Tensions are rising in the first-round NBA playoff series between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets.
Things got chippy between the two Eastern Conference squads in Game 2 after Sixers center Joel Embiid received a Flagrant 1 foul for hitting Nets center Jarrett Allen with a hard elbow to the face in the second quarter. Brooklyn’s frustration only grew from there, as Philly cruised to a 22-point win.
The Nets and 76ers will square off again Thursday night in Brooklyn with the series tied 1-1. The sixth-seeded Nets stunned the third-seeded 76ers in Game 1, and they’ll look to do the same in the series’ first matchup at Barclays Center.
