Embiid: 'Unlikely But Still A Chance' To Play In Sixers' Game 1

Apr 10 2018 Atlanta GA USA Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons is introduced before a game against the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena

"It's going to be fun".

While it's obviously fun to watch the Sixers continue to gel and win on the court, the team has been successful because they are just that, a team.

The Sixers played without Joel Embiid (eye) and J.J. Redick (back tightness) Wednesday. It seems like he will be able to rejoin the Sixers at some point in their first-round playoff series.

For weeks, Brown ordered his Sixers to be, in his words, "on a warpath" to win at least a No. 4 seeding in the Eastern Conference tournament.

The only way Cleveland would have finished No. 3 was if it won and Philadelphia lost. There, they would remain.

The Philadelphia 76ers won their 16th straight game to close out the National Basketball Association regular season, setting an National Basketball Association record for longest win streak to end a regular season and clinching the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Philadelphia's first playoff game will be played at The Center this weekend.

The victor of the series will face the Sixers should they see off the Heat. Most recently, Miami prevailed, 108-99, March 9. "Me, 100 percent", Simmons said. They've been (playing) really well. "We're thrilled that this moment has finally arrived and look forward to watching the best fans in the world come together for the 2018 NBA Playoffs".

Simmons also have a long journey from draft day to his debut, including a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot that cost Simmons the entire 2016-17 season, which would have been his rookie season if he had been healthy enough to play.

In Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook clinched a triple-double average for the second straight season, Paul George scored 40 points and the Thunder beat Memphis. And Sixers head coach Brett Brown was simply happy when Fultz regained his form.

"I don't think I'm ready to play", he said on Wednesday night before the Sixers beat the Milwaukee Bucks for their 16th consecutive victory.

Dario Saric, who left a game early in Atlanta Monday with a chipped tooth and lacerated lip, recovered quickly to provide 24 points and a plus-minus of 27, helping to limit Giannis Antetokounmpo to 10 points.

"The "Phila Unite" campaign was thoughtfully developed for our fans and city over the past several years in anticipation of this moment, the moment when the 76ers returned to the NBA Playoffs", said Chris Heck, Philadelphia 76ers President of Business Operations. That will include Amir Johnson at center, with Ersan Ilyasova and Richaun Holmes providing five-spot depth. "I can rant and rave right now but I don't think that's the important thing". We play fast. We shoot threes.
