Take a look at the top 5 remaining Sixers games
The Philadelphia 76ers have had a fantastic 2022, carrying a 16-7 record and working their way up the Eastern Conference standings. Joel Embiid single-handedly took the 76ers all the way to the 3rd seed. Thanks to a recent exchange of disgruntled point guard Ben Simmons for an impressive guard James Hardenthe 76ers will only continue to rise in the standings.
As we approach the push to the playoffs, it’s time to look at the top 5 games remaining for the rest of the Philadelphia 76ers season.
5. March 29 â Bucks @ Sixers
the Milwaukee dollars will look to march to Philadelphia and pick up a win against a season-ending 76ers team. Their motivations will either be for seeding reasons or personal pride. The two teams recently faced off, culminating in a hard-fought 123-120 victory for the 76ers. Favorite MVP Joel Embiid led the Sixers in points (42), rebounds (14) and assists (5), while Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped 32 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists for a near triple-double in the loss.

4. March 7 â Sixers @ Bulls
76ers travel to Chicago to face DeMar DeRozan, Dark Horse MVP Candidate in what is sure to be a battle. The Sixers won their last game against the Bulls by a score of 119-108. Joel Embiid featured a 40-point rebound game 10, while DeMar DeRozan lost 45 points in response. The battle between these two is always something to see and add on top of that there’s a battle between the guards with James Harden and Zach LaVine matching to fill that star-studded All-Star Battle.

3. March 5 â Sixers @ Heat
Former Sixer Jimmy Butler and his first seed Miami Heat will look to defend his home ground against Joel Embiid and master class goalscorer James Harden. This game will be extremely important for the 76ers for several reasons.
First, the 76ers will test their new addition and his fit in the roster against the best team in the East, taking on a fantastically coached squad under Head Coach Erik Spoelstra. The Miami Heat have also Philadelphia native Kyle Lowry on their team. A player that many fans and media personnel wanted Daryl Morey to trade Ben Simmons for.
Second, this game could prove very important for the standings as the Sixers look to dethrone the teams above them in an attempt to move up. Currently sitting third in the East, the Sixers could look to secure the ground throughout the playoffs.

2. March 14 â Nuggets @ Sixers
the Denver Nuggets and Nikola Jokic’s reigning MVP, will come to Philadelphia and face a 76ers team led by Joel Embiid and James Harden. The talk of the game will be the showdown between the two centers and last year’s top two voters for League Most Valuable Player. Joel Embiid, who probably would have won had he not been injured, will definitely play with a chip on his shoulder as Jokic is the only real MVP contender right now, unlike Embiid. .
As the big two face off, the media and fans will point to this match as a major deciding factor in this year’s MVP race. Embiid and Jokic are the first runners for the award again this year. The game between these two alone will make this Sixers basketball game a must-watch.

1. March 10 â Nets @ Sixers
The most exciting regular season game to come is without a doubt the (potential) return of Ben Simmons at Wells Fargo Stadium when the 76ers face the visiting Nets. Ben Simmons, who notoriously missed the entire season in an attempt to force the 76ers to trade him, is set to face the 76ers fans he was tired of playing in front of. The multiple-time All-Star guard would take on his former teammates and the fans he turned his back on, and that alone would propel this game to be one of the most heated games of the entire season.
Beyond Simmons’ return, Joel Embiid would be a former rival-turned-teammate-turned-rival, AndrÃ© Drummond. He would also face former Philadelphia sniper Seth Curry. Curry had one of the best seasons of his career with the 76ers, while Drummond had a fantastic year as Embiid’s backup.
