Where the game will be won or lost
The Philadelphia 76ers will look to snap their two-game losing streak on Sunday afternoon.
The Sixers are currently in fourth place in the Eastern Conference playoff standings, and they are one game behind the Pacers for third.
Philadelphia was without All-Star center Joel Embiid (left knee) for an eighth straight game and Boban Marjanovic (right knee) for a fifth consecutive game.
Embiid will likely sit against the Pacers as well.
The Sixers have won two out of three against the Pacers this season. Philadelphia is 25-9 at home this season and they will open up a three-game homestand when they take on Indiana.
The Pacers are still clinging onto the No. 3 seed even without guard Victor Oladipo, who is out for the season with an injury. This will be a huge game for playoff implications.
