All of a sudden the Sixers are at three wins in a row and have a very good chance to extend it further with 4 of the next 5 at home.
"They seem to like this time of year" was my initial thought...
Which then led me to these stats:
2017-18 in late December/January went 7-0.
2016-17 in January went 6-0.
Although is this merely due to heavy home fixturing? Since teams like Perth and Melbourne can't host games in January due to tennis the more flexible arenas such as Adelaide host more games.
Sixers winning streak and Wildcats losing streak at this time of year could be correlated to this? Is it that simple?
