After Saturday night’s results, the Sixers are back as the second seed

With the Philadelphia 76ers possessing the longest current winning streak in the NBA at eight games, and the Boston Celtics channeling Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and free fallin’ down the Eastern Conference standings, the unlikely has happened: the Sixers are currently the two seed in the East!

Thanks to the magic of percentage points, if the season ended today (it doesn’t), the Sixers would host a potential second-round playoff series between themselves and the rival Celtics. Both clubs are also only two games back of the Bucks for the top spot in the East, which is obviously huge in laying a path where you would only need to defeat, at most, one member of this Eastern Conference triumvirate in order to reach the NBA Finals.
