This thread was going to be subtitled "Chronicles of Redick," but then he broke his hand and it's all ruined and screw that guy.

This is going to be an interesting frontcourt matchup. Thad and Hawes, who finesse bigs, against Griffin and Jordan, two enormous guys who can jump out of the gym and have about an arm's length of range. That's not meant to be any kind of normative judgment (though I'd bet on the Sixers being outrebounded)--just an observation about a potentially interesting contrast of styles.

Also, Maalik Wayns is down here somewhere on the Clippers' depth chart. We'll see if Doc Rivers trots Sheep out for a wave to the hometown crowd.

And a big ol' honkin' c/g to Clips Nation, who have alternative coverage of tonight's events.
