The team already looks brand new after just a few games back. Biggest Beneficiaries First off, the whole team obviously has a confidence boost after seeing Embiid take the floor and return to his dominant form. There’s no question that ..read more

As the season winds down to the last 10 games, the Sixers find themselves firmly in the 8th seed with little concern to go lower, and some optimism to move up. The Play-in Tournament For those of you still trying to figure out the play-in tourney rules, the winner of the 7 vs 8 seed game becomes the official 7th seed in the playoff bracket. The loser then plays the winner of the 9 vs 10 seed game to determine who becomes the official 8th seed for the playoffs. Right now, it looks like the Sixers will be playing in the 7 vs 8 game to hopefully become the seventh seed who will most likely face t ..read more

How A New Center City Arena Can Take the 76ers from the Brink to Brilliance. In 1963, the Syracuse Nationals moved to Philadelphia and became the 76ers. The Nationals had been NBA Champions in 1953–1954. Their arrival followed the void left by the Philadelphia Warriors, who had just left for San Fransisco. Upon arriving in Philadelphia in 1963, the 76ers took up residence in Philadelphia Arena and Convention Hall on Market Street. By 1968, the Sixers moved to the first version of The Spectrum. Could a move back to Center City be just what the Sixers need? Photo Courtesy of Wiki Commons Plans ..read more

After a few disappointing games, the Sixers rebounded against a bad Charlotte team which catapulted them to a victory over the Miami Heat. This game had huge playoff implications, with the Heat now at the 8 seed – one game behind the Sixers. Maxey’s Big Games After a sad performance against the Knicks, Maxey came back strong with 30 points in each of the last 3 games, with last night’s game against the Heat as his best. He tallied 10 assists to give him a double-double, while approaching a triple double with 8 rebounds. Maxey continues to grow and succeed while Embiid isn’t playing. Against th ..read more

Tobias Harris’ Rollercoaster Season

No one has seen more ups and downs in a season quite like Tobias Harris. His recent struggles have been hard for the Sixers to overcome, especially with the absence of Joel Embiid – and now Tyrese Maxey. Harris is the epitome of a rollercoaster player. We’re at the top  There have been many stretches in Harris’ career as a Sixer where he’s played like an all-star. This season, Harris is averaging 17.5 points on 49% shooting (35% from three), 6 rebounds, and 3 assists, which, on a stat sheet, isn’t bad at all. His impact on the team may not seem so prevalent on the court at times, but ..read more

This is Still the Same Tobias

Let’s all just take a chill pill on Tobias Harris. I get it. He scored a lot of points the last two games and was a significant factor in the Sixers getting two good wins. He played great. The only problem is, he has done this his whole time with the Sixers and his whole career before that. Last 10 Games Minus these last two games, Harris has scored over 20 points just one time. He averaged just 13 points per game in that 8-game stretch before games against the Hornets and the Mavs. Then, when you put those two games into the averages, voila, that average shoots up to over 16 ppg. 16 ppg is gr ..read more
