This week’s slate of games for the Philadelphia 76ers probably hasn’t gone the way the team envisioned when they kicked things off on Monday.

After picking up two impressive wins over the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat last weekend, the Sixers took a trip to Washington to face the Wizards for the second time this season.

Although the Sixers had success against the Wizards a couple of weeks ago, they struggled mightily on Monday afternoon and took on a blowout loss, which was their second defeat of the new year.

When they returned to South Philly on Wednesday, the Sixers got off to a slow start against the Orlando Magic. After shockingly trailing by ten points in the first half, Joel Embiid’s dominance helped the Sixers bounce back and snag a comeback win at home.

On Friday, the Sixers were well on their way to picking up a blowout victory over the Los Angeles Clippers, but a second-half collapse sent the final results of the matchup in a different direction. Picking up one of their toughest losses of the year, the Sixers knew they dropped the ball on Friday night.

Now, they are looking to re-group against a familiar opponent as they will face the San Antonio Spurs for the second time in a couple of weeks. During their first matchup against the Spurs, the Sixers nearly picked up a 20-point victory.

Can they bounce back and head to the winner’s column once again on Sunday night?
