Believe it or not, the NBA season is getting closer to being over and that means that certain teams like the Philadelphia 76ers need to become even more focused.
The 76ers are currently the third-best team in the East, which is the best position they’ve been in for the last couple of seasons.
All year long, they have promised fans that they are going to fight harder than ever to make it to the Finals.
So far, they have been doing quite well.

But the last month-and-a-half of the regular season counts more than any other period.
During this last stretch of time, the 76ers will have 25 games in 45 days.
15 of those games will be away from home and 8 of them will be against teams below .500.
They will also battle some of the biggest squads in the NBA: they have two games against the Boston Celtics, two against the Milwaukee Bucks, three against the Miami Heat, and two against the Dallas Mavericks.
This all means that the 76ers are going to have to fight hard over the next 45 days.
They have already done better than some people expected with their 38-19 record.
A huge part of this success has been because of the great pairing of Joel Embiid and James Harden.
The two stars are working well together and experiencing limited injuries.
As good as Philadelphia has been so far, there are many concerns about them keeping it up.
Just a couple of seasons ago, they were the top team in the East at the end of the regular season.
As we all know, that didn’t result in them making the Finals.
Fans are cautiously optimistic that this year could be different.NEXT: NBA Insider Says The 76ers May Lose A Major Star
