Sixers open up National Basketball Association playoffs on Saturday at 8 pm on ESPN

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Milwaukee Bucks - 4/11/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

The Bucks have won two out of three against the 76ers this season, including a 118-110 victory in their last matchup. Redick hit 6 of 9 from beyond the 3-point arc, while Ilyasova and Belinelli - who started the season in Atlanta but were dumped by the rebuilding Hawks - combined for nine 3-pointers.

The Philadelphia 76ers are shooting 36.6 percent from beyond the arc and 75.5 percent from the free throw line. Then there is Philadelphia, which was the only team in the National Basketball Association this season to boast five players who scored at least 1,000 points. Their resume includes three championships. Look for Philadelphia to find a way to grind out a win here to close the season.

"We're ready to go", Ben Simmons said.

Regardless of what color the mask is, Embiid's return is of massive importance to Philadelphia's playoff hopes. "It still doesn't feel all the way right". "The team has been fantastic".

When LeBron James took the floor for Cleveland against NY on Wednesday night, it represented a first for the four-time MVP - this is the first of his 15 seasons in which he's played in every regular-season game.

Finishing No. 3 could possibly lead to a second-round meeting with the Boston Celtics, who have lost four of five and are limping into the playoffs without Kyrie Irving, who is out for the season.

If the Cavs win and Sixers lose in their respective finales, they'd both have records of 51-31, but Cleveland would get the No. 3 seed as Central Division champs.

Brett Brown doesn't want them letting up now. And when we lose a heavyweight, other people do step up. "That, in and of itself, is rare and not to be taken for granted".

The victor of the series will face the Sixers should they see off the Heat.

"We definitely know we can't win the whole thing without (Antetokounmpo)", Bucks guard Eric Bledsoe told reporters.

He leads the team in scoring (22.9 points per game) and rebounding (11.0).

On the 76ers being a playoff team after a decade-plus of losing, something the Hawks are now preparing to experience, Budenholzer said, "There's a lot of lessons to be learned". There wasn't really much of a drop-off. "I think it's just trying to get him with the ball in his hands - touch a ball".

The Rockets will cap the winningest season in franchise history at Sacramento on Wednesday while the Lakers play the Clippers at Staples Center. Ersan Ilyasova scored 26 points off the bench.

Marco Belinelli had a typical Marco night, as he took some outrageous shots from deep, including a hilarious flailing deep heave that miraculously banked in from deep.

Howard averaged 13.5 points, 12.7 rebounds and over a block per game for the Hawks and was still traded. "Right now we're starting to make inroads but I think it would be misleading to suggest that he could play in Game 1", he said.

That's a bit of an understatement. He has spearheaded the Sixers' 15-game winning streak and is the clear favorite ahead of Utah's Donovan Mitchell and LA's Kyle Kuzma for Rookie of the Year honors. The Bucks entered Tuesday holding the sixth spot in the East, one game up on the Heat and 1.5 up on the Wizards.
