The Philadelphia 76ers are rolling right along without Joel Embiid.

The Pistons were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention after their 115-108 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

His 2017-18 performance to date even caught the eye of 76ers legend Julius "Dr. J" Erving, who called Simmons a "o$3 nce in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime-type player". Our head coach is still out, and it's going to take him a little time to get back as well, so I don't know what we're capable of doing.

They would need to win their remaining five games while the Milwaukee Bucks lose their last four games to reach the postseason.

Victor Oladipo has lead the Pacers to clinching a spot in the Playoffs after many thought this team would be a lottery team in the preseason. 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.

Blake Griffin missed his fourth game in a row with a bruised ankle, but could return to the lineup when the Pistons host the Dallas Mavericks tomorrow night.

She said she's in "a completely different place" in her life right now, with a serious boyfriend and thriving businesses. Polizzi later explained to Entertainment Tonight Online she was just drunk when she anxious about ruining her marriage.

Embiid had surgery Saturday to fix the broken bone around his left eye.

Particularly the 76ers, who are hungry chasing their first playoff berth since 2012 and doing so in the wake of the Philadelphia Eagles winning the Super Bowl and Villanova winning the NCAA tournament. They also harassed the Pistons forcing 13 first-half turnovers and 17 overall. By the end of the quarter, the Nets were down 22, 93-71, sunk by a 32-point quarter from the Sixers. Philadelphia was up 65-49 at halftime, and the margin didn't reach single digits again until the waning moments of the fourth.

Six players scored in double figures to lead the Jazz (45-33) to their third straight win. J.J. Redick was creating opportunities from inside the arc due to the threat of his perimeter shot.

"They tore us up tonight", said Coarch Stan Van Gundy in a post-game press conference televised on Fox Sports. F Robert Covington was shaken up in the third quarter after taking an elbow to the cheek from Detroit's Reggie Jackson.

Stanley Johnson had a nice game with 19 points, five rebounds, four assists, and three steals.

Both have remarkably versatile stars: LeBron James is averaging 27.4 points, 9.1 assists and 8.7 rebounds per game; Philadelphia's Ben Simmons is averaging 16 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists, with five triple-doubles in the last month.
