In a clash between Atlantic and Southwest division leaders, the resurgent Philadelphia 76ers look to notch another victory on their already impressive win column against the grizzled San Antonio Spurs. Philly’s young and speedy backcourt, led by dish-master general Jrue Holiday and budding slasher Evan Turner, will strive to outlast the Spurs’ offensive onslaught and multilingual trash talk lead by former All-Stars Manu Ginobli and Tony Parker. Andre Iguodala, a member of Team USA’s gold medal-winning squad at the 2010 World Championships, spoils fans with high-arcing swishes and rim-rattling dunks. In order for Tim Duncan’s Spurs to prevail against the 76ers, they must first overcome the NBA’s third-best defense (88.5 points allowed per game) anchored by Elton Brand, who habitually blocks shots and hosts therapy sessions for opponents that have trouble dealing with rejection.
Between breaks in the action, the all-new Sixers Dream Team dazzles basketballs fans with energetic dance routines, impressive flexibility, and sequined outfits. When crowd members aren’t watching Iggy trying to shatter the backboard with tomahawk slams and high-pitched yodels, they can scan the floor for courtside celebrities, which have included DJ Jazzy Jeff and Bow Wow.
