Tonight the Philadelphia 76ers will play their fourth preseason game against the Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center. As of right now, the 76ers are 2-1 in preseason play.
The focus for the 76ers will be rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams. So far in the previous three games, Williams has dished out 16 assists and grabbed 13 rebounds in 79 minutes on the court. As the guy running the team, he has turned the ball over just twice.
Other 76ers playing well in the preseason are guard Even Turner, who is the leading scorer of the team with 18.7 points per game.
“So far I've scored better than I've ever scored in these past 3 years, so I can't complain," said Tuner.
Also center Spencer Hawes, who leads in rebounding 7.3 and blocks 1.3. He has registered four of the team’s eight blocked shots.
“Hawes is picking up the offensive system, which relies on big men being involved to do more than just post up, Hawes is fitting in “perfectly,” said 76ers head coach Bret Brown.
These two players have become the leaders for the 76ers.
For the Nets, they are trying to rebound after loses to the Detroit Pistons and the Washington Wizards.
The Nets' interior hasn't protected the rim at all. In the game against the Pistons, they gave up 65 points in the paint.
“Obviously we've still got a lot more room to improve, especially defensively,” said Nets all-star guard Joe Johnson.
For tonight’s game the Nets will be without guard Deron Williams, who is nursing a bad foot. Not playing for the 76ers will be rookie Nerlens Noel, who is still recovering form an ACL tear he suffered playing at the University of Kentucky.
