Sixers fans greet Jared Dudley with loud boos at Game 5 in Philadelphia


Everything but Brotherly Love was shown to Dudley Tuesday evening at Game 5 of the Sixers-Nets series, apparent from the raining chorus of boos he got for his pregame introduction.


He’s offended nearly all of us, after attacking our precious, seven-plus-foot, franchise center unwarranted, to insulting our glory boy first overall draft pick and Rookie of the Year and to being a general nuisance.


NBC Sports Philadelphia has you covered with your local broadcast crew — Marc Zumoff, Alaa Abdelnaby and Serena Winters — for Game 5 (and the rest of the series against Brooklyn, should it continue beyond tonight).


A Nets starting lineup change in Game 4 (adding Caris LeVert and Jared Dudley) gave Brooklyn a lift.


Joel Embiid is officially listed as probable (left knee soreness), while Ed Davis is questionable (right ankle sprain).


Despite dropping the past three, the Brooklyn Nets know that they can beat this Sixers squad, as they still have their confidence from Game 1 at Wells Fargo Center to fall back on.
