Philadelphia didn’t exactly finish the season the way it wanted to.

The 76ers, while acquiring James Harden to bolster the backcourt, finished 51-31 and got the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. The team beat the Toronto Raptors in six games but lost to the Miami Heat in the semifinals in six games.
