NEW YORK -- The Philadelphia 76ers will not be throwing any major parties when they get their 10th win of the season. When it occurs, it will be noted as representing progress in the rebuilding or Joel Embiid will tweet: "Trust the Process".
The second chance to match last year's win total occurs Sunday afternoon when the 76ers visit the Brooklyn Nets.
Through 34 games, the 76ers (9-25) have six more wins than last season and four more than 2014-15, which ended with 18 wins. Embiid sat in those seasons due to foot injuries but is a significant reason for Philadelphia's slight improvement this season.
The 76ers began this season with 18 losses in their first 22 games. Philadelphia stopped an eight-game losing streak with an 11-point win over the New Orleans Pelicans Dec. 8 and it started a stretch of five wins in 13 games. >> Read more
