If the Playoffs began today, the 8th seeded Sixers would face the death sentence of drawing the top seeded Bulls and the Pacers would find themselves pitted against the Orlando Magic, with home court advantage.

This game will serve as a tune up for both teams, and the Sixers desperately need to win to stay in the playoffs. They lead the 9th seeded Bucks by only 2.0 games right now. The Bucks have won 6 of their past 10 while the Sixers have lost 7 of their last 10 and currently are riding a two game losing streak. Getting back on track tonight is elemental, and the Sixers are 19-13 at home this season, while the Pacers are 18-14 on the road.

The Sixers are going to have to get big involvement from their guard rotation of Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, and Louis Williams. The Pacers will look to slow them with Darren Collison, George Hill and Paul George, but this game could be won and lost in the backcourt. Roy Hibbert and David West will look to get things going against Spencer Hawes and Elton Brand. Hibbert has the potential to be a nightmare to the Sixer defense.
