The rest of the season will be very, very important for the Philadelphia 76ers.
But how does the team plan to translate all of its potential into actual wins?
It sounds like head coach Doc Rivers has a plan.
Doc Rivers says the plan is for at least two of James Harden, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris and Tyrese Maxey to be out on the court at all times, to ensure Philadelphia has consistent offensive threats out there at all times.

Each of those guys are legitimate superstars and having at least a couple of them playing at all times will do a lot to help the team’s offense and will greatly increase their chances of success.
Still, is it enough?
Tough Times In The East
Rivers’ plan is about as good as it gets and really shows how great a coach he is.
However, it doesn’t guarantee they will beat everyone else in the Eastern Conference and make the Finals.
That’s because this year has one of the toughest, most competitive Easts in years.
The 76ers have a record of 35-23 and are currently number three in the standings.
But other teams like the Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, and Milwaukee Bucks aren’t going to make it easy for them to climb any higher.
Plus, other squads like the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics will do their part to make Philly’s life difficult.
With competition so intense and the records so close, any of these teams could end up on top in the end.
Philadelphia is putting together a great game plan moving forward but it remains to be seen if it leads to success.
