NETS TOP 76ERS 100-91


December 11, 2015, Queens, NY  On Thursday, December 10th, the Brooklyn Nets picked up their seventh win of the season as they defeated the Philadelphia 76ers at Barclays Center by a final score of 100-91. Head coach Lionel Hollins said, “This was a great team win.”

The Brooklyn Nets were able to get production both from their starters and from their bench. Thaddeus Young recorded his 11th double-double of the season, and his 10th in his last 13 games in the Nets 100-91 victory, recording 18 points and 11 Rebounds. Nets Bojan Bogdanovic added 10 points of his own. Shane Larkin came off the bench scoring 14 points and getting 6 assists. Larkin says, “I have confidence in myself. My coaches and teammates put me in situations where I can be successful.”

Nets Andrea Bargnani played an important role in this Nets win, as Brook Lopez was in foul trouble throughout the game. Bargnani who played 23:15, scored 23 points and grabbed 6 rebounds. Twenty-three points marked a season high for Bargnani. Bargnani said, “I was just looking to be aggressive and take and make open shots.” Head coach Lionel Hollins said, “We couldn’t give Brook a lot of minutes in today’s game because of his foul troubles.” Hollins knew he wasn’t going to put him back out late in the 4th quarter to have him risk fouling out of the game, and not having him if they were to go into overtime. “Everyone else from the start of the fourth quarter was able to pick up the slack. Our bench was able to get our lead back in the fourth quarter and keep it towards the end of the game.”

Jahlil Okafor led the Philadelphia 76ers as he recorded a double-double scoring 22 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. T.J. McConnell came off the bench scoring 17 points, while Richaun Holmes scored 14 points off the bench. Kendall Marshall did not suit up again due to his right knee injury, but according to sources, Marshall is set to make his debut on Friday when the 76ers play the Detroit Pistons. Marshall will be on a 16-minute limit on Friday.

The Nets will be back in action on Saturday at Barclays Center, as they’ll host Blake Griffin and the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Nets have now won their last seven home games and their second straight with this victory tonight. The Brooklyn Nets now improve to a (7-15) record, while the 76ers fall to (1-22).
