The Philadelphia 76ers were defeated by the Brooklyn Nets 107-86 on Sunday, but they were defeated by the challenging play-in round. The Orlando Magic and Indiana Pacers' victories compelled a Wednesday meeting between the 76ers and the Miami Heat. The victor will face the winner of the Bulls-Hawks match, while the loser will face the seventh seed in the East playoffs.
It will be difficult to defeat the Heat for the seventh spot, but the 76ers will play at home with Tyrese Maxey and Joel Embiid available. With a 2-2 season series split between the two clubs, Philly should anticipate a close, intense game. In the playoffs, the second-seeded New York Knicks will be waiting for them if they win.
Issues Philadelphia 76ers Need To Address Before Playoffs:

Shooting

Surprisingly, two of the NBA's most prolific scorers are on a team that ranks 23rd in the league in shot percentage (46.4%). Joel Embiid is making 52.9% of his shots, but more needs to be done by the other players. To win at least one postseason series, the shooting percentage of the Philadelphia 76ers needs to rise.

Fastbreak Points

In the open court, the Philadelphia 76ers must significantly improve their ability to stop leaks. They rank 24th in the NBA in terms of points allowed off the bench per game, at 15.4. In that category, the Memphis Grizzlies and the listless Washington Wizards performed better than them. In each match, each forfeits 15.1 fastbreak points.

Injuries

Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey's health problems will undermine every problem the Philadelphia 76ers have to deal with. After nearly suffering another devastating knee injury late in the season, "The Process" has just made a full recovery.
Embiid also played with an injury last season. Should he be unable to overcome his injury woes, Philadelphia's postseason destiny appears certain to be another disappointing one.

Rebounding

With 43.0 rebounds per game, the Philadelphia 76ers rank 20th in the NBA in terms of rebounding. In the postseason, holding an opponent will be vital for securing possession. Tobias Harris, Paul Reed, Mo Bamba, Embiid, and the entire Philadelphia frontcourt must contribute in this area.
The 76ers have struggled to neutralize transitional offense. If that problem coexists with their deficiency in rebounds, they will be eliminated from the playoffs.
