Last season the Philadelphia 76ers were 3-10 to start the season.
A year later, the club has pulled a 360 and is off to a 10-3 to start, its best since 2001 thanks to Monday’s 94-82 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
In ’10-11, the Sixers had to wait until their 25th game to post win No.10. Just 13 games into ’11-12, the resurgent Sixers are leading the Atlantic Division by four games over Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire’s Knicks.
Who would have thought that going into the season?
The Sixers rank in the top-ten in almost every major statistical team category; 4th in points per game, 7th in rebounding, 8th in assists per game and the most telling: second in points allowed per game.
What is even more surprising about the teams fast start is the fact that the Sixers lead the NBA in margin of victory at close to 15 points, more than five points ahead of the second-ranked Chicago and MVP Derrick Rose.
Andre Iguodala has the Sixers flying-high to start the '11-12 season.
