The amazing victory against the Bucks had deluded everyone. A game in which the Sixers were practically perfect, both in attack and defense. But after that great performance, the Sixers have lost three games in a row against Magic, Heat and Pacers.
What’s the Philadelphia problem? The team’s problem seems to be inside the locker room. It is obvious that something is wrong. Even last season Phialdelphia was credited as a team that could aim for the title, however on the best moment, they did not make it. The Sixers were stopped by Kawhi Leonard’s shot in Game 7 in the Conference semifinal.
The first who publicly highlighted these dressing problems was newcomer Josh Richardson. “I don’t think there is enough reliability in our locker room at the moment. We have some new players, as I am. I feel like we’re going to play without competing hard. There have been good matches in which we fought and we did well. But when things don’t work out, we have to be reliable with each other. I think the locker room is where most of our problems begin”.
Now that the problem has been revealed, what the team has to do is tackle it and try to solve it. The Sixers now have a great chance to do it against Houston Rockets.
