The Sixers have improved drastically on the road this season
The Sixers’ road woes last season were well documented, they were seemingly a different team away from the Wells Fargo Center. The team was nearly unbeatable at home last season, posting a record of 31-4 on their home floor. Away from the Center was a completely different story, however, having a road record of just 12-26.
The Sixers have turned that around this season as they currently hold one of the best road records in the NBA:
There could’ve been many reasons as to why the Sixers were abysmal on the road last season: poor travel routines, long road trips, no real structure under Brett Brown, who knows. Regardless of the reasoning, the Sixers seem to have rectified their road struggles under Doc Rivers. That’ll certainly bode well for them in the postseason, even with home-court advantage.
