The Eagles won! Let's hope the Sixers do too!

PROBABLE STARTERS
Kendall Marshall PG Kyle Lowry
Isaiah Canaan SG DeMar DeRozan
Robert Covington SF Terrence Ross
Nerlens Noel PF Luis Scola
Jahlil Okafor C Bismack Biyombo


Pre-Game Notes:

  • Tony Wroten will be out for his second straight game after sitting out on the second night of a back to back against Detroit. The Sixers play another game tomorrow night so expect Wroten to play and Marshall to sit then.
  • Luis Scola torched the Sixers last time they faced each other in November, with 21 points on 10-15 shooting, by thriving on mid-range shots. Okafor and Noel need to do a better job with spacing to limit this.
  • The Raptors back court will be one of the tougher match ups the Sixers will face all year. Lowry and DeRozan, and even back-up/should-have-been-a-Sixer Cory Joseph, will be the problem for the team if they aren't kept in check.
  • The Eagles won today! So let's hope the good vibes carry over and the Sixers steal a game for their second win of the season!
