Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers are currently looking up at the top of the Atlantic Division, 4.5 games behind the New York Knicks after their loss on Wednesday night to the Chicago Bulls. That puts them in fourth in the division only a half-game behind the Brooklyn Nets and the Boston Celtics.

Both the Nets and the Celtics have identical 12-9 records and find themselves four games back of the division leading Knicks who play on TNT Thursday night against the Los Angeles Lakers at home. Bringing up the rear in the division is the Toronto Raptors who are 13 games back of the division lead thanks to a six-game losing streak.

The 76ers will try to make up some ground on Friday against the Indiana Pacers at Bankers Fieldhouse. Tip off on Friday is scheduled for 7 p.m. The game will be televised on Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia with radio coverage on 97.5 FM The Fanatic.
