Detroit Pistons officially eliminated from playoffs with loss to Sixers

Detroit Pistons officially eliminated from playoffs with loss to Sixers

A lottery team since, Philadelphia, with its "process" of perpetual tanking and draft-pick piling, can beat the Cavs and wind up in third in the East with a pretty clear path to the conference finals. All we know are the facts of the matter, and the facts indicate that the Jazz would have been about a 34-win team over the course of a full season if we extrapolate that 24-game sample out over a full year. 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.

â– Tolliver has found a groove in the starting role with Griffin out for the last four games, tying his season high with 25 points.

Both teams are dealing with injuries to their big men here.

With Redick leading the way, the Sixers opened up a 19-point cushion in the second quarter. Drummond scored 13 points with 15 rebounds.

Over his past five games, the rookie forward is averaging 15.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 9.8 assists in 30 minutes of floor time. Bjoerndalen failed to qualify for the Pyeongchang Games and revealed Tuesday that he struggled with heart murmurs during the season. They maintained their heavy dose of three-point shooting, connecting on 17 of 42 for a fantastic 40.5 percent success rate.

The Lakers also have an excellent group of young players in the shape of Brandon Ingram, Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma, but McCollum suggested joining the Sixers would make LeBron's life easier in terms of reaching the National Basketball Association finals. Nicknamed "The King of Biathlon", the 44-year-old competed at six Olympics.

The under is 16-5 in the last 21 head-to-head matchups, and Cleveland is 2-10 against the spread in its previous 12 games in Philadelphia. Their 13-26 record away is woeful, but at home they are sitting at 24-14, akin to sides like Boston and OKC.

"Once in a decade, maybe once in a lifetime-type player", Erving said of Simmons' skillset, via Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Before losing to the Sixers, the Pistons had won five straight games including seven of their last eight. Johnson consistently got to the rim with strong drives, but was out of control at times which is why he finished with five turnovers. With the 76ers playing the second game of a back to back and the Pistons playing tough defense, this one stays under the total.
