Sagarin indicates the line on this game should only be Philadelphia -4, and that's not even taking into account whether Joel Embiid plays in Game 1 for Philadelphia.

He is officially listed as "Doubtful" for Saturday's game.

"It's about the pain in my knee," Embiid said. "I've just got to keep working through it, and see how I feel every day."

Embiid averaged 27.5 points and 13.4 rebounds in 64 regular-season games.

ESPN betting expert Preston Johnson writes: “Joel Embiid's health is a an obvious concern, but just how significant of an impact would Embiid missing games or playing limited minutes make? This season with Embiid off the court, the Sixers have a net rating of -5.5 points per 100 possessions. That ranks 27th percentile league-wide. When Embiid was on the court, however, the Sixers outscored opponents by 8.9 points per 100 possessions. His impact is far and away the most significant on this Philadelphia team, and his uncertainty is worrisome.”

The Nets ended their four-year playoffs drought.

"It means a lot, obviously to exceed expectations for a lot of us in here, to see how far we've come," Joe Harris said after scoring 18 of his 19 points in the decisive first half in a win against the Pacers. ”It means a ton. Hopefully, it's a sign of things to come for this organization."
