76ers complete sweep of Nets with dominant second half

Apr 22, 2023

Tobias Harris had 25 points and 12 rebounds, and the Philadelphia 76ers overcame the absence of Joel Embiid to beat the Brooklyn Nets 96-88 Saturday, completing a sweep that made them the first team to reach the second round of the playoffs.

James Harden added 17 points, 11 assists and eight rebounds for the third-seeded 76ers, who will wait for the winner of the series between the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks. The defending Eastern Conference champion Celtics have a 2-1 lead in that series.

The 76ers hope Embiid will be recovered from his sprained right knee in time for the start of the next series. The MVP finalist and two-time NBA scoring champion was ruled out Friday night, and the 76ers struggled to score without him.
