NBA Playoffs 2018: Philadelphia 76ers to face Miami Heat in first round

76ers Unveil ‘PHILA Unite’ Playoff Campaign Rooted in City's History        Includes New Playoff Logo Special Playoff Court and Microsite

Ben Simmons has taken the league by storm in his de facto rookie year, leading the Sixers to their first 50-win season since 2001 and achieving multiple personal milestones along the way. I just don't. Despite getting hurt early in the season, Millsap is still scoring more than 14 points, six rebounds and almost three assist per game for a Nuggets team (46-35 and in the playoff hunt) that is on the rise. I think it's a real-time example when you hear me say, "Oh, they play together, they coexist, this and that" - that's real. "It's going to be fun".

The 76ers, who have won a franchise-record 15 in a row, can seal the No. 3 seed with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday in Philadelphia. Philadelphia is 29-11 at home and 32-18 against the Eastern Conference so far this season.

Phoenix (21-61) finished the season with the worst record in the league while Dallas (24-58) recorded its lowest win total in a full season since the 1997-98 campaign. Together, they hit nine 3-pointers. There, they would remain.

On a night when permutations for seeding were the talk of the National Basketball Association, the situation was relatively simple for the Milwaukee Bucks entering Wednesday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. The players watched the finish of that game, with enthusiasm, in the locker room.

And the Sixers have done all this without Joel Embiid for the last two weeks, after their center went down with an orbital bone fracture, which may keep him out for the first games of the playoffs. Most recently, Miami prevailed, 108-99, March 9. "But at the same time, we are ready to step up".

The Philadelphia 76ers lost Dario Saric 13 seconds into the game when he caught an elbow in the mouth, left the game, and did not return. He finished with 10 points in just over 10 minutes.

Champions! Bayern win sixth consecutive Bundesliga title
Bayern Munich defeated Bavarian rival Augsburg 4-1 to win its record-extending sixth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday. Robben scored the winning goal at Wembley in Bayern's 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the 2013 Champions League final.

After the loss to the 76ers, Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was in relatively good spirits. "That's mine. I wasn't aware that he was that close to a triple-double. I think it's a snapshot into who these guys are".

The Sixers enter the postseason with momentum after an incredible stretch. That will include Amir Johnson at center, with Ersan Ilyasova and Richaun Holmes providing five-spot depth.

"The strength of this team is so deep", Robert Covington said. "Hopefully, it gets approved and I get to play in it". We play fast. We shoot threes. "Obviously I want to play, but right now I feel like I'm not ready yet. with the way it's been progressing, hopefully I'll be back soon. I am not intimidated by that at all".

A Bucks win would have guaranteed Milwaukee sixth place, a matchup with either Philadelphia or Cleveland, and keeping their 2018 first round pick.

"I just got to take it day-by-day", Embiid told reporters. "It's a group that really enjoys each other's company".
