W2W4: Nets at Sixers

4/5/2014

The Brooklyn Nets face the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night at Wells Fargo Center. Here’s what we’ll be watching for:

KG RETURNS? Kevin Garnett -- listed as a game-time decision -- is expected to return to the lineup for the Nets. He has missed the past 19 games due to back spasms. Garnett’s return would be a big lift to Brooklyn in terms of improving its defense and rebounding.

GAMES OF INTEREST: The Nets (41-34) trail Toronto and Chicago by 2 1/2 games for homecourt advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. Toronto is in Milwaukee, while Chicago is in Washington.

ROAD WOES: The Nets have lost three straight games on the road, but should be able to change that against the Sixers (17-59), who only recently snapped a 26-game losing streak.
