After thoroughly outclassing the hapless Cavs in Philly last night, the Sixers hitched a ride to Cleveland to do it all over. The conclusion of this back-to-back, home-and-home is going to tell us something about both of these teams. The Cavs have a mandate to make the playoffs from ownership. The Sixers have a mandate to win the lottery from their GM. Another Sixers win will put both destinies in doubt.
Basically the team with more energy is probably going to win this game. Cleveland has more talent, but terrible coaching. The Sixers seem intent on punching above their weight. The good news for Cleveland is they sure didn't expend much energy in last night's drubbing. Time will tell.
Tip is at 7:30pm. I'll be around. Join me.
