After tonight, the games get much, much more difficult. The Sixers need to take advantage of the weak opponent they're facing tonight. They need to regain the energy they were playing with prior to last night's game and they need to set the tone for the upcoming road trip. Win the game, and look good doing it.
- PG: Jrue Holiday vs. Eric Bledsoe (or Baron Davis)
- SG: Jodie Meeks vs. Eric Gordon
- SF: Andre Iguodala vs. Al-Farouq Aminu (or Ryan Gomes)
- PF: Elton Brand vs. Blake Griffin
- C: Spencer Hawes vs. DeAndre Jordan
I have no idea which lineup the Clippers will use, though I've been told repeatedly that they're doing things the right way by starting all their young players.
This is your game thread. The tip is at 7pm and I'll be here throughout. Also, after the game Derek and I will host an episode of SixersBeat
(starting at 10:30pm), so join me for the game and call in afterward to discuss it.
Also, the wrap
from last night's game is updated now with the rotation chart and the link to the game capsule
