The Pacers and 76ers both have the potential to make the playoffs and compete for a fifth seed. Both also have the potential to fall out of the postseason picture altogether by the trade deadline.
That’s how mercurial these two teams could end up being throughout the year, but it’s also a bigger-picture sign of what the state of the Eastern Conference looks like at this time.
As far as Friday night is concerned, these two enter with big wins in their recent past. The Pacers took down the Cleveland Cavaliers, while the Sixers got revenge against the Houston Rockets.
The Pacers are doing something incredible. Actually, they’re doing a few incredible things.
For starters, they’ve turned Victor Oladipo into a completely different player. The Pacers are his third team, and yet, he’s just now coming into his own and performing incredibly well in a system that is traditionally uninspiring.
The next thing Indiana’s doing that’s impressive is they’re actually winning. After they traded Paul George, there was an overwhelming sentiment that this squad would be lottery-bound, if not headed toward the bottom of the conference.
The final thing that should shock the world is that they’re doing all this without Myles Turner. The man in the middle has played just a single game this season, yet the Pacers have found success to start the year.
Against Philly, the strategy will be to let Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid get their numbers, so long as role players such as J.J. Redick, Robert Covington and T.J. McConell don’t get going in a significant way.
Letting the role players in Philly get going is the No. 1 way to drop a game against a young and hungry franchise.
Philly doesn’t necessarily need big-time showings from their role players to come away with a win. That’s how impressive Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid have been this season.
That said, it’s going to be a heck of a lot easier to come away with a win straight up if they can get the aforementioned role guys to put up numbers in efficient fashion.
Defensively, the Sixers need to make life rough on Oladipo, but they also need to put pressure on Domantas Sabonis.
Sabonis has been another pleasant surprise for the Pacers, but taking him out of his element should be enough to rattle him early in his breakout season.
