Results Week 16: (2-2) Won vs. Grizzlies:119-107,  Bulls: 118-111, Lost vs. Heat: 106-137,  Bucks: 101-112
Games Week 17: (1 game)  Tues vs. Clippers

The 76ers made some minor low key signings at the deadline to add Alec Burks and Glen Robinson III in order to provide additional bench depth and shooting.

Yet, the main problem the 76ers have is winning on the road and with their starting unit who simply don’t fit well together. That trend continued this week with losses on the road to the Heat and Bucks and wins at home to the Grizzlies and Bulls.

In the win over the Bulls at week’s end, the fans and Joel Embiid got into a minor altercation over him taking a 3-point shot. He shushed the crowd. Additionally, Furkan Korkmaz was lit scoring 34 points and seven 3-pointers against the Grizzlies then 31 points with six 3-pointers against the Bulls. More on both these items next week.
