76ers Vs. Pacers Game Thread: Indiana Looks To Step Up Game Against Philadelphia

25-17 24-16
March 14, 2012 - 7:00PM EST
Bankers Life Fieldhouse
Radio: 93.1FM WIBC TV: ESPN
Probable starters:
Jrue Holiday PG Darren Collison
Evan Turner SG Paul George
Andre Iguodala SF Danny Granger
Elton Brand
PF David West
Spencer Hawes C Roy Hibbert

The Indiana Pacers host the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in a game that will be televised nationally on ESPN.

The Pacers have a nice chance to post a strong win against a tough Eastern Conference foe. They lived off the signature road wins over Chicago and Dallas for a few weeks but really need another impressive win to push things in the right direction for the end of the season. Were the playoffs to start tonight, the Pacers would be in Philly for Game 1, so there is a strong chance the two will meet in the first round. With ESPN in the house, there should be no issues getting a playoff level effort tonight.

Philly has won three in a row and hope to have center Spencer Hawes back in the lineup tonight. Hawes has missed 26 of the last 28 games with an Achilles strain.

Here is the preview. For a Philadelphia perspective, check out Liberty Ballers. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
