Sixers extend win streak, T'Wolves snap playoff drought

Justin Anderson scored a team-high 25 points and Dario Saric delivered 24 for the red-hot Sixers in one of 12 games on Wednesday marking the end of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association regular season. "But we just got to see how it feels day-by-day". With AP Photos.Philadelphia 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid says it's unlikely he'll be available for at least Game 1 of the playoffs this weekend.

Ben Simmons has taken the league by storm in his de facto rookie year, leading the Sixers to their first 50-win season since 2001 and achieving multiple personal milestones along the way. Antetokounmpo tallied 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The Timberwolves advance to play Harden's Rockets in the first round. He is a 6-foot-10 point guard who probably will draw one of Miami's frontcourt players like James Johnson as a primary defender, rather than stick any of the Heat guards in that size disadvantage.

In Cleveland, LeBron James played in his 82nd game, scored 10 points and then got some rest for the playoffs in the Cavaliers' loss to NY in coach Jeff Hornacek's final game with the Knicks. In the Sixers' season finale, Fultz notched a triple-double, making him the youngest ever to do so in National Basketball Association history.


Also, the top-seeded Toronto Raptors will host the Washington Wizards in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

In Oklahoma City, Russell Westbrook clinched a triple-double average for the second straight season, Paul George scored 40 points and the Thunder beat Memphis. They were without Embiid for the final nine games of the streak (including the game in which he was injured), played at the league's fastest pace over that stretch, and managed to cut down on turnovers.

Redick was a late scratch with lower back tightness and Simmons, who finished with four points, missed both shots in the first half.

The record was on Westbrook's mind from the opening tipoff Wednesday as he had just one point and 11 rebounds at halftime.

There are also individual milestones and team records on the line. "If people could get 15 rebounds, they would".
