With the April schedule they have...they MUST win all their head-2-head matchups against Boston and NY so they have some padding.

Huge quality win (more like beat-down) for the 76ers heads up with Boston. <tips hat>

The Knicks, Celtics, and Sixers all have something in common

1. They all play their best ball at home

2. They don't play well against winning teams on the road

Well the 76ers proved this week that they will win the Atlantic Division because there is no other team in the division on their level which they showed by beating the Celtics on Wednesday and the Knicks earlier this afternoon. There is no more debate about who is the best team in the division after this week.

I wouldn't necessarily argue with that. However, those were MUST WIN games for Philly and remember that they have something like 10 road games and 3 home in the month of April.

In a wierd sort of way I'm saying that they are the best team in the atlantic BUT they might get snuck past in April if they aren't careful.

Well now we know that the knicks are no longer in the conversation after what they have shown the past 8 days. So that just leaves boston and right now they are 4 games back and could be more by the end of the month. So the sixers may lose a lot of those road games in april but since the celtics are so inconsistent the lead by that time will be too high for the sixers to be caught for the division lead.


BTW: The knicks will not be in the playoffs
