Why the 76ers can cover

Forward Tobias Harris has been a smooth three-level scorer since entering the league in 2011. Harris can score in the low post or out on the perimeter consistently. The Tennessee product logs 17.6 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. He's scored at least 28 points in back-to-back games, including in Friday's win over the Mavericks when Harris finished with 31 points and 12 boards.

Guard Kelly Oubre Jr. is a high-energy playmaker who excels in transition and has a reliable jumper to space out the defense. The Kansas product puts up 13.8 points and 4.5 rebounds per contest. On March 3, Oubre dropped 21 points, five rebounds, and four assists. He's scored 20-plus points in 10 games this season. See who to back at SportsLine

Why the Nets can cover

Forward Mikal Bridges is a solid two-way presence on the court. Bridges creates his own shot with ease and has the length to be disruptive as a defender. The Villanova product leads the team in scoring (21.2) with 4.8 rebounds and one steal per game. In Saturday's win over the Hawks, Bridges had 38 points and five rebounds.

Center Nicolas Claxton is a lengthy and active presence in the paint. Claxton is a great finisher around the rim and does a good job being a solid rim protector. The Georgia product ranks 13th in the league in rebounds (9.9) and seventh in field-goal percentage (62.1%). He also averages 11.8 points per game. In his last matchup, Claxton dropped 12 points and 13 boards. See who to back at SportsLine
