In what looked to be a lost season, the Sixers will end up playing a 66-game schedule in a much shorter span of time. Some say this can favor the young Sixers bunch.

Now let's not start thinking that the Sixers can win the East, but it should be their goal to contend and battle with the best of them.
I really like how the Sixers ended last year and they showed they can play with the Miami Heat, who are sure to be up in the tops of the NBA again this year.
Enough chatter, let's get on to my stat predictions for the starters.
