Tonight the 76ers (1-1) will hit the hardwood down at the Wells Fargo Center for the first time this pre-season as they take on the Boston Celtics in their 3rd preseason game. Personally, I’d like to see the Sixers bounce back from their overtime loss to the Nets and the lackluster performance against a bad Orlando team with a big W tonight.
However in the pre-season certain things are more importnat than wins and losses. So with an eye on the start of the regular season and the eventual return of Andrew Bynum, I will be taking notes on three items with this 76ers roster tonight.
1) Seeing what Moultrie can do with extended mintues.
Rumor has it that rookie Arnett Moultrie (pic at left) will be getting the start tonight for the 7-6. This makes sense especially because earlier in the day the 76ers tweeted that Kwame Brown will not be active tonight. Also Kevin Garnett will more than likely according to Doc Rivers not play tonight, which means Moultrie should put up some big numbers and get some confidence flowing. With only two points on Saturday against the Nets in 11 minutes of action I’d like to see Arnett get plenty of burn and be more aggressive in attacking the rim.
