Sixers have some quality depth, but lack of a "go to" superstar will eventually be their downfall in the playoffs.

A good solid team though, should be pretty competent against a variety of styles.

I think the Boston resurgence is temporary and with a 5 game lead already it looks fairly good that the 76ers will probably be the 3rd seed.

If the Bulls and Heat wind up in the same bracket, you could see the 76'ers make it to the ECF. That's not wildly speculative especially with all the Bulls injuries right now....if the 76ers could get the 2 seed and Miami and Chicago are 1 & 3 that would do it.

The funny thing is the sixers only have 5 national televised games this season because of previous seasons. So that game against the Heat on Friday Night is not on national TV instead ESPN is airing the Knicks at Boston.

Is there Flexing in the NBA? lol

76ers are blown out tonight by the Heat for the second time this season. So it looks like the Heat is the only team in the East the sixers can't beat

Philly is 0-3 in their last 3 games against the Knicks.

Nice job.

How does it show a lot and the Hawks stink? Plus that was their second time beating the Hawks by double digits. So what are you talking about?
