SIXERS BETTER BEAT CELTS, MAKE FINALS OR THERE’LL BE HELL TO PAY!

Says ESPN:

Josh Harris may be the owner of the Sixers, but that doesn’t preclude him from checking the standings every morning like every other NBA fan.

He’s well aware that if the season ended today, his Sixers and the Boston Celtics would play each other in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Harris also can do the math: His club is 2-9 against Boston over the past three regular seasons, and the Sixers were eliminated by the Celtics in the second round of the playoffs last year.

So how would Harris assess the season if Philly fell to Boston in the opening round in April?

“It would be problematic,” Harris answered. “Very problematic. It would not be what we’re playing for.

“We’d be unhappy. I’d be unhappy. The city would be unhappy. We’re going to work hard to make sure that doesn’t happen. We have enough talent on our roster that if we play the way we’re capable of playing, we can beat any team in the East.”
