Philadelphia 76ers vs Indiana Pacers Preview


The Sixers will tip off against the Pacers in Indiana in about an hour. Let’s give you guys the important important everyone needs to know for tonight’s game:

  • Tony Wroten will start in place of James Anderson, who has a right thigh bruise that could sideline him for three-to-four days.
  • Andrew Bynum will not play tonight due to swelling in the knee, he will need an MRI (sound familiar?).
  • James Nunnally will receieve about 7-to-8 minutes of game action tonight, according to Brett Brown (found on Sixers twitter page).

The Sixers are trying to avoid losing their 21st consecutive game, while the Pacers will be looking to win their fourth in a row.

Who To Watch For:

  • Keep your eye on Darius Johnson-Odom when he’s in the game. Being on a 10-day contract, he knows how valuable every minute of game action is.
  • Watch James Nunnally in his limited action. Depending on the game, he could see more time. He has a quick jumper and is another player on a 10-day contract.
  • Tony Wroten has been impressive in his starts this season, but most of them have been at the point guard position. It will be interesting to see him in the two guard role, playing next to Michael Carter-Williams.
  • Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen will once again face their former team, always interesting to see how that affects the players.
  • This is an every game thing, but will we get the Rookie of the Year candidate as our point guard or the turnover machine?
