Preview of tonight’s Bucks at 76ers game, from Milwaukee’s view.
Jrue Holiday’s steadily improving play is starting to get noticed around the League and with the national media. ESPN.com’s David Thorpe projects that Holiday will eventually go down as a Top 5 player in the 2009 Draft Class. Also there is an extensive interview with Holiday over at HoopsTV.

We like the Sixers chances of inching closer to a Top 5 pick this weekend. The NBA schedule has the Sixers on a back-to-back set this weekend, the final weekend of the regular season. Friday they face the Bucks down at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers lead the season series over the Bucks 2-1, but Milwaukee is locked into a playoff seed battle and should be plenty hungry on Friday night. Then on Saturday night the 76ers take on the Grizzlies in Memphis. The Grizz beat the Sixers 102-97 back in November during their only match up so far this year.
We learn from the 76ers Twitter account that Rodney Carney will be game time decision and Francisco Elson will be available vs. the Bucks tonight .
