The Sixers failed to record an above .500 week for the first time in a while, splitting a four game stretch thanks to a pair of frustrating losses to the Wizards and the Clippers, the latter of which they held a 24-point third quarter lead against a Los Angeles squad that was playing without Paul George and Kawhi Leonard.
Despite that, the Sixers are sitting in a pretty good spot, with a 27-19 record that's good for sixth place in the East, just 2.5 back from the conference leading Miami Heat, and with nine of their next 11 games at the Wells Fargo Center. That's good news in theory, at least. So far, the Sixers are just 10-10 at home on the season, compared to 17-9 on the road.
