The difference between the 9th-worst record in the league and the 4th-worst record in the league is a mere 3 games in the win column. Tonight's game is the first of four games that could easily be wins for the Sixers.If a high lottery pick is the goal, they absolutely must lose them.
Speights is out for the Sixers, Dunleavy is questionable for the Pacers. I'm assuming Eddie Jordan will go back to the standard starting lineup of Jrue, Lou, Iguodala, Brand and Sammy.
Key to The Game: Three-point defense. Indy has a rare combination of taking way too many threes, and not making nearly enough. If they get hot from deep, it'll be a long night.
If ____________ the Sixers will win: 35+ minutes for Jrue, simply because the basketball gods love to torture me.
