Well, if you need to bounce back from a bad home loss, I guess the best way to do it would be on the road, against the well-rested #1 seed on the second night of a back-to-back, right?
- PG: Jrue Holiday vs. Derrick Rose
- SG: Jodie Meeks vs. Keith Bogans
- SF: Andre Iguodala vs. Luol Deng
- PF: Elton Brand vs. Carlos Boozer
- C: Spencer Hawes vs. Joakim Noah
No word as of this writing as to whether Iguodala will play. Either way, it's hard to say you need a game when the odds are soundly against you getting it. There's a very good chance the Sixers will drop back to .500 tonight, but stranger things have happened. I can only assume Doug Collins had a few choice words for the guys after yesterday's loss. Let's hope we see the Jrue from the second half yesterday all night, and Bad Lou/Bad Thad didn't make the flight. They're going to need solid production from the bench after the extended minutes for the starters yesterday.

To the first person to spot me on TV. I'll be there, behind the Sixers bench, wearing a Sixers jacket.
