Mortal Enemies: Straight Outta Vancouver

Bullet points!

  • Elton Brand will miss the final two games before the All-Star break. Andres Nocioni will start along with Lavoy Allen in the front court. ANDRES NOCIONI AND LAVOY ALLEN
  • Mo Speezy makes his return against Doug Collins. He's actually playing decent.
  • The Grizzlies are best in the league in forcing turnovers. The Sixers are best in the league in taking care of the ball. Something has to give.
  • Other than turnovers, the Sixers need to keep the Grizzlies off the offensive glass, where they are 4th best in the league.
  • Lavoy and Vucevic are going to have a tall order to fill covering Marc Gasol in the post.

Prediction: Grizzlies 95, Sixers 88
