Away game to start things up.
Will probably be a tough night for the Sixers. Perimeter D was dramatically reflected on the outcome last season, and it will be of special concern in this game as well, so lets see if Eddie Jordan made any adjustments there.
would have to harrass Dwight
, and try to frustrate him away from dunking even if he has to let Howard shoot the outside shot the baby hooks. Not too faithful in what Dumblembert can do here.
A key matchup will be Iguodala
. Let's hope Iguodala doesn't repeats last season's slow start, and can get it going right from day 1, as we need him tonight. Carter has got a trend for shooting the 3 quite efficiently in late years, so keeping him checked in the perimeter will be vital. Defending his slashing is also important, but I'm way more concernced to what he can do from mid/long range.
doesn't have a field day against Lou
, and that rather it goes the other way. Although with Howard patrolling Magic's paint, it's not as easy to cut through the middle.
is out serving a drug suspension.
