1982-83 Philadelphia 76ers

12-1 (.923)

The Sixers nearly delivered on Moses Malone's famous "fo, fo, fo" prediction, sandwiching sweeps of the Knicks in the Eastern Conference semifinals and the Lakers in the NBA Finals with a five-game victory against the Bucks in the conference finals. This Philadelphia team was so good that it was 57-9 in mid-March, before splitting its final 16 regular-season games to finish 65-17.
