The Philadelphia 76ers are just two games away from completing the 2014-2015 season and although they will not be making the playoffs, these next games can give them some confidence heading into next season and potentially knock a team out the playoffs.
On Monday night, Sixers will go up against the Milwaukee Bucks, who as of tonight, still haven't clinched a playoff berth. They have a chance to decrease their odds of making the playoffs.(Playoff berth was clinched after this was wrtitten)
The Sixers can play a major part determining if the Bucks make the playoffs and who they will face if they do get in. Winning this game can go a long way for the Sixers.
To close out the season, they will face the Miami Heat, and they can determine whether or not the Heat goes to the playoffs.
This may be a key game for the Miami Heat and it would give the Sixers something to be proud of, if they can knock off the Heat, a team who have reached the NBA Finals the past four years.
Any win over these next two games can give the Sixers momentum heading into next season.
The Sixers are a young team and wins like these can give them confidence moving forward and with players constantly developing, they can head into the next season ready to win.
