Although it’s still early in the season, there are big reasons for optimism in Philadelphia. The 76ers currently sit in playoff position in the Eastern Conference at 7-6. Last season, they didn’t win their seventh game until Dec. 18. They had two extended losing streaks of seven and eight games respectively up to that point. With the season starting off so well, the expectations have clearly changed. “Playoffs, it’s simple as that,” Anderson told Basketball Insiders. “The biggest thing is just continuing to realize that whatever happened in the past, record and all of that, it’s in the past. We’ve done away with it and we’ve moved on. We’re trying to create something good, and we’re on track.”

Damian Lillard says that teams can no longer face the Sixers without expecting a fight. “I think in the past we took them lightly. They kind of jumped out and played hard and they beat us,” Lillard said following a Tuesday-evening practice at the Sixers training complex in Camden. “This year, you have no choice but to respect what they’ve done and how they’re playing. They’re not doing it like it’s luck, they’re out there hooping.”
Despite the rolled ankle, noticeable discomfort, and around-the-clock treatment, Lillard seems determined to face the Sixers. Lillard, who did not participate in practice, said he is looking forward to the matchup. “I told y’all that yesterday,” Lillard said, referring to previously saying he planned on playing in Philadelphia. “I pretty much got babied last night so it was good…I feel good.”
