Lavoy Allen starting, Chase Budinger to Pacers' bench

Indiana Pacers forward/center Lavoy Allen will start and guard/forward Chase Budinger will move to the bench against the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

What It Means:

This should be taken lightly, as the Sixers announced Nerlens Noel would be coming off the bench, so Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel may decide to take a different approach. Allen isn't a recommended play regardless, nor is Budinger.

Allen currently has the 109th best nERD in the league, while Budinger's is 80th. Our models expect Allen to finish tonight with 7.2 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.2 blocks against the Sixers.
