Tuesday, May 11th the Philadelphia 76ers and Indiana Pacers play for the third and final time this season. The 76ers won both prior matches on January 31st (119-110) and March 1st (130-114).
The teams have played a total of 185 occasions in their history with the 76ers winning 103 contests. Last season, the clubs played four times with Indiana winning three of the four contests.
If there is one team that are surging at the right time it might be the Philadelphia 76ers who bring an eight-game winning streak into the final week of play.
Their position on the top rung of the Eastern Conference appears cemented with a three-game edge over the suddenly slumping Nets and four games over the Bucks following their loss on Tuesday to the Spurs.
Each of the trio, has four games remaining with the 76ers facing the Pacers and Heat on the road then finishing at home with two games versus the Magic.
In the win versus the Pistons, Joel Embiid led the way with 29 points while Dwight Howard offered a double-double of 19 points and 14 rebounds.
Although Doc Rivers won’t want to mess with chemistry these games offer an opportunity to rest his core or limit their minutes.
Joel Embiid is listed as questionable for Tuesday with a non-COVID-related illness. Furkan Korkmaz (ankle sprain) and Matisse Thybulle (left hand soreness) are out.
Last week was rough for the Pacers. They lost consecutive games to the Wizards and were knee-deep in turmoil internally as tensions between players and head coach Nate Bjorkgren led to whispers he might be fired at season end.
Fortunately, a new week has brought a fresh start and a change of fortune. Indiana had fallen to the 10th seed and was in jeopardy of being caught by the Bulls.
One game later and much has changed as the Pacers defeated the Cavaliers while the Wizards lost to the Hawks and the resulting effect is the two teams swapped positions yet again.
In the victory, Domantas Sabonis registered a massive double-double of 21 points and 20 rebounds and was joined by Caris LeVert with his double-double of 20 points and 10 assists.
Kelan Martin reached a career-high 25 points while Doug McDermott (13), Justin Holiday (11), and T.J. McConnell (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Malcolm Brogdon missed his six-game with hamstring issues and remains day-to-day. Jeremy Lamb (knee), JaKarr Sampson (concussion), MylesTurner (toe) were all out Monday while TJ Warren (foot fracture) is done for the season
Indiana resides in ninth with a half-game lead on the Wizards, are a game back of the eighth-place Hornets with a magic number of two to clinch participation in the play-in tourney.
