The Philadelphia 76ers have hit the skids, losing their last five games. They seemed primed to run away with the Atlantic Division, but their recent losing streak, coupled with a bit of Linsanity, have the Sixers just 3.5 games ahead of the New York Knicks after the All-Star break.
Philadelphia will face a Detroit Pistons squad on Tuesday that had a bit of success in February, but is still a 11-24 squad with a lot of youth. If they don't win, the Sixers will have to beat either the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday, or the Chicago Bulls on Friday to end their schneid. Neither game will be easy by any stretch, but at least both games will be played at the Wells Fargo Center.
