Philadelphia 76ers, Cleveland Cavaliers set for game with playoff implications

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid celebrates a three-point shot during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat Tuesday Feb. 27 2018 in Miami. The Heat defeated the 76ers 102-101

The Philadelphia 76ers are beating teams into the ground during this 10-game winning streak, but they're still without their best player, and when these teams met a couple of weeks ago, the Nets only lost by four points.

The win was the Sixers' 11th straight as they consolidated fourth spot in the Easter Conference to remain bound for their first play-offs in six years with five games to finish the regular season. 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.

Anthony Tolliver led Detroit with 25 points and Stanley Johnson had 19. Jarrett Allen had 5 points and only one field goal attempt. Redick's 13 first-quarter points tied his season high for any quarter. He hasn't improved much in the National Basketball Association, making just 34 percent of his jump shots for the 76ers, last among 221 players with at least 150 attempts in 2017-18.

As the National Basketball Association playoffs loom, Friday sees a potential Eastern Conference later-round series preview as the Philadelphia 76ers host the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7 p.m. ET.

Richaun Holmes only played 19 minutes, finishing with 11 points, three rebounds, three assists, and three steals. In the first, he went 8-for-11 from the floor for 21 points, grabbed 12 rebounds, and dished out ten assists. The Pistons' point guard is coming off a good game though, having put up 29 points against the Nets yesterday. They maintained their heavy dose of three-point shooting, connecting on 17 of 42 for a fantastic 40.5 percent success rate. F Robert Covington was shaken up in the third quarter after taking an elbow to the cheek from Detroit's Reggie Jackson. Fultz is averaging 6.8 points, 4.3 assists and 2.5 rebounds in 16.7 minutes per game through six games. The Pistons' point guard shot 1-11 from the field and had to settle for a lot of bad looks.

Are the host Philadelphia 76ers going to secure a 13th consecutive victory tonight when they are a small favorite over the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Davis struggled in the previous two games after twisting an ankle in a loss to Portland on March 27.

New Orleans Pelicans forward E'Twaun Moore knocked down seven three-pointers en route to 30 points in a 123-95 rout of the Memphis Grizzlies. They won the rebound battle 56-36 with six players on Philly getting five or more rebounds.
