Sixers Look to Build Momentum in Indy

Share


Coming off a win in Toronto on Wednesday in which the Sixers looked to click a bit, the Sixers are in Indiana tonight and will attempt to win their second straight.

This isn't Reggie Millers' Pacers. Indiana seems to be full of fresh faces like the speedy T.J. Ford. The Pacers coach is none other than former Sixers head coach, Jim O'Brien.

Another interesting twist to tonight's game is the potential face off of brothers Kareem and Brandon Rush.

The brothers have played against each other in the backyard, in pickup
games. But not in an organized setting like the one they'll be in
tonight. They'll be lined up against each other, although it remains to
be seen whether they'll guard each other, when the Sixers face the
Pacers in Conseco Field House.

I'm looking forward to watching the point guard match up. From the Pacers website:

Among the many things the Pacers expected of T.J. Ford, nightly
flirtations with triple-doubles was not on the list. And yet Ford has
come tantalizingly close three games in a row, averaging 19.0 points,
9.3 assists and 8.0 rebounds in the process. He is really taking charge
of the offense and establishing his leadership on the floor, taking
over at key times if necessary. Andre Miller is bigger and stronger and
the Sixers may use him in the post against Ford. He has shot the ball
very well (17 of 30) in the last two games after a slow start.
