No preview tonight because the Eagles distracted me yesterday and I had a long day of work today. See this is why you should only support tanking teams because if you follow good teams might be distracted and actually be interested in outcomes and oh god the Eagles heartbreak is still too much too soon. Anyway, Sixers, tonight they play the Celtics. Important update: I still hate them. Even more important update: Furkan Aldemir is available to come off the bench tonight. Also on the bench tonight: K.J. McDaniels. With all due respect to LB favorites Casper Ware, Brandon Davies, and Daniel Orton, this is the most excited I've been about the Sixers bench.

It's game time.
