with 13 points on 66 percent shooting and drained a pair of 3-pointers in the process as well. Griffin has looked washed at times this season, but desperate times require desperate measures. The Nets currently have just 8 players who can play, so Griffin will be basically forced to take at least 6-8 shots. We all know he is a capable scorer both from short range and from the perimeter. His free throws have also been on point, so hopefully he can take advantage of the extra minutes tonight.
