Despite the great expectations in the start of the season, the Philadelphia 76ers have shown incredible luck of chemistry and balance from game to game.

Tobias Harris has addressed the issue during his appearance on ESPN’s “First Take”.

“I’ll just say, and I’ll keep it real, we haven’t had the best chemistry throughout the whole year,” said Harris, per Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia. “It took us a while to kind of get everyone together, we battled injuries from the start to the end. And right now, if we’re the sleeper, then we’re the sleeper. Truth be told, how we’re viewed, that’s someone else’s opinion, but I know when I look my guys in the eye and we have conversations, we have one goal in mind, and that’s to go out there and play and win a championship.

That’s the only view that matters to me,” he continued. “What people have to say about our team, I get it, because we haven’t met our expectations so far this year. But we have a new opportunity in Orlando to go out and just play ball, and really scratch a new surface of what we can accomplish.”

The Sixers were just sixth in the East at 39-26, before the season got suspended in March. Their inability to win away from home was the most problematic trait of their season with just 10 wins in 34 games.
