How will NBA participation affect the 76ers?
Before last year, after the regular season, every NBA playoff representative knew their opponent in the first round. Since this is no longer the case for the 2019-20 season of participating in the competition, the competition has continued until this season and will start its 2020-21 season on Tuesday.
As the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, the Philadelphia 76ers can meet any of the four players in the game. The Boston Celtics and Washington Wizards will compete in Game 7 vs. Game 8. The winner will get the seventh seed and avoid Philadelphia-instead dating the second seed Brooklyn Nets. Meanwhile, the Indiana Pacers will host the Charlotte Hornets in Game 9 vs. Game 10. The winner of this game will visit the Celtics-Wizards loser, and then any club that wins in the last game will occupy the last place in the traditional eight-team playoff spot. What followed was the first round against the 76ers.
Which opponent does head coach Doc Rivers’ team want to see in the opening series? Which one should it avoid? Let’s break down the quartet.
The Wizards were sentenced to death after the start of the 3-12 season, which included major coronavirus issues and dissatisfied Bradley Beal’s All-Star. But since then, Washington has created an impressive 31-26 record. Bill ranked second in the 2020-21 scoring competition with 31.3 points, second only to Stephen Curry. Russell Westbrook averaged a triple-double, 22.2 points, 11.7 points and 11.5 points per game. Recently, he broke Oscar Robertson’s career triple-double record. No one in their minds would like to see a team led by the Bill Westbrook duo in the playoffs-not even Philadelphia. This is not to say that the 76ers will be scared in any way. After all, they scored a perfect 3-0 in the regular season head-to-head series. Although two meetings were held in the first two weeks when Washington felt a headache, Philadelphia also took the advantage of 127-101 in the game on March 12.If the 76ers finally face Washington, Philadelphia may prove to be NBA’s best choice
The crew of head coach Doc Rivers also achieved similar success in the game against Boston. The 76ers won three games with no less than eight points. There is no reason to think that everything will change suddenly, because the Celtics do not have Jaylen Brown now. Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker and Marcus Smart are still a respected roster, but Brown’s absence is frustrating. Over .500 in the past 5 games, Boston has beaten 4-9 36-36 in the past 13 games.
All in all, you must think of Washington as a powerful country NBA Draft Defeated Boston and won the No. 7 seed in the East.
Both the Pacers and Hornets will be stronger than the Wizards or Celtics in the first round. For Indiana, point guard Malcolm Brogdon (ham hamstrings) and center Domantas Sabonis (quadriceps) were both skeptical about the beginning of the game. Charlotte regained LaMelo Ball’s wrist ahead of schedule, but Gordon Hayward missed the game due to a foot injury and was understaffed. Hayward is about to return, but his state is still unclear. Even if he is on the court, the first round of the playoffs may not be 100%. Either way, the Hornets have lost five games in a row, and there is no sign that any top teams in the playoffs are seriously troubled.
For good reasons, you can find the 76ers near the top
