For coach Brett Brown, he and his staff have gone all-in on a lot of different aspects of his team during the hiatus.
“We ended March 11, since that time that we were told we’re not going to be playing anymore, we’ve been taking a deep dive into all aspects of our offense. We’re 3/4 of the way through our defense and after we’ve completed that, in the bullpen, we have Toronto, Miami, Boston good to go,” Brown explained. “We’ve taken significant studies on what that ultimately is going to look like.”
So, what does that work look like? There is so much to do in order to prepare for the playoffs and that is something that Brown and his staff have dived into. “A lot of work has been done with a handful of teams, those three teams especially so that we’re good to go when the situation arises.”
For reference, the Sixers went 3-1 against the Celtics, they were 1-3 against the Heat, and they were 1-2 against the Raptors.
