Thursday, January 17 finds the Philadelphia 76ers facing the. Indiana Pacers as they meet for the third time in the 2018-19 regular season. Both teams last played on Tuesday, each blowing out their opponent. The 76ers hosted the Timberwolves in the first meeting since the Butler trade and blew out Minnesota 149-107. Similarly, Indiana bested the Suns 131-97.
In three games last season the Pacers held the 2-1 edge while the clubs have split their two matches this year. The 76ers hold the all-time record having bested the Pacers in 98 of their 177 matches.
No doubt the reception will be different when Butler makes his lone trip to Minnesota at the end of March, but on Tuesday it was the 76ers who sent a message in the beat down they put on the Wolves.
Butler’s new tandem Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons each registered double-doubles while seven different 76ers scored in double-digits.
Philly scored 40 points in the first quarter to take a 13 point lead then followed it up with a 43 point second quarter to take an 83-58 half time lead.
Embiid loves these matches against other big men like Karl-Anthony Towns who he easily took to school via his 31 point and 13 rebound effort.
For as much as the new big three in Philly are excelling the struggle on the road (10-12) and their depth is still suspect.
Overall the 76ers are relatively healthy although Markelle Fultz (shoulder), Justin Patton (foot) and Zhaire Smith (Jones fracture, allergies) remain out with no definitive return date.
Playing to their identity Indiana routed the Suns building a 19 point lead in the first quarter alone and never looked back.
Myles Turner returned to the lineup which aided the Pacers in holding the Suns under 100 points and he was one of seven Pacers scoring in double-digits.
Ironically, the star of the team (Victor Oladipo) was the lone starter who failed to reach this mark while Bojan Bogdanovic and Tyreke Evans led the way each scoring 20.
Taking advantage of an early strength of schedule the Pacers have feasted on sub .500 clubs. Their issue has been defeating elite teams particularly those who they are fighting to beat in the East.
The Pacers have lost three times since December 19th but unfortunately, two of those losses were to the Raptors and once to the Celtics.
