The Pacers' physical front line gives the Sixers fits under the best of circumstances. Tonight, the Sixers will trot out their core of soft bigs on short rest, coming off a terrible loss to the Magic in which Doug Collins inexplicably trimmed his rotation to 7 (plus Hawes) not to mention the fact the Sixers have effectively cashed in their chips and appear to be playing out the string. It doesn't look good, folks.
So obviously when every sign points to a blowout loss, the Sixers will probably show up and win this one, just to tease us. Doug Collins is probably picking names out of a hat for his latest/greatest starting lineup. My guess is he'll find a way to get 30 minutes for Hawes and Meeks, considering they've been so brilliant lately.
The tip is at 7pm. This is your game thread. If you need to vent, I can think of no better place to do it. Really not looking forward to this one.
Prediction: Misery. Either way.
