After a sluggish start to the season, the Philadelphia 76ers are showing the NBA why they have the depth to compete with the elite teams in the NBA.

The Sixers were again without a pair of starters, and two of their key reserves sat out Thursday’s game. Tobias Harris, Danny Green Furkan Korkmaz and Isaiah Joe all missed Philly’s 109-98 win over the Detroit Pistons.

In the latest episode of The 30, Jas breaks down why beating a lowly Pistons squad is still impressive for the undermanned Sixers.

He also touches on:

  • The team’s overall depth and how the bench players have stepped up all season.
  • Tyrese Maxey’s excellent performance.
  • Why the Sixers’ defense has been the key to their winning streak.
  • Why the hot start has softened the pressure of making a Ben Simmons trade.
