The Philadelphia 76ers have been mentioning that they want to shoot more 3-pointers heading into the 2021-22 season to keep up with the trend around the league of more triples being launched per game.
In the 2020-21 season, the Sixers attempted 30.1 triples per game which was good for only 26th in the league. The Sixers were still able to score enough to earn the No. 1 seed in the East as they relied more on Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris to drive the offense, but in the 2021 preseason, the Sixers are letting it fly from deep. The Sixers have more than capable shooters that need to take the open looks they are receiving.
