The Scouting Report
Having made the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, the 76ers once again find themselves on the cusp of the postseason, hovering near the middle of the Eastern Conference standings through 29 games. In the teams’ previous matchup this season, the Sixers swatted away the Hornets 77–62, landing field goals from midrange 17% more effectively than their season average.
In 1949, the Syracuse Nationals joined five other clubs from the Basketball Association of America to join in creating the original 17-team National Basketball Association. After the Warriors bolted for the West Coast in 1963, two Philadelphians bought the Nationals, and—following a name-the-team contest much like the one in which “Franklin World” narrowly lost to “The United States”—Philly’s new team adopted the 76ers moniker. In more than 60 seasons, the 76ers have made the playoffs 47 times and yielded a total of three championships—most recently in 1982–83, when the team won 65 games, the second most in franchise history.
