A tragically bad team is coming to the WFC tonight to face the Sixers. Another swing game, win and Philly remains above .500 (hopefully, for good), lose and it'll feel like the other shoe is finally dropping.
- PG: Jrue Holiday vs. Luke Ridnour
- SG: Jodie Meeks vs. Wesley Johnson
- SF: Andre Iguodala vs. Michael Beasley
- PF: Elton Brand vs. Kevin Love
- C: Spencer Hawes vs. Darko Milicic (or Nikola Pekovic)
There are a couple of obvious fun matchups to keep an eye on. Iguodala guarding Beasley and Beasley "guarding" Iguodala. How will Brand keep Kevin Love off the glass? Will Collins go with that at the four at all while Love is in there with another legit big? Will Minnesota's big lineup give the Sixers problems? Will Collins go to Turner early to negate the size advantage at the two?
This had better be a win, that's all that really needs to be said. I'm looking forward to it.
PHI 110, MIN 98
The tip is at 7pm. I'm going to have to watch on replay, so the game thread is yours, guys. Enjoy, keep it civil, and make me proud. Also, use this thread throughout the day to bounce around whatever topics may pop up.
The session I'm most looking forward to at SSAC: Tough call, maybe this one - "Allocation and Dynamic Efficiency in NBA Decision Making" - Matthew Goldman and Justin M. Rao.
