After tonight the sixers are the second best team in the East behind Miami. Please don't bring Atlanta into this conversation. I bet they beat the Hawks by 25 on Saturday

Speaking of credit, how about those 76ers whipping the Bulls tonight? Mind you it was in Philadelphia, but that was a very impressive win.
The Bulls look overrated to me

You mean missing 2 starters, on an 8-9 game road trip and playing in their 3rd game in 4 days vs. a rested 76ers.

I'm shaking in my boots.

Both Atlanta and Philly are 15-6 right now.

Atlanta is 8-1 at home, Philly is 11-2 at home. More home games to date than any team in the east. (And in the west 10-3 Utah, 2-4 on the road is going to come crashing to earth too)

Wait for it.....wait for it......

They definitely look to be the 3rd seed unless Boston can pull it together. I'd bet on Philly at this point. I actually am happy for them. Admittedly the only team in the east I actually enjoy tormenting is the Knicks. Otherwise I root for my Bulls and teams that are coming out of lean years.

Yeah I'm not sure why that is the case, I think they have had like 15 games straight at home with more coming up. Why?? Is this going to be the case for all teams?

I'd pick Atlanta to finish with the better record.

Sounds like you'd like to make me a wager?

Since you are so sure of yourself how many games you going to spot me with Atlanta?

Wager can be something basic like a week of our tag-line changed to...."lost a bet to TVand Sportsguy or Mathguy"

P.S. While the logic is lame...the 76ers lost to the Knicks.
