Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Philadelphia 76ers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.
On Saturday, the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets will kick off the 2022-23 NBA playoffs slate when they clash at 1 p.m. EST inside Wells Fargo Center. Philadelphia swept the Nets this year, including a narrow, 101-98 road victory on Feb. 11, the same day Mikal Bridges and Cameron Johnson made their Brooklyn debuts.
Since they entered the lineup, the Nets are 12-15 with the NBA’s 22nd-ranked net rating. The Sixers finished the year 54-28 with the fifth-best net rating. That’s a rather wide disparity in team quality, at least among these numbers. Perhaps those gulfs are partly why the majority of participants in a recent survey believe Philadelphia will swiftly eliminate their Atlantic Division opponent in this series.
