Do the sixers want to lose to the nets in the ecf?

It’s gonna to be an interesting week. If bucks win Tuesday night. It will tighten the race for the 1/2/3 seed if Sixers mess up the next two nights.

Besides today the only team over .500 we're playing is the Heat.

The Nets and the Bucks have a more difficult schedule, they have to play between each other one more time and we have 3 games over the Bucks right now. We're basically 2 games over the Nets too (if we win today), because we own the tiebreak.

We should be fine unless we have some absences again.

I wouldn't trade Ben straight up for Dame.

Dame is fantastic but no. Hell no.

Dame and Steph are organizational lifers. They don't make 'em like that no more.


Thankfully, we have one too.

This year is entirely unpredictable with the compacted schedule and health and safety issues, but the current Sixers squad has far more ability to go on a season ending streak of merciless and deeply efficient play. Team chemistry, depth and defense are major strengths now, unlike any of the BB years. Loved Brett, but this team is way more tuned up to play a contender role...again, with this being a tear when the goofiest crap can happen at any moment.

Also, i'm not worried about halfcourt offense against the nets. Giannis got 49 against them today.

Their defense is just bad.

Man we have a cupcake schedule the rest of the way. Should win every single one of them. Nets have Bucks, Mavs, Nugs lose two or one of them. We should get the 1 seed. Not worried about the Bucks.

HCA is our best route to the finals. We are crazy great at home.

Rooting for the Hawks to keep the Heat in 6th place. Would love for Bucks and Heat to meet in the first round.

lol, LeBron is one of the game's all time corniest losers. He's perfect for the Lakers and Laker fans.

It's hilarious to see opponents of the play-in fetishizing the 7 and 8 seeds as if they're sacrosanct. The number of teams that make the playoffs in basketball has been absurd compared to baseball and football. The fact is, the 8 seed has been a joke for most of my life and every year there's moaning about how pointless the first round is because of it. LeBron is right, you should have to earn your spot in the playoffs and 8 seeds almost never do, at least in the east.

The Lakers getting the play-in game will be the funniest thing that has happened this season.

He's going to be a major problem for that Nets team in a 7 game series, which is why that #1 seed is so huge.

Big white opposing center on a back to back OT game. Sounds like a loss for the 76ers, but if we can't help our own cause and just expect everyone else to do the heavy lifting for us, then we don't deserve the #1 seed.
Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste.

You want it to be one way....but it's the other way.

Bucks are the best all-around team in the East, but they're still over-reliant on a subpar creator dominating such a high percentage of their offensive possessions. Just like every other postseason, they'll only go as far as the degree to which Giannis is willing to defer to their superior shotcreators (Middleton/Holiday).

They’re the team i fear the most. I do think they’re the most equipped team to beat us.

Giannis not going after the MVP. Their team not going after regular season win loss record, kind of make them scarier for me,

Biid has to have a stellar shooting performance in a 7 game series against them because he wont be able to rely on his inside game when Brolo is in the paint while Giannis (who’s defending Ben) is providing help defense.

Bucks can also play a 2 man game with Jrue-Brolo where they can exploit Biid’s not that good PnR defense. Brolo can pull Biid out.

I find that there are just loses that pivots a franchise. Loses that makes them realize things. And I do think a lose against the Bucks will do that for us.
