The Sixers looked somewhat decent in the 2nd half of the Clippers game, but this is a classic good team vs. bad team game. And the good team is at home. I'm searching, but I don't see any reason why the Sixers win this game. For the first time in what seems like a while, the Sixers are playing a healthy opponent.

As always, when you expect your team to lose, you try to focus the positives. I'm going to enjoy the game, win or lose and hopefully witness a couple nasty dunks. I'll also keep a close eye on "the future" in Lou, Thad and Marreese.

All that being said, it would be magical if the Sixers pulled the upset. Let's go Sixers!
