NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Philadelphia 76ers Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

FanPulse is a weekly ballot that goes out to SB Nation hoops fans who have signed up to participate. If you would like to sign up to receive a ballot each week, you can do so here.

SB Nation’s FanPulse resulst are in for the NBA regular season’s week 17 and Sixers fans are restoring their faith in the team. After December and January ended in disappointment, confidence is rising in the Sixers, with fan support trending up toward 75%.

The Sixers’ winning streak heading into the All-Star break undoubtedly eased many concerns. The streak saw modest wins over the Memphis Grizzlies and Chicago Bulls to start, but finished off with an impressive 110-103 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Now, Brett Brown and company will get an opportunity to extend their streak with a match up against the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday.

One FanPulse topic I was particularly interested in questioned fans’ interest in the All-Star Game’s new format (the Elam Ending). Almost 80% of voters said that the new format improved the All-Star game.

Don’t forget to sign up for FanPulse to take part in community votes. Liberty Ballers readers can select the Sixers as their team so that they’re sent questions regarding the Sixers specifically.
