What really tells us how the Sixers are doing are statistics.
Statistics, in all sports, are not debatable points. They are the cold hard facts that tell you how it is. In fact, they are the only tangible reference for pretty much anything that goes on. Without them, no one could formulate an argument or opinion on any sports-related topic.
Thus, in order to really assess the Sixers thus far, it is important (and also fun) to find some statistics that can give a further explanation on trends of the team. Plus, they can be viewed as a tool to identify areas that need improvement.
The stats on the surface are not the only ones mentioned. In fact, almost every stat leads to some form of another stat. Let's see what the numbers have to say, because of course, the numbers never lie.
