Mortal Enemies of the Night: Indy Cornrows
- Andre Iguodala will play and start tonight, in place of Andres Nocioni
- Iguodala has done a great job on Danny Granger so far this year, holding him to 14.5 points per game on 33% shooting in the previous two encounters, particularly the second game where he held Granger to 7 shots on 14 attempts.
- The Pacers are coming in having lost 6 of their previous 7, falling quickly in the Eastern Conference standings. They currently sit a half game ahead of the Sixers for the 7th spot in the east.
- The Pacers don't get to the line, nor rebound the ball well offensively, two areas the Sixers should be able to exploit.
Prediction: Sixers win 97-92
