Article Summary:

You play who’s on the schedule, and the Sixers beat up on their schedule better than any other team in the conference.

Outside of the obvious answer in MVP candidate Joel Embiid, which Sixer do you think is going to be the X-Factor during the playoffs?

Tyler Monahan: I think the player that is going to be a much bigger factor in the playoffs than he was in the regular season is Seth Curry. If he’s not helping the Sixers too much offensively from the perimeter and making it so the Sixers are playing 4-on-5 or 3-on-5 with Ben Simmons on the floor, it’s going to be very hard to keep him on the floor and either Green, Curry or Korkmaz will have to be used more for spacing purposes while sacrificing defensive intensity. An ECF run, after the slog of last season, should not be dismissed, especially with the Sixers’ core – players, coaches and front office – in place for the long haul.
