This short month starts off fairly easy, with the Hornets and Pacers. They should be able to win one of those, and possibly take a game against the Pelicans, depending on if they’re able to rest starters yet or not (probably not, but we’ll think wishful and give Philly the win anyway). The Knicks and Bucks are both games that should be won, but the last two, Raptors and Bulls, may not be won, unless they have playoff spots locked and are resting starters.

Prediction: 4-3 Overall: 34-48

Not a terrible record. I did some wishful thinking with some games, but if the chemistry is right between everyone, 30+ games is a goal we could possibly see becoming reality. While that probably won’t get the Sixers into the playoffs, we haven’t seen what the year has in store. The trade deadline could really shake things up.

We’ve got lots to look forward to in the next several years, and this really appears to be the first step in the right direction. Overall, the schedule wizards faired nicely in the Sixers favor, and gave them a neutral schedule with stretches of easy games that could leave them with more wins than they should have had.
