76ers dump Hawks for franchise-record 15th straight win

The Bucks, who were led by Jabari Parker's 25 points, are 44-38, and wound up with the No. 7 seed and a first-round matchup against Boston. He took part in the warmup wearing a mask to protect a broken bone in his face.

"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. "There's a lot of accolades I want to get, but I ultimately want to win a ring".

At one stage on Wednesday, the Sixers led 72-37. With 26 points and eight rebounds, Philadelphia's Ersan Ilyasova played well. Unlike some of the NBA's "Super Teams", Coach Brown's squad exudes a fantastic, nearly familial energy that's absolutely contagious and has truly taken the city by storm. "We believed in ourselves. Obviously we're without (Joel Embiid) again, but we still have a great team".

Redick already missed time earlier this season with a leg injury, although he was fairly durable his last three seasons with the Los Angeles Clippers, playing at least 75 games in each of them.

The teams split their four meetings in the regular season and - with Embiid (orbital fracture) unlikely to be available any time soon - there's little reason to think Philadelphia's higher seed would qualify as much of an upper hand.

The Timberwolves advance to play Harden's Rockets in the first round. He cut his lip and chipped a tooth on the play, but it sounds like he's good to go tonight. "It'll hit me, what happened". The 30 wins at home are the second-most by an Eastern Conference team. If the playoffs started today, they'd host No. 6 Milwaukee. The Milwaukee Bucks are averaging 106.6 points on 47.9 percent shooting and allowing 106.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting. At 19 years and 317 days, Fultz is also the first teenager to post a triple-double in league history.

Westbrook entered Wednesday's home contest needing 16 rebounds against the Grizzlies to complete his triple double average for the second straight season. He pulled down his 16th rebound with just over nine minutes left in the third quarter and received a standing ovation.

Australian centre Aaron Baynes notched five points and six rebounds as his slumping Boston Celtics lost 113-101 to the Washington Wizards as John Wall recorded 29 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds for the Wizards.

In Sacramento, Willie Cauley-Stein had 22 points and 11 rebounds to help the Kings finish the regular season with a victory over Houston. Malcolm Brogdon adds 13 points per contest, Khris Middleton adds 20.3 points plus 5.3 boards and four assists a night and Tony Snell chips in 6.9 points per game. Philadelphia was in action on the road as they faced the Hawks Tuesday night in their road finale. "If people could get 15 rebounds, they would".
