NBA Re-Boot Team Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

NBA Re-Boot Team Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

The NBA is coming back July 30 and not a moment too soon for basketball fans who have been deprived a proper conclusion to the 2019-20 season since Rudy Gobert’s positive coronavirus test March 11 that set off the worldwide cascade of sports league cancellations. Now, the NBA will look to finish what it started with a 22-team “bubble” at the Disney Resorts in Orlando, an eight-game finish to the regular season and four best-of-7 playoff rounds to determine a champion. We take a look at each of the teams involved as we move closer to the official return and today we’ll look at the Philadelphia 76ers team in our Sports Intel preview:

Philadelphia 76ers Team Preview 2019-2020 Re-Boot

(47-18, 6th in East, 4.5 games behind No. 3)

Where we left off:  The 76ers dropped five of their last ten heading into the NBA suspension.  When they were hot, they were really hot and outpaced their opponents by considerable margins.  However, Philadelphia never seemed to gain traction and its net rating was in the minus double-digit range before lineup changes took it back to the plus side.  If anything, the break will have proven highly beneficial to the team.

Remaining schedule: Aug. 1, Indiana Pacers; Aug. 3, San Antonio Spurs; Aug. 5, Washington Wizards; Aug. 7, Orlando Magic; Aug. 9, Portland Trail Blazers; Aug. 11, Phoenix Suns; Aug. 12, Toronto Raptors; Aug. 14, Houston Rockets.

Projected starting lineup: C: Joel Embiid, SG: Josh Richardson, SG: Shake Milton, PF: Tobias Harris, PF: Ben Simmons

Key injuries, absentees: SG Zhaire Smith (Knee)

Odds to Win Title: 28-1

Can they win it all?  The NBA Bubble will show whether or not 76ers head coach Brett Brown was able to put his house in order.  The team was up and down throughout the season prior to the break, winning most home games while losing most games on the road.  Brown hopes he has worked out the kinks by creating new drills and programs, and it’s now time to put his efforts to a live test.  Philadelphia has the talent to win the title, as long as Brown’s plans work.  Being able to swap Embiid with Ben Simmons will give consistency and let the 76ers take a shot at the title; however, it will most likely miss the net.

So, that’s all from the Sports Intel team in our preview of the Philadelphia 76ers ahead of the 2019-2020 season re-boot in Orlando. At 28-1 odds, we think that there are probably better bets online available right now in the NBA.
