The Sixers have a one-game lead over the Brooklyn Nets and a 2 1/2-game lead over the Milwaukee Bucks as they prepare for tomorrow night’s game in Denver.
Philly traded for George Hill as they push toward the playoffs, and the Nets have added Blake Griffin and then on Saturday another former All-Star in LaMarcus Aldridge.
“I don’t worry about it, to be honest,” Sixers coach Doc Rivers said about the Nets moves.
“We’re kind of worried about ourselves and that’s all we can do. We like our team. We like who we are. We like how we play. So I don’t give it a lot of thought.”
The Sixers are 32-13, and 6-1 since Joel Embiid went down with the bone bruise.
