Here are three storylines to watch:
The Sixers (and JJ Redick) have done a terrific job containing Joe Harris in this series, who hasn’t hit a three in the past two games. You’ve probably noticed by now that how the Nets have looked to defend Redick is quite similar to how the Sixers have defended Harris. But Redick and the Sixers have adjusted to the Nets' defense and found ways to get Redick open. Brooklyn will be looking to do that with Harris.
Ed Davis is out for Game 4 after tweaking his ankle, which means we’ll be seeing a lot of small ball for the Nets. We’ve seen the Sixers put Mike Scott at center to counter those small-ball lineups, so don’t be surprised if we see that again this afternoon. On a related note, it would be nice to get Scott going after he struggled to hit shots in Game 1 and Game 2. The Sixers are going to need him as they get deeper into the playoffs.
A starting lineup change?
There was a lot of talk at Nets practice about a potential starting lineup change. Might we see Joe Harris come off the bench? Maybe Spencer Dinwiddie or Caris LeVert in the starting lineup? Atkinson said everything is on the table.
