Philadelphia 76ers prep for play-in tournament amidst playoff picture shuffle

Posted : 15 April 2024

Following their comfortable 107-86 victory over the Brooklyn Nets in their season finale, the Philadelphia 76ers found themselves closely monitoring the New York Knicks-Chicago Bulls game, which would determine their potential first-round opponent. Ultimately, the Knicks secured a thrilling 120-119 overtime victory, setting up a likely matchup with the 76ers.


Now relegated to the play-in tournament by the Orlando Magic's victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, the 76ers are preparing for Wednesday's Nos. 7-8 play-in game against the Miami Heat. Coach Nick Nurse emphasizes the team's positive mindset and determination to maintain their recent strong performances as they face the Heat.


Despite finishing in a tie with the Orlando Magic and the Indiana Pacers, the 76ers were edged out of higher seeding due to tiebreakers. Orlando claimed the fifth seed by winning the Southeast Division, while Indiana secured the sixth seed by winning the head-to-head tiebreaker against Philadelphia.


Despite ending the season with eight consecutive wins, the 76ers settled for seventh place in the Eastern Conference standings. Meanwhile, the New York Knicks secured the second seed with their victory over the Bulls, setting the stage for an intriguing playoff matchup. As the 76ers brace for the play-in game, concerns linger over the health of key players, including MVP Joel Embiid, who missed Sunday's game as a precaution.
