Brooklyn Nets (25-52) at 76ers (46-30)
Tuesday at 7 p.m., at the Wells Fargo Center
The Sixers look to extend their winning streak to 11 games for the first time since winning 12 straight from Jan. 13 to Feb. 5, 1990. They’ll have to do it without sidelined standouts Joel Embiid (fractured orbital bone left eye) and Dario Saric (cellulitis in right elbow). The Nets are playing arguably their best basketball of the season, going 4-4 in their last eight games. Those contests have been decided by a total of 10 points. Brooklyn had been 4-20 in the previous 24 games.
