Tonight's game against the Raptors will mark the 80th time the Sixers lace it up this season. I can't believe there's only three regular season games remaining. It seems like just yesterday we we're drooling over Elton Brand and making lofty pre-season predictions. Things turned out differently than most expected, but all in all, it's been a very entertaining season.
The cool thing about it is, it's not over yet. The regular season might be, but the real season, the season that counts, is less than a week away. With that in mind, here's what I'm going to look for in these final three games with my sights set on the playoffs.
- The perimeter defense.
- Coach DiLeo's rotations.
- The continued development of the young guys.
- Playoff tune-up = cut down on turnovers, giving up open jumpers and coming out flat.
- The drop-off from the starters to the second unit.
