In case you were overwhelmed with Christmas presents or too busy watching the Mummers strut their stuff, we wanted you to know that the 76ers just finished a six-game road trip in which they assembled a 2-4 record. The “successful” road trip inspired Jahlil Okafor to declare, “We really made huge strides this road trip”. Now, please remember, Jah is a rookie so he may have gotten a little excited about the team’s play on the road trip.
While there is absolutely some truth to Jah’s statement, it should be noted that a number of the same old problems simply killed the Sixers on their recent six-game West Coast swing.
After the jump I’ll take a look at three areas of improvement during the road trip as well as three problems that continued to plague the 76ers over the last six games.
