Last one, everyone. Game is only available in Philadelphia on League Pass and in Boston on CSN Boston. Yes, that means you need to listen to Tommy Heinsohn. I know, it can be difficult. Everyone on both sides looks healthy enough, though Hollis Thompson is resting.

This will be the last straw in the point guard battle. Thompson resting opens up a bit more time, and the Sixers want to evaluate up until the last minute all of their guys. So we might get a lot of different looks tonight. Official game time is 7:30 EDT.
