The Philadelphia 76ers bounced back in a positive way after having their worst week of the 2020-2021 season last week. Following a four-game losing streak, the Sixers faced the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night.
While the Thunder are clearly the inferior team to the Sixers on paper, Philly needed a matchup against a lesser squad to regain their confidence. And it worked. By the time the fourth quarter rolled around, the 76ers were trotting out their reserves en route to a 121-90 victory to get back in the win column.
After a throwdown with the Thunder, the Sixers kicked off a two-game home series against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. Although the Hawks were quite shorthanded, missing their top star in Trae Young, the 76ers didn't cut them any slack.
It was another short night for the starters as the entire starting five played in less than 30 minutes of action. Eventually, the 76ers wrapped up the game with a dominant 127-83 blowout win over Atlanta.
On Friday, the two teams will meet once more for the final time this year. With the regular season series tied 2-2, Friday night's game will settle things between the Eastern Conference's second seed and fifth seed.
