The Philadelphia 76ers could clinch a final Eastern playoff spot tonight as they play the Indiana Pacers who are in the playoffs as the 3rd seed. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Pacers as -4 point favorites over the Sixers.
The Indiana Pacers look to extend their longest winning streak in eight seasons to 8 games tonight against the Sixers. Their last victory was a 118 to 109 win at home over the Milwaukee Bucks where they shot 47.3 percent from the floor and hit 7 out of 17 three-point shots while limiting their turnovers to nine. Indiana also spread the ball around much better with 24 assists to the Bucks 15.
Pacers Danny Granger led the game in scoring with 29 points to go with 5 rebounds, 1 assist ,a steal and a blocked shot. David West played great going 9 for 14 from the paint with 14 rebounds, and 7 assists. George Hill had 22 points on 8 for 12 shooting and hitting 2 of his 3 shots from behind the arc, to go with 5 rebounds, and 8 dishes.

The Philadelphia Sixers have won two straight just twice in two weeks with their last a 103-87 road victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. They earned the victory with some highly effective shooting going 52.4% from the floor and a astounding 9 for 15 from downtown. Philadelphia also outrebounded the Cavs 46 to 33 playing a physical game inside.
Phillys Jrue Holiday led the game with 24 points on 9 for 14 shooting to go with 5 dishes. Andre Iguondala scored 19 on 8 for 15 shooting and hitting three shots from behind the arc to go with 13 boards and 7 assists. Elton Brand scored 12 points while Thaddeus Young led the bench with 12 as well on 6 for 10 shooting.
NBA Betting Predictions: The Philadelphia 76ers need this game much more so than the Indiana Pacers but that certainly does not guarantee they will perform against Indiana who is streaking. I look for the Pacers to continue playing great ball right up into the playoffs , and look for them to grab a win tonight.
