Sometimes, it's best that you do nothing. That seems to be one lesson from the 76ers' strong start. Rod Thorn did little over the off-season other than draft Nikola Vucevic and dump Marreese Speights, giving his team both stability and solid chemistry when games finally began. The result is the fourth best record in the NBA at the quarter pole.

The Sixers have remarkable offense balance with eight players averaging between nine and 15 points a game, led by Louis Williams, Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young (all Billy King draft picks). Jrue Holiday rounds out the top four. The Sixers, 8-1 at home, will be without their two top big men, Spencer Hawes and Vucevic, putting ex-Net Tony Battie in the starting lineup once again. One problem for the Sixers: despite their record, new ownership and an aggressive marketing campaign, they are 27th in the league in home attendance. The Nets are 24th.

For the Nets, MarShon Brooks (tendinitis) will be a game time decision. DeShawn Stevenson (knee) was hurting in the Nets loss to the Bulls, but both Jordan Farmar and Anthony Morrow have been shooting the lights out from deep lately and should see a lot of action in the City of Brotherly Love.
