Despite coming up short for the first time in 2022, the Philadelphia 76ers' hot streak continues. Going into their Wednesday night matchup against the Charlotte Hornets last week, the Sixers were on a seven-game win streak, which marked their season-high.

Unfortunately, they couldn't build on top of that as they fell short to Charlotte and picked up their 17th loss of the year. With the day off on Thursday, the Sixers had the opportunity to bounce back on Friday night with a matchup against their Atlantic Division rivals, the Boston Celtics.

Previously this season, the Sixers lost one game and won one game against the Celtics. On Friday night, the Sixers dominated and got a leg up on the competition. After defeating the Celtics, the Sixers jumped on a plane and flew down to Florida for a Saturday night matchup against the Miami Heat.

Despite being the underdogs and getting off to a slow start, the Sixers managed to take care of business on the road. With a win against Miami, the Sixers advanced to 25-17, and now possess the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference, sitting behind the Milwaukee Bucks, Miami Heat, Brooklyn Nets, and the Chicago Bulls.

On Monday afternoon, the Sixers will look to build on their record as they are set to face the Washington Wizards for the second time this year. A few weeks back, the Sixers' seven-game win streak started with a victory in D.C. Now, they'll look to continue their current streak with another matchup in the Nation's capital.
