The Pacers play the Sixers in Philly in an effort to keep pace in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers play in Philly on Saturday night where they will also likely keep an eye on what is happening in Chicago where the Bulls host the Pistons.


After Detroit lost on Friday night, the Pacers need to win to maintain their lead over the Bulls and give themselves a chance to jump past the Pistons depending on who wins at the United Center.


Of course, the Pacers actually need to beat the Sixers and the way things are going of late, no win for the Pacers can be taken for granted. Frank Vogel claims he will shake up his playing rotation which shouldn't be a big risk against the Sixers. In fact, starting a smaller lineup would be smart considering Philly's health issues.


Philly will start Carl Landry at center with Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel both out, along with Jerami Grant.
