The Sixers aren't the same team everyone was slurping (ayo!) during the first half of the season. They're backing into the playoffs and have plummeted from the third seed to the seventh. They received a bit of luck with the news of Dwight Howard's herneated disk which could give them a chance to move up (they're currently trailing Orlando by 3.5 games). But Philly has a challenging last week ahead which should tell us a lot about them. No one wants those last two spots in the East. —Angel Diaz
