HERE’S WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SIXERS AS THEY HEAD TO THE BUBBLE!

Says Rob Mahoney of The Ringer:

Ben Simmons has had crucial—and unexpected—time to recover from a back injury.

Joel Embiid has worked his way through quarantine, so much that Brett Brown expects to see his star center “in as good as shape as I have coached him.”

Philly is a confusing team, but Brown and his staff have had months to review and adjust the team’s methods to the extent the roster will allow. The argument could be made that no team has benefited more from a lengthy stoppage in play.

The peculiarities of the Sixers roster, however, mean that some of their on-court issues will always need to be worked out in real time.

Games and series will come down to Simmons, Embiid, and Tobias Harris troubleshooting on the fly; when Al Horford plays, and with whom; and whether an interchangeable cast of perimeter talent has the juice to sustain the offense in high-leverage moments.

There may be too many balls in the air, as it were, and not enough in the hands of a proficient, off-the-dribble creator.
