The Indiana Pacers will have to suck it up and dig deep to find enough game to play with the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday night. For the second night in a row, Danny Granger, Marquis Daniels and Troy Murphy are expected to miss the game along with Mike Dunleavy. On top of that good news, the Pacers who did play last night logged some significant minutes in a double OT game.
Jeff Rabjohns had some great stuff in his post-game blog post at Pacers Insider including a great quote from Brandon Rush on dealing with such a physically draining back-to-back situation.
"I think we're going to be OK," Rush said. "A lot of guys like Jarrett, T.J. and all those guys played a lot of minutes. But I think we're going to bring it back to AAU ball when we play a lot of minutes, get up the next day and get ready for the next game."
Hopefully they won't play like an AAU team because an NBA effort will be required to have a chance.
