The Philadelphia 76ers have a lot of talent on the offensive end of the floor led by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Embiid is the go-to guy on offense who has absolutely dominated all season. Simmons, despite his lack of scoring, does everything else for the team on offense.
Surrounding the star duo is a cast of shooters who know how to get the job done. They have proven players Seth Curry and Danny Green as well as Tobias Harris who has continued to blossom under coach Doc Rivers. All of those factors equal a high-powered offensive attack.
The Sixers have scored at least 120 points in six of their first eight playoff games. They are the fifth team in NBA history to do so, and three of the first four went on to win the title.
The Sixers, the No. 1 seed in the East, have a very good chance of replicating the success of those three teams that went on to win the championship. The road will not be easy, but with the leadership of Rivers, Embiid and Simmons, they will have a shot to win this season.
