Philadelphia pounds Brooklyn for 11th straight win

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Detroit Pistons, 4-4-2018 - Expert Prediction Dario Saric Out for 76ers vs. Nets with Elbow Injury; To Be Re-evaluated Tuesday
Sidney Guerrero | 05 April, 2018, 01:46

The Pacers would have the best player on the court with superstar Victor Oladipo.

Which brings us to Robert Covington, the only player on the Sixers with more steals than turnovers this season.

The Detroit Pistons (37-40) host the Philadelphia 76ers (47-30) on Wednesday night, where they'll look to continue a five-game win streak.

This one got away from the Nets in the second quarter, and the onslaught quickly continued in the opening moments of the third quarter.

Then, in an instant, he stopped dead in his tracks.

Philadelphia as a team have bought into sharing the ball and assisting on baskets.

"The Process" has been nice to the Sixers over the past couple of years.

As I look at this team and contemplate the rest of the traditionally weak Eastern Conference, I don't think it's unreasonable to say that if Embiid can come back in a mask and be effective, this team could make it to the National Basketball Association finals. "The combination of the two is a powerful formula". Their 47-30 record now has them in fourth place in the east and facing a first round matchup against the Pacers, a side they would no doubt be confident of beating.

Yes, the schedule has featured some weak teams lately.

The camera shows the judge, prosecutors and defense lawyers, but not potential jurors who are being questioned as a group. One juror said the panel was split 10-2 in favor of conviction, while another said the group was more evenly divided.

The 76ers were rocked recently by injuries to starters Joel Embiid and Dario Saric, but Simmons' leadership and strong form has kept the wins coming and confirmed his favouritism for the NBA Rookie of the Year Award ahead of Utah Jazz rival Donovan Mitchell.

Embiid may be absent, but Simmons is still an elite young talent and will be unstoppable in this game.

With one breath, Brown spoke with optimism about Embiid's post-surgical status.

The Phillies seem unlikely candidates to keep this going, at least based on what we've seen so far this season.

The only concern was pushing his lone free throw attempt, but hopefully that is just an anomaly. The spread ranges from -2.5 to -3.5 in favor of the Sixers, so make sure to shop around for the best line.

Yeah, the mind can wander to unusual analogous places sometimes. As it sits today, the Cavaliers hold the three seed, the 76ers hold the four seed, and the Pacers hold the five. Brown said Saric will miss Wednesday's trip to Detroit and the Sixers expect he will return for Friday's visit from Cleveland, a game that will carry significant implications for Eastern Conference playoff seeding.

They have beat the Over/Under 0 times in this two-week span, while falling under 0 times.

Considering Philadelphia has already clinched a playoff spot for the first time since 2012, it's possible the organization would prefer to be careful with its key players with six games remaining in the regular season.
