Facing a far superior team, on the road, on short rest, still trying to figure things out. With all that stacked against them, can the Sixers continue their spirited early-season play? Even if they can, will effort alone be enough to put one in the win column against such long odds?
Here are your lineups:
- PG: Jrue Holiday vs. Tony Longoria
- SG: Evan Turner vs. Manu Ginobili
- SF: Andre Iguodala vs. Richard Jefferson
- PF: Elton Brand vs. DeJaun Blair
- C: Spencer Hawes vs. Tim Duncan
DeJaun Blair really worries me. He hasn't played nearly as well this season, since being inserted into the starting lineup, but the guy is an animal on the glass, especially the offensive glass. Someone is going to need to put a body on him, and I'm just not sure who that someone is.
: 106-100, San Antonio.
This is your game thread, the tip is at 8:30 and I'll be spending my Saturday night right here watching the Sixers, hoping my kids don't wake up when I yell at the TV. Join me if you aren't into the club scene.
