NEW YORK, NEW YORK USA

Monday March 13, 2023

SIZZLING SIXERS:

The Philadelphia 76ers began the season 12-12. Since then, they have an NBA-best 33-10 record.

Philadelphia has pulled within three games of the first-place Milwaukee Bucks and 1½ games of the second-place Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference. The

76ers play both teams one more time in the regular season. 76ers center Joel Embiid (33.4 ppg) and guard James Harden (10.8 apg) lead the NBA in scoring and assists, respectively. The last team to have the season-ending leader in both categories was the 1981-82 San Antonio Spurs with George Gervin (scoring) and Johnny Moore (assists).

Philadelphia takes a five-game winning streak into Week 22. The 76ers play seven of their next eight games on the road, starting Wednesday when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers (ESPN).

Cleveland is in fourth place in the East, 3½ games behind Philadelphia and three games ahead of both the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets.
