Philly has the best record over that stretch, 8-0. The Pistons are tied with the second best at 7-1.
Their defensive ratings keep that same trend. Philly at number one, Detroit at number two.
The powerhouses of the league, the 76ers and Pistons. Yeah.
The 76ers have kept afloat despite Joel Embiid’s annual injury thanks to nice play from their bench. Pretty much every game, a bench guy has stepped up to give a big boost. Marco Belinelli, Ersan Ilyasova, Rashaun Holmes.
