Mortal Enemies: Pounding The Rock

Injury Update: After playing the last two games, Spencer Hawes will be on the bench again tonight. On the brighter side of things, his MRI results on his back and Achilles tendon were negative. Elton Brand will be making his return after missing the last two games and will start alongside rookie Nikola Vucevic in the front court.

On the Spurs end of injury news, Manu Ginobili and TJ Ford remain on the bench as they have for the past month.

As good as the Spurs have been at home (13-1), they've been almost just as bad on the road this season by only notching 4 wins in 12 away games. Vegas knows this and has set the Sixers as 4-point favorites coming off a close win against Kobe and the Lakers.

Do you guys think Jrue will saddle up and put some Spurs on his Air Forces?
