MEMO TO SIXERS BED-WETTERS: HERE’S WHY THEY’RE SO GOOD!

By Tommy Matthews

The Sixers are in Portland tonight after running off three straight wins against the Jazz, Lakers and Clippers.

They are in third place in the East, a half-game behind Milwaukee and 4 1/2-games behind first-place Boston.

But Sixers fans are bed-wetters, pearl-clutchers:

Joel Embiid isn’t in shape!

James Harden is too old!

Doc Rivers has got to go!

Meanwhile, they have the league’s fourth-best defense, 10th-best offense and fifth-best overall net rating.

This despite the fact that Embiid, Harden and Tyrese Maxey all missed some significant time with injury issues.

Embiid has been playing at an MVP-level again, and Harden has been excellent as well, both as a scorer and a facilitator.

The Sixers are deeper than they have been in recent years, and as long as they can stay healthy they’ll have a chance to make a real run in the East this season.
