The Brooklyn Nets found a way to blow another big lead in what has become a recurring theme this season. This time it was the Philadelphia 76ers who were the beneficiary of a Nets collapse as the 76ers defeated Brooklyn 120-116. The loss was the Nets 19th in their last 22 games. Brooklyn now sits 27 games under .500 as another lost season plays out in the next month.
Kenny Atkinson made some surprising pregame adjustments as Spencer Dinwiddie was shuffled out of the starting lineup in favor of Joe Harris and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Hollis-Jefferson responded by posting a team-high 21 points to go along with 10 rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes. Harris responded with 11 points and six assists while draining three of his six attempts from the 3-point line. Harris played a game-high 36 minutes.
