CBS Sports


Article Summary:

Ahead of the rest of the season, here’s a look at where things stand in the Eastern Conference:

The top contenders

Philadelphia 76ers: The 76ers enter the All-Star break in first place in the Eastern Conference for the first time since 2001. That’s about a 51-win pace in a normal 82-game season, which is pretty much exactly where they were at last season. New coach Tom Thibodeau has them locked in on the defensive side of the ball, first-time All-Star Julius Randle is in the midst of a breakout season and rookie Immanuel Quickley has become a fan favorite in record time. With LaVine leading the way, the Bulls are on pace for their best season since 2017, which was the last time they made the playoffs.
