Mortal Enemies: The Dream Shake

Injury Report: The Sixers' starting frontline of Spencer Hawes and Elton Brand remain inactive. Out for the Rockets tonight will be Jordan Hill while Mike's man-crush Hasheem Thabeet is listed as questionable. I'm just gonna take a shot in the dark and guess he wouldn't get much playing time anyway.

Last season, the Sixers got a win in Houston right before the All-Star break. Can they do the same tonight? If they want to avoid a 5-game losing streak, they'll probably want to duplicate last year's result. Check out Mike's thrilling preview with the most accurate predictions I've seen since experts predicted the Vapco Vipers would make the championship in the Bethlehem City Basketball League.

Kyle Lowry!

It's time for the Sixers to go on a losing strike, and on a winning streak.
