It’s been an underwhelming start to the 76ers’ season. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are both healthy, as is Markelle Fultz, but Philly is just 6–5 with some bad losses and questionable wins.
They’ve beaten the Bulls, the Magic, the Hornets, the Hawks, the Clippers and the Pistons. All of those wins came at home and a few of them came by just a bucket (Magic by one, Hornets by two).
Bad losses include the Celtics by eighteen, the Raptors by seventeen and, most recently, the Nets by — gulp — twenty-five.
Ben Simmons aired some frustration after the blowout in Brooklyn. I’m wondering if the expectations are just a little too high for this team. Fultz may turn his career around because he’s so young but he’s not a player at this point. Simmons is clearly overrated in today’s game, if you ask me, or if you just look at his postseason numbers.
Embiid is the only star this team has and he’s legit, though not always the most efficient and judicious in his shot selection.
In the East, Philly is a playoff team and probably one in the top half but there’s a wide gap between it and the real contenders.
Indiana is somewhere in between Philly and those “real contenders.” You have the feeling it just isn’t good enough to break through, but that it will be the last team standing, fighting the team that eventually does.
These Pacers are challengers, led by a workhorse in Victor Oladipo, an under-appreciated big in Myles Turner and a bunch of heady, team players with various skill sets.
Oladipo is off of being named Eastern Conference Player of the Week after sinking the Celtics and running all over a couple of inferior opponents in New York and Chicago, who, by the way, Indiana only beat by a combined eight points.
He scored twenty-eight on Monday night against the Rockets but James Harden got the last laugh. It’s how Indiana’s season ended last year and it’s the way I suspect it will end this year. There isn’t any shame in being the toughest competition, though.

Free Philadelphia 76ers vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction: under.
I don’t see either offense really trying to push the pace. Either defense, meanwhile, is going to lock in. It could stay under 200, though 210 would be nice.
