The Sixers wil be without the services of Hawes and “Big Nik” again tonight vs. the Nets.
Which means that hopefully the Lavoy Allen lovefest will continue . We know it’s only 2 games, but does Lavoy’s emergence signal the end of the Craig Brackins era in Philly — before it even got started?
NBA.com has a preview of tonight’s Nets at Sixers game. The Sixers have won 8 straight against the NJN and had a +15 point margin of victory average in their 4 games from 2011-12, so we are loving the -11.5 point line that Vegas has established for the Sixers tonight.
Sixers.com has a host of video from today’s shootaround that previews tonight’s game, including this interview with Jrue.
According to John Finger at csnphilly.com, you can forget those ideas about ‘Sheed coming home, but Francisco Elson will be in for a workout on Thursday.
Back to Lavoy…he was a guest on csnphilly.com’s “Lunch Break” show today.
In his latest power rankings, ESPN.com’s John Hollinger has the Sixers sitting pretty at #2.
