The Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers meet tonight in Philly, both trying to end two-game losing streaks. The Pacers should have the full roster available once again. It's about time that the full roster shows they can produce, you know, some WINS! Yes, Danny Granger, Marquis Daniels and T.J. Ford aren't 100 percent but they if theyare able to go they need to produce. Should be interesting to see if Granger shows any improvement with his knee since it is pretty easy to tell when the knee is bothering him.

Mike Wells finds the Pacers still focusing on the playoffs based on the math in the Eastern Conference and not their sub-.500 record.

As for Philly, it looks like Elton Brand is questionable at best after playing limited minutes in the past six games. Unfortunately the Sixers have caused the Pacers plenty of problems without Brand, so don't get too excited.

Here are the Matchups.
