Here’s what we’ll be watching for:
HOLDING ON: The Nets (44-32) lead the Chicago Bulls (42-34) by two games for the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Therefore, beating Philadelphia (31-45) Tuesday night is pivotal. The Nets are 28-4 against sub-.500 teams (at time of game played), but lost to the Sixers the last time the two teams met at Wells Fargo Center.
MAN POSSESSED: In his last two games, Deron Williams is averaging 31 points on 58.8 percent shooting. Someone appears ready to go for the playoffs.
JERSEY SALES: The Nets rank fourth in jersey sales among teams. Deron Williams ranks sixth among players.
