The Philadelphia 76ers have their sights set on improving their seeding once the league resumes.  The 76ers are in 3rd place in the Atlantic, with a record of (39-26).  Philadelphia is 3 games back of Boston for 2nd in the Atlantic.  The 76ers are collecting 109.6 points per game, while allowing 107.4 per contest.  Philadelphia is allowing the 6th fewest points per game.  The 76ers have been paced by Tobias Harris, since Joel Embiid has missed time this season.  Let’s take a closer look at the roster, games left on the schedule, and current odds. 

Roster Breakdown: Harris is recording 23.4 points per contest, while pulling down almost 7 rebounds per game.  Ben Simmons has had a balanced stat line all year, as the LSU product has produced a stat line of: 16.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 8.2 assists.  Joel Embiid was putting together another solid season, as the center was averaging a double-double through 44 games.  Embiid was registering 23.4 points and 11.8 rebounds on average. 

Remaining Schedule: vs. Indiana Pacers, Washington Wizards, Toronto Raptors, Portland Trail Blazers, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic, and San Antonio Spurs.

Help or Hurt: This break has helped the 76ers for more reasons than one.  However, the big reason is because it has allowed Embiid to rest and get healthy.  The 76ers are obviously a different team when Embiid is in the lineup.  The center has missed 21 games this season and an extended break should pay dividends to the 76ers.  Philadelphia doesn’t have a brutal schedule once play resumes. Look for the 76ers to put together a solid stretch of games, to hopefully improve their current seed of 6th come playoff time. 

Odds: The Philadelphia 76ers are currently +900 to win the Eastern Conference Finals, while having odds of +2700 to win the NBA Finals Championship.  The 76ers will be looking to improve their seeding in the final 8 games, which will ultimately have a say in how the postseason could go.  The 76ers have plenty of talent, but staying healthy will be the question. If the 76ers stay healthy, don’t be surprised to see Philadelphia make a run in the postseason.
