Mortal Enemies of the Night: NetsDaily
The Sixers, with either a win or a Charlotte loss (Charlotte is on a 4 game winning streak, and it playing at Orlando tonight), will clinch a playoff birth for the 3rd time in 4 years.
Both Elton Brand and Thaddeus Young are available for the Sixers. For the Nets, Kris Humphries is out with a sprained right ankle. Damion James and Sudiata Gains are also out.
Tipoff's at 7 pm at the Wells Fargo Center. I'll be at this one, sipping my free soda and over-cooked chicken on press row.
