Philadelphia is coming off of a 49-23 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Atlanta Hawks 103-96 in game seven.

A pair of last-season stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The 76ers were fourth best in fouls drawn per game, finishing the 2020-2021 season with 21 on average. But New Orleans was even better: they ranked second in the league in fouls drawn per game, closing the year with 21.3 on average. Be prepared to get familiar with the officiating crew.
