The 76ers haven't improved much from years past and it's now getting to the point where teams are going to play Philly harder because nobody wants to be the team to give them their first victory. The Indiana Pacers aren't as good as some thought at least at this point, but they're good enough to beat the lousy 76ers by at least five points.
Indiana for the win and cover.
