Over under for announced attendance stands at 14,502 (the total from the Toronto game). Place your wagers prior to opening tip.

Also, the picture of Danny Granger above is by far, my favorite shot of Granger. Miles ahead of this one

I'll take under and I'll wager 1 million dollars.

Some stats for you guys.

Guards, REB/48 min, 20+ min/game

1. Evan Turner 10.6
2. Kyle Lowry 9.1
3. Ramon Sessions 8.8
4. Manu Ginobili 7.9
5. Kobe Bryant 7.7
6. Tony Allen 7.7
7. James Harden 7.4
8. Gerald Hendersion 7.4
9. Gary Neal 7.3
10. Kyrie Irving 7.0

Paul George is 17/26 (.654%) on 3PT, but only 10/30 (.333) on 2PT. So take care tonite.

Lou has a team-leading 22.8 AST%. Followed by Jrue's 21.7 and Dre's 17.5.

I'm not a huge fan of AST% as a meaningful metric, because guys w/ inflated usage rates are made to look better than they actually are.

Man, as much as I love watching Turner clean the glass, Lowry might be my favorite guard rebounder ever. He would just sky over guys eight inches taller than him and clean the glass with Foye at Nova, which let them play with four guards on the offensive end.

no word on hibbert and hill yet

Did someone in Philly give him food poisoning? I remember Kobe getting food poisoning in Sacramento once and there being a lot of whispers about it being done intentionally.

sounds like paul george is moving to the SF for tonight


@tmoorepburbs #Sixers #Pacers won't have Danny Granger (food poisoning). George Hill starting in that spot.

I'd rather have Meeks guarding Hill than George, so that's a plus. Wonder if Iguodala winds up freelancing off George or not.

Monday pregame video: Doug Collins on facing the Pacers as part of first of three games in three nights. "I think (my players) think when I played there was a jump ball after every basket," Collins said.

Dahntay Jones matching up w/ Lou should be interesting. Think they had some words last year or maybe it was two years ago.

Bench picked it up once again after coming in. Thad, Lou, and Voose, good work guys.

Dre's showing up early tonight too.

PHI 25, IND 20 after one. Better first than we've seen in a while. Defense looks stellar, bench brought the intensity, turned into transition points. Good start.

Man, Voose has been really good. Color me very impressed. It's crazy how this team recovers and can protect the rim when they double, Jrue with the block that lead to the AI9 dunk.

This game is simple: Keep these guys off the glass.

If Vooch could get better at defensive rebounding he would be just as good and probably better than Hawes.

Keep playing like this, take care of the ball and we should be fine tonight. Interesting 36 minutes of basketball ahead. :)

Such a lazy switch by Jrue and Lou that leads to that wide-open hoop. Awful 4 possessions by them.

Honestly, have they scored in 10 minutes on anything that they have done well? Rebound and take care of the ball, and you beat this team.

Ugh, this should be a very big lead right now. They're completely shooting themselves in the foot w/ the turnovers and now the o-boards. Gotta clean this up. Collins should lose his shit at the half.

Didn't like Jodie/Thad's screen and roll defense on Jones at all. Made Voose challenge Jones and left Lou all alone with Hibbert. Jodie should have went under on Jones.

OK, please draw up a real fucking play here, Collins.

Lou got a ton of contact there.

Voose/Thad was very good that half. Hawes/Brand, not so much.

OK, time for the third quarter explosion.

BTW, I'm who looks more over the hill, Brand or West?

I love Vucevic. I was thrilled when we drafted him but this is 1000 times better than even I expected this early in his career.

Pacer O-boards are killing us. Turner looked totally lost on the offensive end, but we gave up less second-chance points when he was out there.

OK, need the starters to get some stops and boards on D. Get into transition and get to the rim on the other end. TAKE CARE OF THE BALL!

Sissy hook does something it rarely does. Draws a foul.

Man, what a weird game. Give Jrue credit for his hustle to get back and get a steal, love that.

But his decision making tonight has been unacceptable. The play is to hit Meeks for a transition three there, and it's not a hard read at all. I blame Comcast for going to that stupid over the basket cam. Probably Adam Aron's idea.

Good look and pass Lou. Hawes floater.

Sissy floater!

One more stop and one more hoop and it's game over.

And Hawes gets eaten alive + 1. Fuck me.

How bad has Hawes been? That was a crappy double by Thad though, he shouldn't split you.

Hawes wouldn't know an on-ball shot block if it hit him. No life.

Thad is money. I was worried he was going to settle for the J.

Alright, nice job Spence.

Jrue to the line. Great fucking win, guys. Great win.

Ball game. Ugly as shit, but the end result is what matters.

18 turnovers and they win by double digits? Say it ain't so ... sign of a good team? Why not ...

PHI 96, IND 86 FINAL.

They won the fourth and they won the game. 10-point win when they cough the ball up like that? Fucking awesome.

Need nominations for POTG. I'm leaning toward Iguodala.

I was leaning toward Dre, but I've settled on Thad. Dre was consistent throughout when no one else was except maybe Thad.

cough up the ball and not hit FTs

can't wait to see how they finish out this stretch, if they can go unscathed that would really show something special about this bunch

20points. POTG by default. Heh.

Ugly game, great win. Great in the sense that the way things were going, with Jrue being off in a really bad way, and the free throw disparity, to find a way to get the W somehow shows great character.

Each game I like this team more and more.

Hah! Comcast named Jrue the POTG.

That was egregiously bad.

POTG. Iggy

the Indiana Pacers = Bricklayers Union.
still a great win. D is here to stay. Sixers might end up top 5 Def. Team by Season's end.
Great game Iggy, Vuce.

knicks and bobcats in a close game on NBATV

I can't fucking watch it, Time Warner/MSG still in a lover's spat.

and we'll need it too. Pixie dust might be wearing off Hawes. The back must be an issue.

Is tomorrow night a trap game?

Voose also the only player without a turnover. Great stats in only 17 minutes play. i vote him or iguadola for potg

I vote for Thad. Great D, 6/7 shooting and 8 rebounds. Iggy had a great game too, though.

according to tom, Sixers announce attendance as 8,612.

I don't think Spencer was all that bad tonight. Sure, he was abused by Hibbert on occasion and looked like he was wearing cinderblocks while doing it, but he's been other-worldly recently while tonight he was more just worldly but not severely outplayed or anything.

Woah according to CSN the reason Spencer00 has been so beastly this season is....working out with Shawn Kemp. No, really! http://soc.li/sqITx9S

Chandler, Amare, and Melo all with 38+ minutes tonight. Iguodala and Jrue both with 38+ tonight.

knicks win if anyone was wondering

Knicks gave up a wide, wide open look at a 3 to Augustin to tie it up. He tensed up and missed it. One thing I notice from the Knicks is that Fields has made some mind boggling decisions on both ends. Doesn't help their depth when their starting shooting guard really probably shouldn't be a starting shooting guard. Hey, we have that in common actually!

Haha so true! Hilarious to think the Landry was "untouchable" in the Carmelo negotiations.

dont know if this is good or bad but brand only played 18 minutes tonight

Hibbert pretty much had his offensively, but the Pacers weren't going to him as much as they could have, ugly game but they got the win.

Hawes won't be able to stop Cousins either if the kinks keep going to him. Whether he'll make his shots like he did last night is a different story, but the Kings should go to him early and often tomorrow

how many times did we even have such a low number for attendance last season?? absolutely pathetic. only hope is that everyone wanted to stay home to watch this lame college football game.

Yeah, embarrassing. We desperately need a Center City arena. No one works within walking distance of the South Philadelphia Industrial Parking Lot Zone, so you're never going to get crowds down there for a weeknight game without a superstar draw.

the phillies put 45K in the seats every night, i do really have hope that if this team is winning the atlantic division in march the seats will start filling up. the one thing we've never had in the last 8 years (even WITH iverson) was a fast start to help pull the crowd in.

Phillies have a giant fanbase and have been a dominant franchise for several years. Philly is a blue-collar town that always loved the Phils, Eagles, and Flyers, and never cared about the Sixers. Growing up I was always pretty much the only Sixer fan among my friends. Everyone loved the other three, whereas I loved the Phils, Eagles, and Sixers.

The Sixers need a downtown arena to draw crowds. Also, when the Phils go back to a middling team (this will eventually happen) their crowds will fall. They won't be able to sustain sellouts in the South Philadelphia Industrial Parking Lot Zone once they aren't a serial contender.

Under 10,000 is pretty jarring - especially with the prices for tickets being so low in January.

But the team was up against it with so many home dates crammed in there this month.
