Coming into this week, the Philadelphia 76ers saw their significant seven-game win streak end. Last Wednesday, the Sixers hosted the Charlotte Hornets and fell short of expanding their season-high win streak beyond seven games.
However, they bounced back two nights later. As the Sixers hosted the Boston Celtics, they didn’t have any issues dominating their Eastern Conference rivals and getting back in the winner’s column.
Not too long after defeating the Celtics, the Sixers were back on a flight and heading down to South Beach as they were set to take on the Miami Heat for the second night of a back-to-back.
Although Miami had an off night, the Sixers picked up an impressive win as the underdogs against the Heat on the road and made it two victories in a row.
To continue their mini-road trip, the Sixers returned to the court on Monday for an afternoon matchup against the Washington Wizards. While the Sixers found success against the Wizards a few weeks ago, Washington got revenge as they dominated the Sixers on Monday afternoon.
Starting the week off on a bad note, the Sixers had a favorable opportunity to bounce back against the struggling Orlando Magic on Wednesday. While the Sixers had a hard time in the first half, Joel Embiid kept his team afloat and went off for a 50-point performance to help the 76ers pick up another victory against an Eastern Conference opponent.
Now, the Sixers will host the Los Angeles Clippers for a Friday night matchup in South Philly. Friday will mark the first of two matchups between the Sixers and the Clippers this season.
