The best team in the East for three weeks? The Bulls? The Nets? The Bucks? Negative, it’s the 76ers. The latter, easily repelling the Celtics last night, won a ninth victory in their last eleven outings with admittedly a relatively favorable schedule (Rockets x2, Spurs, Magic, etc.). What strengthen their record in the positive (24 wins – 17 losses) and have only three victories behind the leaders of their conference.
Of course, such a dynamic is enough to excite the team’s best player, Joel Embiid. ” When I look at where we are when we are almost complete, especially when I am there, we are at 21 wins and 9 losses, notice the pivot. It’s not bad, it’s one of the best records in the league. That’s what makes me say that we just have to stay healthy and keep going. »
And do not necessarily be tempted to upset a workforce that seems to have found its stride. ” I feel pretty good, and I don’t think we’ve played our best basketball yet. We still have a long way to go. We are missing guys here and there who could really help us. There’s really no rush to change anything. I think we got everything we need “, Continues the one who will soon receive his fifth invitation to the All-Star game.
Consistency from all
He is referring here to the situation of his teammate, with whom he has not yet had the opportunity to play this season, Ben Simmons. Negotiations for a transfer of the Australian seem to be at a standstill. It is therefore all but certain that he plays this season or that the 76ers find the desired counterpart by the transfer deadline of February 10.
So for Joel Embiid, the key, with the current formation, is that everyone is at their best level. Because when it does, I think we can beat anyone. We have seen it several times this year. We just gotta keep going, I gotta keep doing what I’m doing. Obviously, we need consistency from everyone, not just Tobias (Harris), Tyrese (Maxey), Seth (Curry) or Danny (Green), the guys coming off the bench, the return of Shake ( Milton) in good health. »
This night against Boston, only Shake Milton and Danny Green were missing.
