Article Summary:

The Philadelphia 76ers are currently on an upward swing winning seven games in a row, but they are also dealing with some down play from their bench unit recently.

The Sixers have been playing some lesser teams that have allowed themselves to build big leads, but the bench unit has not been able to sustain those leads and coach Doc Rivers has had to reinsert his starters in three of the past four games.

In Friday’s win over the New Orleans Pelicans, the Sixers built a 17-point lead, but the bench unit was not able to keep it and Philadelphia’s starters had to come back in and seal the deal.

“I thought the bench unit, their biggest problem is defense,” Rivers explained.
