Wednesday's games

Brooklyn Nets at Philadelphia 76ers (-6.5, 232)

Fulghum: Joel Embiid scored 36 points in just 25 minutes on Monday against the Mavericks. In another prime time game against a high-profile opponent, Embiid should feast again on a frontcourt that has no one capable of limiting his efficiency offensively. Don't be surprised to see another 15 free-throw attempts from the 76ers big man against the defense of Nicolas Claxton and DeAndre Jordan.
