The Philadelphia 76ers have reached the midway point of the 2023-24 NBA season -- Nick Nurse's first as the team's head coach. 41 games down, 41 games to go.

Here's a quick glimpse at where the Sixers stand with 50 percent of the regular season schedule behind them.

Overall record: 28-13, 3rd in Eastern Conference

Home record: 16-6

Road record: 12-7

Record vs. teams over .500: 9-10

Record vs. teams below .500: 19-3

Points per game: 119.6, 6th in NBA

Rebounds per game: 43.6, T-13th in NBA

Assists per game: 25.3, 22nd in NBA

Field goal percentage: 47.5, 15th in NBA

3-point percentage: 37.1, 13th in NBA

Offensive rating: 119.5, 6th in NBA

Defensive rating: 111.1, 4th in NBA

Net rating: 8.3, 2nd in NBA

Turnovers per game: 12.2, T-1st in NBA

Fast break points per game: 16.3, 5th in NBA

Points in the paint: 51.4, 12th in NBA

Second chance points: 15.2, 9th in NBA

Points off turnovers: 17.6, T-7th in NBA

In summary, the Sixers have been very solid so far this season. They've done a great job of taking care of the basketball under Nurse, as evidenced by the fact that they're tied for fewest turnovers per game with the Dallas Mavericks.

They're also taking care of business by beating teams that they should beat. The Sixers are 19-3 against teams under .500 on the season. On the flip side of that though, they'll need to step it up against top-tier teams, as Philadelphia has a losing record (9-10) against teams with a winning record.

They've been an average shooting and rebounding team, but they're in the top seven in both offensive and defensive rating, and they're second in overall net rating behind only the Boston Celtics.

The Sixers are currently on pace to win 56 games and finish the campaign with a record of 56-26. That number would represent the team's most wins in a single season since the 2000-01 season -- the last time that the team advanced to the NBA Finals. They finished with a 54-28 record last season.
