Obviously, the Sixers have been potent without their defensive centerpiece but, with a pending playoff match-up against a team that will nearly certainly have more experience, Philadelphia being at full strength will be important. For the Bucks it's been Bledsoe (25.6 points, 6.4 assists and 2.0 steals) and Jabari Parker (16.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.2 steals), while Ilyasova (13.6 points and 10.0 rebounds) and JJ Redick (22.0 points) have been great for the 76ers. With that, they would take a franchise, single-season-record 16-game winning streak into a playoff game Saturday against the Miami Heat.

"They killed me. The poured strawberry milk, chocolate milk, water, they drowned me with everything but it's all love and appreciation", he said. "It's going to be fun".

Embiid, who suffered the injury when he and Sixers team-mate Markelle Fultz collided on March 28, was fitted for a protective facemask an practised at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Wednesday.

The losses of superstars like Al Horford (Boston), Paul Millsap (Denver) and Kyle Korver (Cleveland), not to mention Jeff Teague (Minnesota) and most recently Dwight Howard (traded to Charlotte before the start of this season for Marco Belinelli, now with the 76ers) and Miles Plumlee, have weakened what was once a team playing for the Eastern Conference title some three seasons ago. The Sixers can not win the Atlantic Division. No problem. The Sixers hit 11 3s in the first half and could have celebrated the No. 3 seed at halftime. There, they would remain.

The Philadelphia 76ers are back in the National Basketball Association playoffs for the first time since the 2011-12 season. That didn't happen before the finale this year, so James played all the way to the finish.

Philadelphia and Miami split their season series.

HORNETS 119, PACERS 93: Dwight Howard finished with 14 points and 17 rebounds and Frank Kaminsky tied his career high with 24 points as topped host Indiana Pacers. "That's mine. I wasn't aware that he was that close to a triple-double".

76ers head coach Brett Brown spoke to ESPN after the game and explained why he thought Fultz' teammates swarming him after he achieved his triple-double was such a special sight to see.

"I wouldn't want to play these guys in the first round with them having home-court", Carlisle said. The Sixers are making their first trip to the postseason since 2012. That will include Amir Johnson at center, with Ersan Ilyasova and Richaun Holmes providing five-spot depth.

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". We play fast. We shoot threes.

"I very much look forward to bringing Joel back". "For me, I want to come out and make a statement that we are ready. I am not intimidated by that at all".

The Sixers capped the season in style.

Stats to know for the Sixers vs. Heat first-round series. "It's a group that really enjoys each other's company". That isn't who we are right now. "We are an old club, with a tremendous amount of culture and a tremendous amount of history".
