The Sixers won their 10th game yesterday and ran their record to 10-25, matching their win total from all of last year with 47 games to play.
So their young and talented rookie center made a comment afterwards that was not a joke:
Making the playoffs!
Embiid sees that the 76ers are eight games back of eighth place in the Eastern Conference, and believes that should be a goal.
“I think we have a chance. We’ve been hot lately,” he said. “We’ve won three out of four lately, so I look at it and I think we have a chance and we’re really figuring things out. We’re starting to learn how to win games.”
