Conrad Brunner

Even with Noel, not sure tonight's #Sixers have enough to win D-League. And yet they're beating the #Pacers at halftime.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead #Pacers 48-44 with 2:08 left in half

Bob Cooney

Sixers 26-12 advantage points in paint

Derek Bodner

Reminder: I'm starting a weekly #sixers mailbag tomorrow. Send me your questions and I'll try to get them in.

Bob Cooney

Now every big man for Sixers has at least 2 fouls.

Bob Cooney

Davies has 3, Noel 2 and Sims 2. Big man foul trouble for Sixers

Keith Pompey

Lavoy Allen in for Pacers. Sixers up 22-13 with 2:57 left in first

Candace Buckner

Lavoy Allen checking in soon, and #76ers coach Brett Brown does a nice thing, stopping by scorer's table to shake his hand

Derek Bodner

The Pacers have like half a ball handler still healthy. The #sixers success isn't entirely unexpected.

Keith Pompey

Wroten is the lone first-round pick on the floor right now for the #Sixers

Candace Buckner

We know offense will come & mostly go this yr - but it's the lack of interior defense that's gotta be more annoying. #76ers 16 Pts in paint

Candace Buckner

That second effort from the #76ers (offensive rebound and layup) makes Vogel call timeout. #Pacers have scored 11 points at the 4:14 mark

Bob Cooney

Sixers 8-12 from floor, have forced 6 turnovers. Up 16-11

Jesus Morales

Quintetos del Sixers-Pacers que está en juego ahora mismo. Sí, sí, de la NBA. http://t.co/MvdOkhAz5I

Conrad Brunner

#Sixers already have 14 points in paint against the Greatest Rim Protector in NBA History.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 12-9 with 6:20 left in first quarter. Noel 2 fouls, Sims 2 and Davies 1.

Candace Buckner

Brett Brown calls timeout with his #76ers ahead 12-9 at the 6:20 mark of the 1st Q. Scola leads #Pacers w/ 4 pts, but also has 2 TOs

Bob Cooney

Three Sixers big men already have 5 combined fouls. Brown just looked down bench, but no options there, really

Keith Pompey

Oh, well. Sixers went on to miss two straight shots and then committed an offensive foul

Tom Moore

First sub of #Sixers season is Brandon Davies. Yikes.

Kurt Helin

Pacers vs. Sixers. Someone must win. It's the rules.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers shooting 80 percent (4-for-5) and lea8-5d

Bob Cooney

Sixers triple team Hibbert in post then give up wide open three

Keith Pompey

I know it's early, but the #Sixers are shooting 66.7 percent (2-for-3)

Candace Buckner

Turnover on #Pacers first possession. Scola immediately fouls to stop the #76ers fast break

Justin Verrier

76ers-Pacers is a discotheque of sadness.

Derek Bodner

#sixers win tonight. Definitely feeling it.

Conrad Brunner

#Sixers counter with Tony Wroten, Hollis Thompson, Christapher Johnson, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims.

Derek Bodner

#sixers were only team in NBA history w/a -10.6 or worse SRS and more than 15 wins. That, plus Noel vs Sims 1-on-1: libertyballers.com/the-liberty-be…

John Mitchell

No tanks: Larry Brown rips Sixers' plan po.st/msbjOi via @phillysport

Candace Buckner

#76ers know that Indy is short on point guards and head coach Brett Brown won't mind pressuring the mess out #Pacers ball handlers...

Candace Buckner

#76ers starters = a trio of 3-year players, a rookie & a sophomore. So, there will be no chill when it comes breaking conventional NBA laws

Gary Washburn

Chris Johnson goes from being waived by #celtics to opening night starter for #76ers

Alex Kennedy

I think most fans would only recognize 3 of the 10 starters in tonight's Pacers-Sixers game (Hibbert, Scola, Noel) if they walked by them.

Mark Montieth

Sixers have injuries, too. Michael Carter-Williams, Joel Embid, Jason Richardson among 5 players out.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers starters: Tony Wroten, Chris Johnson, Hollis Thompson, Nerlens Noel, Henry Sims. #Pacers #NBA #PHILA

Bob Cooney

Chris Johnson Sixers fifth starter. Noel, Sims, Wroten and Thompson

Candace Buckner

On the flip side, Nerlens Noel will also make his NBA debut tonight w/ the #76ers. Noel missed all of last year with a torn ACL

Sean Highkin

good god RT @Alex Kennedy: Tony Wroten, Hollis Thompson, Chris Johnson, Henry Sims and Nerlens Noel will start for the Sixers tonight

Alex Kennedy

Sixers-Pacers will be a, uh, defensive struggle, to say the least.
