The Philadelphia 76ers might not have had the offseason they expected, but their regular season is turning out to be quite incredible. They are on a six-game winning streak, having just won their most recent bout against the Chicago Bulls with a 114-105 score. The Sixers won their previous matchup against the Bulls as well by 103-98. Obviously, superstar Joel Embiid is enjoying this victorious run and wasn’t shy to gloat a little in front of Bulls fans after another victory.

Ben Simmons is missing games because of personal reasons. Tobias Harris and Isaiah Joe did not play because of health and safety protocols, with Danny Green missing because of injuries. However, that hardly stopped the Sixers from giving an incredible performance. Joel Embiid finished the night with a 30-point performance and grabbed a whopping 15 rebounds.

Furkan Korkmaz followed behind Embiid with 25 points, and 5 other players scored in double digits. This was definitely a moment to be proud of as their victories continued to pile up. So, Embiid took a more cocky road to relish the moment by waving goodbye to the Bulls fans.

Thanks to Ben Simmons, the 76ers missed a very good opportunity to be title contenders last season. However, with him out, things seem to be going very well for Philly. They have continued to fine Simmons, while also looking for the best possible trade deal.

As the season progresses, matchups are only going to get tougher and more intense. They may be surviving well without a good point guard right now but will be in desperate need later. So, it is high time that they put an end to the Simmons fiasco already, ship him off and get the perfect replacement. Of course, easier said than done but they do need to act quickly.

The 76ers are playing the New York Knicks next. Will they be able to extend their winning streak further? Or will the Knicks find a way to put that at a halt?
