We’re so used to understanding the 76ers. At least in the last recent years, a team loaded with talent overpaying extensively for contracts a coach in Brett brown who many believe didn’t have the slightest clue how to coach his team. Now just 16 games into the season the team holds an 11-5 record and the top seed in the Eastern Conference lead on the court by Joel Embid who on paper is having his best career start so far. Not only is Embid off to a thunderous start Tobias Harris and Seth curry have been lightning it up particularly from deep range as Harris notched 23 in The 6ers last win and Curry tallied 15. The team shot 55% in their second of two against Boston. It’s rather early in the season to plan playoff parties, especially when talking about the 76ers. But these 76ers seem like the chemistry and on-court consistency/direction the team desperately lacked the last few seasons may have turned a corner. The team core has a few seasons together that being Embid and Simmons but the team also is doing their best to transition their new signings, dealing with an injured roster earlier this year and safety protocol distractions. And of course who could forget New coach Doc Rivers whose resume is well respected as one of the best coaches in the league. The 76ers will make their way to Detroit Saturday night to take on a struggling Pistons team(3-12) as the 76ers will look for their third consecutive win. Joel Embid is unlikely and expected to rest with load management.
