The Pacers need to focus on what they can control which on Monday is beating the Sixers in Philly.

NBA: Indiana Pacers at Philadelphia 76ers John Geliebter-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers’ regular season is down to two games and a pair of wins guarantees the post-season play. You can’t win two unless you win the first one, so the Pacers will try to push their winning streak to four games when they visit the Sixers at Wells Fargo Cetner.

The Sixers added Sergio Rodriguez (hammy) to their lengthy injury list which now includes Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor, Robert Covington and Ben Simmons. One player of interest is Alex Poythress who spent most of the season in Fort Wayne after joining the Pacers for training camp. Poythress has played the last for games for Philly averaging about 25 minutes, 8 points and 5 rebounds.

As for the Pacers, Al Jefferson tweaked his ankle on Sunday and is questionable which shouldn’t impact the Pacers. With Jefferson out, Kevin Seraphin has taken advantage of the opportunity and has been quite productive as a back-up center with smaller lineups since Lance Stephenson arrived.

Gotta win!!!
