The Sixers remain the top team in the East despite losing their last game to Cleveland. They were without Tobias Harris against the Cavs, and the forward remains questionable to play against the Pacers. Joel Embiid has also shown up questionable on Monday which would alter the odds for the Pacers without a doubt.
Of course, Embiid missed the last meeting between the two teams which saw the Pacers dump a lead and take one of the most frustrating L’s of the season which has suddenly become a competitive category for the Pacers.
Speaking of frustrating, it appears the Pacers will remain super short-handed if Malcolm Brogdon and Jeremy Lamb are unable to go. Brogdon sat out in New York on Saturday and Lamb joined him midway through the game. Both are questionable prior to playing the Sixers.
It is March 1st and the Pacers need some good news. After a couple of postponed games and three consecutive losses, the Pacers haven’t won a game since Feb. 17.
